BellSouth Means Business with Avaya VoIP

BellSouth will resell Avaya voice-over-Internet-protocol services to businesses under terms of an agreement between the two companies, announced Tuesday.

The regional Bell operating company said business customers within its service areas will now have access to Avaya’s VoIP, messaging and contact-center services.

“With Avaya, BellSouth can deliver standards-based business IP solutions that provide the resiliency, security, mobility and emergency-services support that customers demand," Avaya vice president, systems-integrator/service-provider channel Ralph Nimergood said in a prepared statement.
