Wireless networking solutions are soaring in popularity as governments and enterprises of all sizes leverage emerging trends such as mobility, Bring-Your-Own-Device (BYOD) and the Internet of Things (IoT) to drive secure digital transformation, Avaya announced today.
Avaya has posted triple-digit growth in the past six months for its wireless networking business across Asia, Europe, the Middle East and Africa as organizations look to build secure environments capable of quickly supporting mobile users and applications. In today’s fast-paced business world, enterprises can’t afford to be constrained by wired solutions; employees need the freedom to roam freely during their work day and securely access the information they need when and where they need it.
With enterprises today under unprecedented pressure to deliver the digital experiences their customers expect, they need secure and scalable network solutions that allow teams to work together more effectively.
As evidenced by this growth, enterprises are increasingly looking to Avaya to deliver advanced, secure wireless solutions. Avaya’s wireless and unified access offering provides a streamlined, automated network that eliminates complexity by allowing users and devices to easily, automatically and securely connect at the network edge.
Supported by Avaya’s Fabric architecture it delivers a solution that can significantly ease Wi-Fi deployment and accelerate time-to-service for applications, allowing enterprises to embrace IoT and reap the benefits.
Paul Black, Director of Telecoms, Media and IOT, IDC Middle East, Turkey and Africa, says: “Many businesses in the region are at the cusp of transforming digitally. They are looking at solutions that are cost-effective, scalable and futureproof but ultimately looking at addressing their customer’s needs. The benefits of Digital Transformation will allow them to be proactive and agile to fulfil demand and is one of top initiatives of the CIO agenda with nearly 70% of industries looking to embark on transformation initiatives in 2016. Wireless connectivity solutions fit these needs perfectly and are often, fundamental to the transformation efforts itself.”
Jameel Al-Sharaf, Head of Group IT, YBA Kanoo Group, said: “In today’s challenging economic environment, having secured access to internal company resources and information wherever the employees are located will ensure higher customer retention through improved responsiveness and overall satisfaction. Secured wireless solutions will also improve the employees’ collaboration resulting in higher productivity and improved efficiency for maximizing shareholders’ value through technology.”
Maan Al-Shakarchi, Head of Networking in Europe, Middle East and Africa, and Asia-Pacific, Avaya, said: “As highlighted by our strong growth, wireless is where investments are being made. Our customers are looking to wireless networks as enablers on their digital transformation journey, and it is essential that the network help, not hinder, them. Avaya’s IoT-ready network delivers the simplicity, scalability, and, most importantly, security that our customers need to adapt to evolving market and business demands.”
