2 Product/Solution Details New Offers and Pricing Summary AgendaOverviewProduct/Solution DetailsNew Offers and PricingSummarySo, first we’ll present, at a high level, Avaya’s vision of the IP Telephony as the foundation for enhanced enterprise communications through application enablement and integration. We’ll also overview how the new capabilities delivered in this launch reinforce this vision.Next we’ll cover both the exciting new enhancements to existing products as well as the net new products that are being launched to market. While we’ll talk about new features and functions, we’ll focus more on customer benefits and applications.Next we’ll cover the new maintenance offers associated with the launch of Communication Manager 5.0, specifically the separation of software and hardware support. This change consistent with Avaya’s evolution to a software company and mimics changes we’ve already made in other portfolios (modular messaging, distributed office).Finally, we’ll spend a moment to review our major points….
3 Avaya Architecture Foundation Platform Evolution for Avaya, Ecosystem and Customers SolutionAvaya has platform solutions today, leverage ATAC, CSIProblemSolving business issues today, while preparing for new technologiesBenefits:Solutions today to increase your communication efficiencyReduce costsInvestment protectionReduce risksOne of the major challenges enterprises face today is ensuring that their communications architecture not only can meet existing needs –such as connecting remote workers and integrating operations across the globe and reducing costs – but also become a platform that can provide a technological foundation for the future. Enterprises are looking to invest in communications platforms – software applications, and associated hardware and endpoints - that can be integrated with more and more of their internal systems and applications to streamline business processes. And while they may not be integrating these systems with the business processes today- they want to be sure that there is a migration path to do so in the future.Avaya IPT Architecture today addresses these challenges by supporting the evolution to end-to-end Session Initiation Protocol or SIP. SIP enhances the connectivity and openness of Communication Manager and associated end-user devices, resulting in reduced costs for trunking and connecting systems, faster deployment of new functions and enhanced options for linking communications with business processes to increase competitive advantage.The emphasize these points, the blue diagram shows the software foundation of Avaya solutions - we think of Communication Manager and SIP Enablement Services at the core, this expends to AES, voice portal and other customer service applications and much more today – these building blocks support the concept of intelligent communications.=================Avaya has made it easy for customers to invest in our platform solutions now and migrate to SIP at their own pace…and enjoy many benefits..You can deploy solutions today to increase your communications efficiency and reduce costs – for example, SIP trunking can reduce both hardware costs and PSTN costs.To gain even more efficiencies, you can leverage the strong ecosystem of development and alliance partners – from software/hardware companies like Microsoft and Samsung …to service providers like Verizon and AT&T – as well as internal SIP experts from ATAC and CSI.Purchasing Avaya platforms today protects investments for the future and reduce the risk of technological obsolescenceInvestment protection is supported from the server, applications and endpoint perspective (e.g. on our IP deskphones, firmware updates between H.323 and SIP at no extra cost, SIP services per user at no additional cost, now integrating SIP/H.323 services on same server; upgrades of gateway capabilities, etc)Businesses today are facing many challenges with their communications infrastructure

SIP trunking for CM has been enhanced to incorporate needed features for multi-site call centers, which we’ll discuss later. CM/SES also support Intelligent Customer Routing with Voice Portal; by front-ending a call center with VP , calls can be parked in self service until contact center routing replies with best avail agent, reducing network resources required to hold queued calls.2. SIP enhancements extend to the broader enterprise as wellThe Avaya one-X Deskphone 9600 series SIP R2 is now available and richens the feature set to make users more productive.Co-residency of the CM and SES on the S8300 Server gives small to mid market customers a cost-effective for option of delivering end-to-end SIP AND larger enterprises improved networking options for branch locations3. To address the needs to reduce costs today while protecting investments for future – Avaya has introduced several new enhancements to streamline the hardware required to deploy IPT solutions…In addition to the aforementioned co-residency of SES and CM on S8300, the new G450 Media Gateway is being launched. This cost-effective, modular platform is an excellent solution for small to mid sized campuses (when used with S8300 or S8500 server) or mid to large branch offices.Avaya’s is expanding the IG550 integrated gateway product family – two new gateway modules are now available that help bring Avaya IP telephony to enterprises deploying Juniper Networks J-Series routers.The S8730 is an even more resilient replacement for the S8720 Server -4. Finally, consistent with Avaya’s transition to a software company, Avaya has unbundled software and hardware maintenance services for Communication Manager 5.0. New offers include Software Support and Software Support Plus Upgrades. We are also offering introductory pricing to ease this transition for customer upgrading to CM 5.0.=========================SIP Contact Center (First pure end to end SIP contact center from any major vendor)Support up to 2500 SIP agentsSIP agent phone – 16CCExpert Agent SelectionExpanded SIP trunking optionsUUI & NCRAlternate routingIntelligent Enterprise Connect support (using Voice Portal in front of Call Center)SIP Enterprise/SMB supportCo-residency of SES and CM on S8300CExtend call feature for SIP phones (9600 SIP)SIP visiting user, and emergency dialing from unregistered SIP phonesEnhanced 9600 SIP feature setSupport of future SIP-based applicationsNew hardware supportG450 gatewayAdditional Juniper routers/IG550 optionsS8730 ServerG860 V2Support of SIP Trunk enhancementsHigher capacity, more interfacesOther featuresSurvivable CDR when in ESS modeISDN supplementary service on busy/no replySupport of 3rd party certificates (Verisign, others)Extension to Cellular 8.0IA770 Support of IMAP4Integrated Management 5.0ProblemCustomer inquiries within self-service immediately transferred to contact center resulting in increased hardware capacity to hold queued callsSolutionDeploy Voice Portal in front, “parking” calls in self-service until contact center routing replies with best available agent44

