As of April 2019, Avaya is officially ending the support for the release 7.6 and prior versions of the CS1000 platform. What are your options if you’re looking for a replacement for the CS1000?
WHAT DOES IT MEAN:
In short, this means that Avaya will no longer continue to develop the software or product the parts. With Nortel PBXs being widely deployed across a range of organisations, the end of support for the CS1000M harware is quite significant as these systems can very easily fall out of service.
Failure to upgrade your telephone software could be risking your business much more than you think.
WHEN WILL THE SUPPORT END:
The support for the CS1000 series set will end in April 2019. For customers with the CS1000M, plans to replace the CS1000M need to start today to be ready for the transition.
WHAT ARE MY REPLACEMENT OPTIONS:
Replacing an on-premises system like Avaya’s CS1000 can take a significant amount of effort and investment. Here at 4Sight we have an alternative to keeping on the same old platform and having a costly upgrade. For any organisation looking to replace the CS1000, MiVoice Business provides robust functionality and a smooth transition for Avaya CS1000 users.
NEED HELP MIGRATING?
Transitions are never easy, but with the right partner, your transition can run as smoothly as possible. And transitions like this can be a great opportunity to take stock of your communications infrastructure and strategic plan. Look for communications partners who are willing to work with the investment you’ve already made into your system, and who can operate with your existing ethernet and non-ethernet phone lines to deliver the features of an IP phone no matter what infrastructure you’re starting with.
