NEW YORK, Jan. 24 (UPI) -- AT&T has joined up with Avaya in an effort to help companies smoothly transition to Voice over Internet Protocol telephone systems.
The project is aimed at giving business customers a single point of contact for the design and implementation of VoIP deployments.
Avaya is a provider of business communications solutions, while AT&T boasts the IP network design and management expertise that companies will need as they wean themselves away from landlines.
The companies contend that VoIP has made the jump from emerging technology to an established option for corporate customers, and those customers will be looking to tech firms to help them make the changeover.
The companies said their operation would provide assistance in such matters as network monitoring, cost consolidation and customer support.