Both the design and user interface work better for agents than general phone. And is an evolutionary step in better intergrating SIP functions into the Contact CenterAlso important is SIP endpoint control via CTI – Now CTI apps like Interaction Center, Contact Center Express and Custeomr Interaction Center, Agent performance partners like NICE and Witness, Avaya and 3rd party dialers. Important because 30% of contact centers use CTI apps and until now, SIP-based endpoints had been invisible to these apps. No longer.Agent functions include:Agent Log-In / Log-OutManual-InAuto-InAux WorkAfter Call WorkSupervisor AssistThird-party Call ControlAES/ASAI can monitor and controlSupports Interaction Center (IC), Customer Interaction Express (CIE), Contact Center Express (CCE), Agent Performance (NICE, Witness); Avaya and third party dialersLow cost – presence, other SIP functions to be integrated…

9 SIP Trunking PSTN WAN SIP SIP Another advantage of SIP is that it is being used by Service providers for PSTN access. Will enable SPs to provide local and long distance VoIP calls over “data” WANs. Consolidating services over single interface rather than the “access line spaghetti” of multiple, single purpose T1/E1s that exists today. SIP trunking uses IP network interfaces from the Service provider – with the results much lower hardware cost from Avaya as there is less need to support more expensive TDM interfaces – which require more gateway cabinets and circuit packs. Fewer cabinets > less space > less power > less $ and “greener” solution.Avaya is working with several Service Providers, among them AT&T and Verizon, to ensure interoperability between their SIP trunking services and Communication Manager.H.323

These are examples based on real customers. The first is a contact center of 150 agents, the second is a contact center of 3000 agents.As can be seen – in the first case as much as $45K can be saved if SIP trunking is used. In the second, as much as $1.2M can be saved.In addition to the hardware savings, less real estate is needed, less power is required, and ongoing maintenance costs will be cheaper.
11 SIP Trunking Enhancements SIP in the Contact Center Avaya-authored SIP extension for User-to-User Information (UUI)Missing from current SIP standardsSupports Multisite Virtual Routing over SIP trunksNetwork Call Redirection (NCR) over SIP trunksCarrier Network redirects call from Call Center A to Call Center B over SIP trunkFrees up Communication Manager resources, reduces network bandwidth, better QoSWorking with Carriers to support bothAlso supporting alternate routing to PSTNIn the previous examples, Contact Center applications were used to show the benefits of SIP trunking. In the real world – many Contact Center applications rely of the PSTN providing certain features to ensure efficient routing of calls to the best possible agent. While these services have long been available over the PSTN through ISDN services, they are now just beginning to be supported over SIP trunking.Avaya has been instrumental is working with standards bodies to add these important capabilities to the SIP trunkiing feature set.The first important enhancement available in CM 5.0 is User-to-User Information. Avaya authored this extension to the current SIP standards to address the issue of forwarding information about the user along with the call as it is routed from one contact center to another or to trigger screen pops based on the customer information.The second capability is Network Call Redirection – which allows incoming contact center calls to be redirected to a different IVR or agent queue on a different ACD. This helps free up Communication Manager resources which in the absence of NCR, would be required for the duration of the call.One final capability is supporting alternate routing of a SIP trunk call to the PSTN – meaning that CM can sense a network problem on a SIP trunk and redirect the call over the PSTN.The first two capabilities are required for multisite contact center applications. The third feature is a business continuity feature – important for contact center but general enterprise as well.Deliver calls to the most available agent across distinct call centers
12 Communication Manager with S8300C Server SIP in Small and Mid-Market/Remote Offices Now includes embedded SES server for complete all-in-one SIP, H.323, and TDM telephony solutionReduces cost and footprintExact same SIP functionality as larger CM Media Servers with standalone SES serverScale with SIP networking between S8300-based remote officesLeverages centralized SIP-based apps100 SIP user limitS8300Co-resident CM and SES on the S8300C serverImportant for a couple of reasonsLower cost – no need to purchase additional server – smaller customers like this…Avaya’ first consolidated SIP/H.323/TDM platform – a harbinger of things to come from Avaya – gives you the ability to respond positively on RFPs that require end-to-end SIP solutionCan be networked together using SIP trunksCan leverage SIP-based apps like modular messaging and meeting exchangeNote that there is a 100 user limit on the SIP app…Finally, the S8300C works in our H.248 media gateway platformsG250G350G450

