IP Office

IP Office Release 7.0

A phone system designed for small and medium businesses, Avaya IP Office offers powerful capabilities to help employees communicate more effectively with customers, vendors, and each other. Combining advanced, big business functionality with the ease of use and simplified management that small businesses require, IP Office helps small businesses use communications to differentiate them from their competition.

With Release 7.0, new Digital Station modules will be available supporting select Nortel digital telephones. The new DS modules will support RJ21 connectors on the telephone station side. Enhanced support for select Nortel IP telephones will be available with Release 7.0.

IP Office Platform

IP Office is a modular communications solution that scales from 2 to 384 extensions on a single platform. IP Office supports up to 32 sites and 1000 users in a multi-site network with resilient and redundant capabilities. It provides a hybrid PBX with both Time Division Multiplexing (TDM) and IP telephone and trunk support that can be used in either mode or both concurrently. IP Office has data capabilities built in, providing IP routing, switching and firewall protection between LAN and WAN (LAN2). IP Office has a web based applications suite that delivers contact center reporting, voice and email messaging, Interactive Voice Response, conferencing and computer telephony integration.

IP Office solutions are built from hardware units and application software. Hardware provides the connectivity for voice and data circuits and processor units for the solution software. Each IP Office solution will require a system control unit (IP500 V2), trunk connections to service provider, and expansion modules for TDM telephone cabling. IP Telephones connect over LAN connections to the IP Office solution.

IP Office Advanced Edition
IP Office Advanced Edition enables growing businesses to take advantage of Avaya’s industry-leading contact center expertise. For small to medium businesses that want to differentiate themselves through exceptional customer service, Advanced Edition provides customer service reps and their supervisors with the tools to effectively handle call volumes and gather and report valuable customer intelligence to help increase sales and agent productivity.

Building on the IP Office Preferred Edition (required pre-requisite), Advanced Edition helps businesses take customer service to a higher level.


  • View agent status – Customer service reps and supervisors can get real-time information on call queues, hold times, agent status and more, to help ensure customers are always being served quickly, efficiently and professionally.
  • Assess agent productivity – Customer service supervisors can gather current and historic data and generate reports to gauge the productivity and performance of agents. The intuitive browser-based interface offers drag-and-drop simplicity, making it easy to configure, generate and deliver customized reports that can be acted upon quickly.
  • Manage campaign performance – Growing businesses can get real-time insights into how marketing campaigns are performing so resources can be adjusted if necessary to maximize on the investment. Capture information such as telephone number and area where responders are calling from (among other data) that can help streamline costs and boost campaign-generated revenue.
  • Selectively retrieve recorded calls – Call recording can positively impact customer service and revenue and it also enables more meaningful training sessions. Calls can be easily and securely retrieved from any PC by searching on any number of fields such as date, time and extension number, and archived to a storage device such as DVD.
  • Automate popular inquiries – Free up valuable time for customer service reps by providing customers with easy-to-use caller menus for fast and efficient responses to commonly-asked questions. Callers can respond with touch-tone or voice response (or both). Create customized surveys. Retrieve information the same way voicemail messages are replayed.
  • Create self service menus – Improve responsiveness to customers and continue generating revenue even outside of normal business hours. Customized, automated self-help menus allow customers to place or change orders, check status of shipments, and more.


  • Measure and track customer service – Real time and historical call statistics gives your business insight into how well you are serving your customers
  • Quicker response to service issues – Simple to use management tools enable you to react to and change routing rules, agent assignments or service capacity on demand

  • Discover new opportunities – Leverage your customer recordings for first-hand information on what your customers want. Confidently create new offers or enhance existing ones to boost your revenue stream and expand market presence
  • Address individual agent needs – Quality checks (through call recordings) can reveal both positive and negative agent performance. This will enable you to correct or reward accordingly
