"Avaya customers rely on NetIQ's management expertise to support their integrated communications platform, ensure the best voice quality and improve the end-user quality of experience," said Erin Anderson, product marketing manager at NetIQ. "Achieving Avaya compliance further displays our dedication to supporting process and standards-based platforms that can help customers easily incorporate new technology and optimize the value of their IT telephony and unified communications investments."

As a Gold member of the program, NetIQ is eligible to submit products for compatibility testing by the Avaya Solution Interoperability and Test Lab in Lincroft, N.J.
