The Defense Department has approved the latest release of Avaya’s Aura Application Server, the company announced Monday.
The AS 5300, the server’s third update, can now be used in the Defense Switched Network, the agency’s system for delivering data and communications services worldwide.
Steve Derr, vice president and chief technology officer at Avaya Government Solutions, said the company will upgrade the Defense Switched Network to support new collaborative communication applications.
Some of AS 5300’s new features include new mobility tools, instant messaging, presence and collaboration tools, and new routing capabilities.
The AS 5300 has been approved as a WAN Soft Switch, containing a local session controller for base-level communications.
