AUSTIN, Texas – LifeSize, a division of Logitech and world leader in HD video collaboration, today announced that its products LifeSize® Passport™ and LifeSize® Express 220™ are compliant with key IP telephony solutions from Avaya, a global provider of business collaboration systems, software and services.

The applications now are compliance-tested by Avaya for compatibility with: Avaya Aura® Communication Manager and Avaya Aura® Session Manager with Avaya one-X® Communicator and the Avaya Desktop Video Device (audio only).
“At LifeSize, we believe that video products work best when they are easy to implement within a company’s existing infrastructure,” said Paul Cantwell, vice president of federal sales, LifeSize. “By pursuing improvements in infrastructure, we are now offering our joint customers a simpler, more cost-effective solution.”
LifeSize is a member of the Avaya DevConnect program – an initiative to develop, market and sell innovative third-party products that seamlessly interoperate with Avaya technology and extend the value of a company’s investment in its network.
As a Platinum member of the program, LifeSize is eligible to submit products for compatibility testing by the Avaya Solution Interoperability and Test Lab. There, a team of Avaya engineers develops a comprehensive test plan for each application to verify whether it is Avaya compliant. Doing so ensures businesses can confidently add best-in-class capabilities to their network without having to replace their existing infrastructure—speeding deployment of new applications and reducing both network complexity and implementation costs.
“By participating in Avaya’s compliance testing program and committing to open standards, development partners like LifeSize are helping businesses get more out of their network investment,” said Eric Rossman, vice president, developer relations, Avaya. “This helps our customers more easily communications-enable critical business processes and uncover new value that can help them build their bottom line.”
