Avaya Inc. and Samsung Electronics announced a strategic alliance to collaborate on the joint development and marketing of Internet protocol (IP) communications solutions to businesses globally. This collaboration will drive the delivery of enhanced IP convergence products and mobility solutions that integrate both companies' technologies, and offer enterprises greater choice in IP-based network services.

Under the agreement, Samsung and Avaya will co-develop and market products for IP-based solutions that serve the voice, video and data convergence market. Samsung's established position in the telecom industry, particularly in mobile technology, and Avaya's widely recognized IP telephony market leadership will complement each other, and provide customers with better choices of IP-based network services, the companies said.

At the initial stage, Samsung will market and resell Avaya's contact center and IP telephony solutions in Korea. The alliance will also drive the co-development of technologies that will enhance Avaya's IP-based mobility and convergence solutions. These solutions will be either co-branded or individually branded, and sold through Avaya's global sales channels.

"Samsung is very pleased to enter this agreement with Avaya. We believe this relationship will contribute toward our vision of enabling customers to incorporate converged technologies into their day-to-day operations," said Kitae Lee, the president of Samsung's telecommunication network business.

"We are proud to work with Samsung. This agreement enables us to increase our global competitive advantage in IP communications and further strengthen our position in the Asia Pacific region," said Donald K. Peterson, chairman and CEO of Avaya.
