Avaya, Juniper team up for secure IP voice

Avaya and Juniper Networks have tightened a partnership to bring security together with the next wave of enterprise telephony.

Avaya will resell Juniper security products alongside its own IP telephony gear and offer integration and support for both, the companies said last month.

Many large enterprises are phasing in IP telephony, but security is the number one concern of IT administrators and has to come into play with any deployment, says Frank Dzubeck, president of consultancy Communications Network Architects Inc., in Washington, D.C.

The Juniper-Avaya partnership is a clear competitive move against Cisco Systems Inc., which provides integrated security and IP telephony capabilities in gear such as the popular ISR platform for small and medium businesses and branch offices, says Dzubeck.
