Vendor's DaaS offering had previously only been available in the US
Avaya has expanded its device-as-a-service (DaaS) offering out of the US for the first time, with the offering now available in Canada and "a number of European countries".
The Avaya DaaS offering is now available for Avaya IX IP Phones, the Avaya Vantage portfolio, select Avaya IX™ Conference Phones - including the recently launched Avaya IX Conference Phone B199 - and the Avaya IX Collaboration Unit.
Avaya said that these devices can be deployed on both Avaya and non-Avaya unified communcations (UC) platforms.
Hardy Myers, senior vice President of strategy and business bevelopment at Avaya, said: "We are excited to announce the availability of our Device as a Service offer to our customers in Canada and Europe.
"This announcement, along with the recently announced Avaya IX™ Subscription offer and the Avaya's OneCloud set of service offers, now enables customers to leverage an OpEx model for both their Avaya software and their Avaya devices."
Customers can contract for terms of one, three, or five years, with longer terms providing lower monthly costs.
During the term, customers can upgrade to higher priced devices without any penalty and cancellation options are also available.
