Avaya has enhanced its capabilities to monitor, assess and automatically adjust the network environment to optimize data traffic flow for VoIP.
Avaya, Inc announced its acquisition of substantially all of the assets of RouteScience Technologies, Inc., a maker of adaptive networking software (ANS) for enterprises and service providers. Based in California, most of RouteScience’s employees have now joined Avaya.
RouteScience’s adaptive networking software helps companies monitor and manage VoIP and other latency-sensitive traffic over wide area networks. The acquisition expands Avaya’s network management offerings and enhances its software development team in application-based network assessment, monitoring and intelligent route adjustment.
Based on open industry standards, RouteScience solutions can operate with technology from a wide variety of vendors, and work with data routers from multiple vendors. Avaya will continue to support RouteScience customers and offer ANS, while using RouteScience technology to expand the choices available to customers for enhancing reliability when connecting branch offices using VoIP.
Avaya, an early 21st-century spinoff from Lucent Technologies, Inc, designs, builds and manages communications networks for more than 1 million businesses worldwide, including over 90 percent of the FORTUNE 500.
