Avaya will present a selection of its wireless solutions for small-to-medium sized enterprises (SMEs) during the Microsoft Business Forum, a 12-city roadshow, taking place across the Middle East and the Eastern Mediterranean from this month through to January 2002. The company’s Wireless Residential Gateway 1 (RG1) and Access Point II (AP II) products will be used to manage delegate registrations during all twelve events.
“The RG 1 high-speed wireless networking system is part of Avaya’s Small Office & Home (SOHO) solution and is designed for small user groups, such as a family or a small office,” said Rifaat Al-Karmi, Avaya data specialist, Middle East and North Africa. “It allows users to share resources and access the Internet through the same user name and password without the need to re-install any additional wiring. Remote network access is facilitated by a built-in 56K modem or by an Ethernet port, which connects to broadband cable, xDSL or ISDN services.”
“Microsoft welcomes Avaya’s partnership in the Forum, which aims to show regional decision makers the clear business advantages that can be obtained by the implementation of techology, including Avaya’s offerings that will be presented during the event,” added Simon Ranson, community development manager, Microsoft Gulf and Eastern Mediterranean.
Avaya’s AP II is designed for more than 50 users, and is described by the company as a device which allows businesses to respond quickly and cost-effectively to their changing data communication needs by providing customers with quick LAN deployment and reducing the costs that are associated with enhancing corporate networks. It also possesses built-in security mechanisms including 128-Bit encryption.
