CEO Kevin Kennedy Keynote to Address “Fit for Purpose Communications”

BASKING RIDGE, N.J. - Avaya, a global leader in enterprise communications systems, software and services, today announced its significant presence at Interop, Las Vegas 2010, one of the industry’s leading data networking trade events, with key events and activities to highlight the Avaya Data Solutions business unit.

Avaya president and CEO Kevin Kennedy will be featured in this year’s opening keynote session to discuss industry trends toward “Fit for Purpose Communications.” Kennedy will examine how real-time video, presence, messaging, multimodal collaboration and conferencing are making unprecedented demands on enterprise networks, and how ’Fit for Purpose’ networking and SIP-based communications technologies are setting the stage not only to reduce Total Cost of Ownership, but boost productivity and redefine the user experience -- all while laying the groundwork for tomorrow’s growth opportunities. The keynote will take place at 8:30 a.m. PT on Tuesday, April 27, 2010 at the Mandalay Bay Hotel, Las Vegas, Nevada.

Research firm IDC* expects the worldwide enterprise network market to achieve a compound annual growth rate of 7.3% over the five-year forecast period from 2009 to 2014, reaching $56.3 billion by 2014. According to IDC, increased desire for an “always on” network will continue unabated. A highly resilient, scalable, and low-latency network remains a top concern for CIOs, and customers will invest in functionality that maximize uptime while reducing the pain of downtime and increasing the speed to recovery.
