Avaya recently launched the Avaya Flare in Saudi Arabia. Avaya Flare is the industry’s first, next-generation user experience that delivers unique collaboration capabilities across video, voice and text. The new solutions, which range from personal desktop to multi-screen room systems, make high definition, low bandwidth video collaboration accessible for more employees in more enterprises at one-third the cost, using significantly less bandwidth than competing solutions.
Avaya is bringing the capability of making video calls and conferencing as easy as making a telephone call by using the same platform for both, within the grasp of large and small organizations in Saudi Arabia. Businesses can integrate real-time video into their IT infrastructure for better control of costs, quality of service, administration and management.
