Avaya’s Modular Messaging lets enterprises add new IP-based messaging capabilities while preserving current messaging infrastructure and capital investments without making changes. For Nortel PBX users, CallPilot is the unified messaging system that works through user’s desktop e-mail environments to offer Web-based unified messaging and personal mailbox management.

Avaya Communication Manager is an open, scalable, and highly reliable telephony solution that provides centralized call control for a distributed network of media gateways and a wide range of analog, digital and IP-based communication devices.
By adding fax to Avaya offerings, businesses can benefit users of Avaya Unified Communications (UC) infrastructures by enhancing productivity, streamlining operations, and lowering Total Cost of Ownership (TCO). They also can eliminate hardware dependency through software virtualization, lessen inter-company PSTN charges, reduce equipment, maintenance and operating costs due to network consolidation, and eliminate the need to maintain fax ports on PBX systems. This is critical in the context of today's stringent regulatory compliance rules and diverse requirements for integration with MFP (multifunction peripherals), ERP/CRM (enterprise resource planning/customer relationship management), virtualization and SIP (session-initiation protocol) trunking networking applications
