2017 will be a big year, where Cloud telephony and messaging sales surpass premise-based revenue for the first time. Cloud-based telephony and messaging represent the most significant opportunity, with end-user investments projected to rise to $13.25 billion in 2019, according to Gartner.

CX-E from AVST is the industry leader in telephony interoperability, offering more than 400 PBX, IP-PBX and Centrex integrations. This interoperability allows you to leverage the useful life of your existing and future telephony switch.

AVST’s UC applications integrate with virtually any UC core telephony platform from vendors such as Avaya, Alcatel-Lucent, BroadSoft, Cisco, Genband, Microsoft, Mitel, NEC, ShoreTel and Unify.