Lots of interest from field and customers…Targeted to mid to larger branch offices and small to mid sized branches. Like all H.248 gateways, it can be a configured pure subtending gateway – meaning call control is delivered by a centralized server running CM. It can also work as standalone with an S8300 “blade” server to serve up to 450 users or with an S8500 server with processor ethernet for up to 2400 users. And of course both the S8300 and S8500 can be configured as local survivable processors for extra resiliency for branch offices.More scalable, higher capacity that G700 –Much more resilient – dual power, hot swap mods, SLS + LSP(e.g., dual power supplies, hot swappable fan trays, supervisor, media modules)Great for Small to Mid campuses using S8500 and processor EthernetAlso good for branch offices currently using G650s – no sensitive IPSI cardsPrice competitive (in most cases cheaper) than G700Note that the G450 requires CM 5.0 or higher. For this reason we will keep the G700 around for legacy customers.

Defaults to larger configurationUp to 600,000 BHCC (w/hardware duplication & general call mix)Up to 36K stations, 12K trunksDoes have RAID for additional HDDs if desired as well as Dual Power suppliesIG550 Integrated GatewayThe IG550 is effectively a GX50 gateway on “blades” for Juniper J-series branch routers. The IG550 differs from the other GX50 gateways in that it only works in subtending mode; it does not support an S8300 server either in standalone mode or as a Local Survivable Processor. And it only works with Juniper J2320, 2350, 4350 or 6350 routers. The primary opportunity is with those enterprises that are going through a “router refresh” cycle and are looking for alternatives to Cisco. Juniper Networks is more than happy to work with us on any major opps.Important – while the IG550 was originally available in March 2007, this new release will enhance this product immensely as the new gateway blades better suit the capabilities of the product. New TGM have 20 VoIP channels; TGM has 10 VoIP channels vs current TGM550 which has 80. So the new modules are sized better for the smaller branch office.Note that there is are 2 analog trunks and 2 analog lines with every TGM mod.New Analog mods are in configs of 0 trunks/8 lines; 8 trunks/8 lines; 0 trunks/16 lines.

17 Extension to Cellular R8.0 – New Features Cellular Phone Voic Avoidance/Confirmed AnswerIf user doesn’t answer or if cell phone turned off or is out-of-coverage, call is pulled back to Coverage (e.g., voic , hunt group, etc.)Self Administration of Extension to CellularUser can direct incoming calls to international phone #sUsers can change cell phone numbering mapping remotelyMulti-Location Features:Admin of single Communication Manager with multiple Gateways to provide local numbers for feature accessThere have been several new enhancements to Extension to Cellular that will be available with E2C 8.0/CM 5.0.Most notably is cellular phone voic avoidance via the Confirmed Answer feature. This is a failsafe way to pull a call back into the Communication Manager-based call coverage hierarchy if the “extended” call isnt answered.The Self Administered Feature Extensions (SAFE) capabilities include users being able to direct calls to international numbers and change their mapped cell phone number without help from the Communication Manager system administrator.There are addiitonal features added to SAFE that help admins black out the mapped cell phone number from so that user cannot change the cell number to be mapped to as well as ability to make it easier forr third-party applications to alert multiple devices via one phone call.Finally – local numbers can now be given for feature access in Flatten Consolidated and Extended Communication Manager network with a single CM –based server and multiple gateways. This reduces carrier service costs for multi-location usage of Extension to Cellular.
