Rated 4 out of 5 by When compared to Cisco, Avaya's pricing and performance is good. Valuable Features:When compared to Cisco, Avaya's pricing and performance is good.Improvements to My Organization:As we are a solution provider and not product oriented, we give the best solution for our customers, with a good price. We are the number one company in the region, BTC, and operate in Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon, and Saudi Arabia.Use of Solution:I've got over 10 years of experience with various Avaya products. Also, I was using Nortel products prior to their acquisition by Avaya.Deployment Issues:No issues encountered.Scalability Issues:No issues encountered.Customer Service:For me, the customer satisfaction, and awareness, is the most important thing. I usually train all my clients on their chosen system.Technical Support:10/10.Previous Solutions:As we are a service provider, we offer various other products to our customer:* Astaro ASG* Avaya/Netscreen* Fortinet* HP Switches & WiFi* Juniper SSG* Juniper SRX 210 & 240* Juniper WXC* Sophos next generation SG, including RED, SG, and WiFi* Telindus Crocus E1Initial Setup:For me, the installation and setup is simple. I work hard to do the simulation for the customer, and discuss all the requirements before implementation with the client.Other Advice:Give us 10 minutes of your time, and we will show you the differences. When I do presentations, I give potential clients demo access to the solution(s) I am presenting.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SMLT allows us to create a very redundant/fault tolerant network across multiple data centers in multiple locations. They could improve upon the availability of replacement parts. Valuable Features:The key feature, that is most valuable to us, is the Split-Multi link Trunking (SMLT). This feature allows us to create a very redundant/fault tolerant network across multiple data centers in multiple locations using our own fiber runs. We have been very fortunate to have such redundancy in place saving us some major outages. This redundancy has also allowed network upgrades to have much less of an impact to the customers. Also, the different interfaces provided with various modules have allowed us to migrate from one technology to another in various areas of our network without a complete overhaul, but in stages.Another feature it has, is that the platform has changed both in software and hardware over the years. They have done it with new technology, features, and capacity, by simply upgrading/adding newer modules to adapt to our ever changing and growing network needs.Improvements to My Organization:It has worked extremely well in our environment, and grown with us as our needs have grown over the years. Two ERS8800’s make up our core with another two in an aggregation layer servicing our customer segments.The redundancy gained by utilizing SMLT has proven itself invaluable during a couple of events that could have been devastating to our bottom line. We experienced a major fiber cut between two data centers, and, although it affected several of our uplinks, the redundancy automatically kept our production network running, and the customers were unaffected as business went on as usual from their perspective. This redundancy also allowed us to move one of our data centers from one location to another without disrupting production and allowing us to make several of the migrations during work hours.Room for Improvement:They could improve in supplying pricing to the VAR in a more timely manner. They could also improve upon the availability of replacement parts within the given maintenance agreement time.Use of Solution:We have used this solution through its continuous progression/maturity for nearly 15 years. Currently - Ethernet Routing Switch 8600/8800, running version Issues:We have been using the ERS 8600/8800’s now for quite a while and they have been quite stable.Scalability Issues:At this point, the ERS’ have scaled well with our growing environment, as we started with 100M and have since upgraded various links to 10G. Avaya has quite a few different modules to choose from, and these are based on the interfaces required for your specific needs. It’s up to us to realize where we are, and where our goals are taking us, to choose the right module for growth and scalability.Technical Support:Overall, their technical support is very good with qualified engineers who have good product knowledge, troubleshooting and communication skills. As with most technical support areas, once in a while they are unable to help as well as we would like and it feels we educate them more than they help us. However, perhaps this is because we have a veteran group of intelligent people on our staff.Previous Solutions:We were initially a Token Ring shop, with Synoptics equipment, which changed to Bay Networks and then Nortel Networks. We had to go through the pains and tribulations of ATM to migrate from our Token Ring to Ethernet. As we began to migrate onto virtual LANs, we implemented the ERS8600s which have suited us very well through the years.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.
