Avaya is known as a leader in helping organizations around

the world succeed by integrating communications with

business strategy and operations.

In fact, Avaya came about as an independent company

so it could bring even more focus to innovating

in business communications.

In 1995, the company that would become Avaya was part of

Lucent Technologies. Before that it had been part of AT&T.

No matter its corporate parent, the employees were dedicated

to understanding how communications

could be a management tool, getting better and changing

as business changed.

In 2000, Lucent's management decided to spin off this business, which was then known as its enterprise communications group. The objective was to give the people who knew the business best the flexibility and focus to accelerate innovation and improve operations.
