5IP Office Release 9.0 Key Features Speaker Notes/Script:Read the title and subtitles.Notes for the Competitive Differentiators:What competitive advantage justification was used in the PRD? Is the competitive advantage still intact at the time of GA (has the competition advanced since PRD)?Where we still have gaps relative to the competition that should be objectively stated, with get-well plan.

Not only that, but we’ve addressed more than 100 GRIPs in IPO R9.0, the most of any IPO release. GRIPS are a mechanism to capture the voice of Avaya’s customers, partners, and employees into our R&D efforts.Plus over 100 GRIP requests addressed in R9.0
7Avaya IP Office Release 9.0 Server Edition Scalability Increases – Capacity and PerformanceNEWSystem capacity increased to 2000 usersIncrease in total users: 2000 up from 1000 in R8.1Single server capacity: 1500 up from 500 in R8.1Many other capacities increased significantly. For example:150 Voic channels (was 100)2000 Mailboxes, including IMAP/MAPI integrations750 One-X Portal users (was 500)18,000 BHCC no one-X users (was 14,400)7,200 BHCC with one-X users256 Conference channels per server (was 128)85 Recording channels (was 43)128 Paging group size (was 64)Same capacities also supported on Virtualized Server EditionR9.0 will significantly increase scalability of the IP Office Server Edition.Server Edition will now be Scalable to 2000 users, up from 1000 users in R8.1Single server capacity increases 1500 users, up from 500 in R8.1.To support this increase user scalability we’ve also increased various other capacities including VM channels, one-X Portal users, Busy Hour Call Completion, conferencing channels, recording channels, and page group size as summarized here.

10Avaya IP Office 9.0 Remote Call Admission Control Call Admission Control (CAC) contributes to quality assurance over an IP network and is supported today between two locations with IP Office at each location and over SIP trunks to PSTNRemote CAC support for remote sites that do not have an IP OfficeEnsure a Quality SIP phone call – equivalent ensuring there is a end to end voice channel to support your callWANRemote Location AHeadquartersIP OfficePSTNRemote Location BIP Phones registered to Headquarters IP OfficeSIP ITSPIP Phones registered to local IP OfficeCACRemote CAC
11Extend Further into Mid-Market Active Call Preservation SIPAvaya IP Office Server Edition Primary ServerAvaya 96x1Avaya IP Office Server Edition Secondary ServerIP Office provides numerous resiliency enhancements throughout the solution. With Release 9.0, Server Edition can now preserve the RTP (or voice) stream of active calls during network or call server outages where possible;Active call preservation is supported on 96x1 H.323 phones with H.323 and SIP trunks including SCN trunks between Server Edition Systems.Let’s take review an example based on the diagram on slide. Say we have a Server Edition customer with 9611 phones and SIP trunks and the secondary server happens to experience a power failure. The phones that are attached to that server which are on a call will stay active. Once the user disconnects from the, the endpoint will re-register to the primary server and will have full functionality as in a normal situation. As deployment sizes get larger, this capability becomes more important, and provides even more value to the customer.It is important to note that while the call can continue as long as media can flow but other call features like hold or transfer willnot be available.Active Call PreservationActive calls do not dropActive endpoints on affected server will re-register when the call disconnectsRequires 96x1 H.323 Phones and SIP/H.323 Trunks
12Avaya IP Office Release 9.0 Core Features Park across SCNAll nodes distribute information about their Parked calls across the SCN (to other 9.0+ nodes). Every node stores Park information for every other nodeSCN-wide Park slot conflict avoidanceCannot Park a call in Park slot 101 on Node B if that slot was already in useNo admin required. Optionally combine with Central Park Range on 1 or more/all nodesPerform direct dial of UnPark across SCNUser Parks call in slot 101Node BNode ANode A distributes Park info to SCNSCNTrunkAnother core feature enhancement is Park across an SCN. In release 9.0 there is a new enhancement for Park Awareness over a Small Community Network.All nodes distribute information about their Parked labels across the SCN (i.e. to other 9.0 nodes), and every node stores Park info for every other node.This means that SCN-wide Park labels avoid conficts, so that you cannot create new Park label 101 on Node B if it was already created on Node A
13Centralized with Survivability Branch OptionsWAN / Core is not ready so can’t rely on centralized architectureWant to leverage cost savings with centralized apps and managementMay have legacy endpointsExample customer: Rental Car CompanyDistributedNeed local apps and local presenceFew changes once installed, so central management is not that importantSurvivability important as standalone systemExample customer: Retail storesStandaloneCentralized with SurvivabilityWAN is VOIP readyOften have call center agents at the branchWant to leverage a core solution for consistent user experience with branchesExample company:Branch BankSpeaker NotesPurpose: This slide shows the various deployment options and the characteristics for each branch typeBranch- An office of a firm which is located somewhere other than the firm's main office location. A branch office is simply another location, and is still involved in the business activities of the firm but supports local market needs. Typical branch locations are <500 users.Centralized - Call processing is controlled by Avaya Aura in the enterprise core.Users register directly to the core during normal operation. If WAN connectivity to the is lost, the Centralized user automatically gets services from the local systemDistributed - Call processing is controlled by the local branch system. Applications may be centralized with the Avaya Aura core system.Standalone - Call processing is controlled by the local branch system. There are nocentralized applications
