Avaya Software Investment Protection Program (ASIPP)

 

The Avaya Software Investment Protection Policy (ASIPP) for enterprises covers unified communications and contact center product licenses sold by Avaya, including those brought to Avaya as part of theNortel Enterprise Solution acquisition in December of 2009. It offers our customers specific license upgrades as they progress along our roadmap.
The Avaya Software Investment Protection Policy can be used by customers as part of an evolutionary approach that leverages the new integration releases with Avaya Aura™. For example:
  • Customers upgrading to current releases of CS 1000 can also choose to upgrade some or all of their CS 1000 licenses to Avaya Aura™ based on user needs.
It can also be used by customers looking to immediately refresh their technology. For example:
  • Customers who have an older Meridian PBX can use the policy to move to Avaya Aura™
  • Customers who have Avaya Interaction Center can use the policy to move to Avaya Aura™ Contact Center.
In a nutshell, ASIPP is a clear and consistent policy that describes how customers’ software investments will be protected for all Avaya customers; whether heritage Nortel or Avaya.
