SANTA CLARA, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Avaya Holdings Corp. (NYSE:AVYA), a global leader in solutions to enhance and simplify communications and collaboration, today announced a resale agreement with NVT Phybridge to provide its Long Reach, Single Pair PoE switches for IP Modernization as part of Avaya’s unified communications portfolio.

NVT Phybridge is a global leader in long reach PoE (Power over Ethernet), making long distance IP connections simple, secure, and cost-effective. Its series of long reach switches enable customers to modernize to an IP-based network, transforming existing or new infrastructure into an IP path with power. NVT Phybridge long reach PoE switches are proven to help customers save money, eliminate risk and disruption, and create a robust and highly secure network platform; eliminating infrastructure barriers that keep customers stuck on TDM. This is especially important for large enterprises like hospitals, universities, government installations, hotels and others looking to accelerate their digital transformation with new unified communications solutions that would have previously required them to rip and replace existing network and telephony cabling. Now organizations can transform their existing and proven voice infrastructure into an IP backbone without the disruption or the increased costs.
