Peribit has joined forces with Avaya in a move which will enable enterprise customers to deploy VoIP over existing WAN infrastructure without the need for network upgrades.
Peribit is the 10th Australian Avaya DevConnect partner in the IP space.
The Avaya DevConnect partnership program enables suitably aligned application developers and system integrators to undergo interoperability/compliance testing with Avaya and then share in sales and marketing force.
Through the partnership, Peribit's Sequence Reducer WAN optimisation platforms will interoperate seamlessly with specific versions of Avaya's IP telephony products, including media servers, media gateways and IP telephones.
Peribit Networks South Pacific Regional manager, Michael Paul, said the Peribit solution worked, ideally, for enterprises that wanted to deploy VoIP without increasing overall ownership costs or bandwidth.
"WAN bandwidth is still the second largest expense for all of our customers, and simply adding more doesn't make WAN links voice friendly," Paul said. "VoIP suffers from other WAN issues such as latency and application contention."
Peribit architecture includes compression, sequence caching, latency reduction, bandwidth management, path optimisation and visibility technologies to counter these issues.
The four-year old company which landed in Australia in February last year now has more than 70 local customers, including the Commonwealth Bank, National Australia Bank, Dell and The Australian Red Cross.
Of these local customers, about 30 per cent have deployed or are deploying VoIP, according to Paul.
"We see VoIP as a major [and growing] access point for Peribit market penetration both locally and globally," he said.
