Avaya Tuesday announced the availability of Avaya Flare Communicator for iPad tablets, which provides mobile workers with secure, next-generation unified communications and collaboration capabilities over both Wi-fi and 3G networks.

The product is enabled by the Avaya Aura unified communications architecture. The architecture delivers integrated applications to a broad range of fixed and mobile devices.

Avaya Flare Communicator provides employees and their companies with the ability to view the availability of enterprise associates from the contacts card; tap a single location to launch an instant message, a voice call, or e-mail; manage two simultaneous voice calls using the iPad while mobile; multitask on the iPad tablet while communicating; conference call and IM, or use other productivity applications; and attend a Web conference and use the iPad browser; engage in secure communication and collaboration remotely using Wi-Fi hotspots or 3G connectivity; and reduce mobile expenses by using the data channel and avoiding roaming charges while traveling across different cell networks.

Avaya Flare Communicator is available as a free download from the Apple App Store. Businesses with Avaya Aura 6.1 or later can obtain up to 50 Avaya Aura client access licenses at no cost to connect users to Flare Communicator during an introductory offer from January 24 through April 30. Customers with Avaya Aura 6.1+ can also take advantage of a new Executive User Add-on promotion that enables power mobile collaborators to have consistent access to all of their real-time communications as their day-to-day needs change. The promotion offers 60 percent savings on the regular United States list price and includes Avaya Aura, Avaya Aura Conferencing, Avaya Flare Experience on the Avaya Desktop Video Device, Avaya Flare Communicator for iPad, and services. The promotion is available from February 6 through September 30.

Finally, for businesses that want to provide advanced mobile collaboration capabilities on older or other vendor systems, the Avaya Mobile Collaboration Pack is a turnkey mobile solution package that includes Avaya Aura, Avaya Flare Communicator for iPad for 50 users, Avaya one-X Mobile for 50 users, plus implementation and training, along with one-year support and upgrade subscription. Additional consumer devices and operating systems will be supported later this year.
