The S8800 series common server is a processing platform that is ready to support Avaya Aura® communications solutions for midsized and large enterprises, today and in the future. The Avaya S8800 Server leverages Intel’s latest Xeon E5500 series (Nehalem) processor technology, and is available in both 1U and 2U form factors. Most Avaya applications will use the S8800 1U server chassis; some applications that require a large number of hard disk drives and/or plug-in cards will use the 2U version of Avaya S8800 Server.
Designed to support distributed IP for mid-sized and large businesses, this server offers powerful reliability features: It can be configured as a Local Survivable Processor (LSP), allowing it to act as a higher capacity LSP for larger remote sites of a distributed enterprise. It provides enterprise survivability, similar to ESS, allowing it to serve as a regional survivable server for multiple H.248 gateways. It Includes a RAM Disk, so it can operate even in the event of a disk failure. The S8510 Server running Communication Manager allows for a distributed enterprise over an IP infrastructure, ideal for the midsize or large business (up to 3,200 ports).
The S8300 Server with a G700, G450,G350 or G250 Media Gateway provides a flexible solution for growing companies to streamline voice and data operations over one networked infrastructure. It can be a standalone solution for a small business or a remote edge device for a larger enterprise network with 8 to 1000 stations.
Developed for mid- to large branch offices and medium sized standalone businesses, this gateway can be configured with an S8300 Server blade or S8500 Server to serve standalone or small campus environments. It consists of a 3U high rack-mountable chassis with a field-removable Supervisor Main Board Module, Power Supplies, Fan Tray, DSP resources and memory, along with eight Media Module slots to support T1/E1, ISDN-BRI, WAN interfaces, digital or analog telephones, and analog trunks.
Designed as the complementary gateway for S8500/S8700/10/20-based media servers, the G650 offers the features, scalability, and system uptime that enterprises require for mission-critical telephony. Its 8U high, 14-slot rack-mountable chassis can accommodate a range of analog, digital, ISDN, and IP (over the LAN) phone station configurations, with voice transport options over IP, analog, TDM, or ATM. Available dual redundant, load-sharing power supplies provide enhanced reliability.
