Earlier this year Avaya announced that it was ending the support and sale of IP Office Telephone Systems running pre 10 software. The announcement had potential significant licensing hard hardware implications for most IP Office users. West Pier were quick to act on this announcement and we contacted our customers running pre 10 software and explained their options to them (including the Avaya led upgrade offer on a R11 upgrade licence). West Pier are delighted to have recently upgraded 50% of thier IP Office customer base to Release 11. West Pier have extensive knowledge and experience of upgrading IP Office systems and of R11 software as a number of clients already use release 11 in on premise and cloud-based solutions.  These clients now have peace of mind that their system is fully supported they can purchase licences to add capacity and have access to the new release 11 features including Avaya’s Equinox Unified Communications application.
