What are your options?
The affected software versions include: Release 6, Release 7, Release 8, Release 9.0 & Release 9.1.
A: Do nothing - Business risk high
Hardware running pre-R10
software is currently not supported by Avaya, leaving you vulnerable. Licensing is now also unavailable.
B: Buy licences at current software version now for future requirements - High business risk
You will be purchasing licences that you may never use. You will not be able to buy any more licences for the system and you are currently not eligible for support
from Avaya if there is an issue with your system.
C: Buy an upgrade licence - Low business risk
You can buy an upgrade licence and have the system upgraded to the latest or supported level of software.
An upgrade licence is a relatively inexpensive way to bring your entire system up to the latest software version and gain new features by doing so.
Upgrade licence costs:
- £441.00 for systems (Voicemail PRO and advanced software applications)
- £266.00 for systems (Voicemail and basic telephony)
