A spate of new VoIP wares set to debut this week is expected to give solution providers a new arsenal for building mobile and SMB solutions.

VoIP vendors such as Avaya, Sprint, Toshiba America Information Systems and Mitel are slated to unveil new products and services at VoiceCon Fall 2006, a San Francisco conference run by CRN publisher CMP Technology.

Sprint plans to announce new managed services based on Avaya's IP communications technology, the latest step in a partnership formed by the two companies last fall to offer hosted versions of Avaya's IP telephony and contact center applications.

The partnership is part of Avaya's overall strategy to increase channel presence around hosted VoIP offerings, said Lawrence Byrd, director of IP telephony and mobility at Avaya, Basking Ridge, N.J.

"When you work with service providers, you get their strength, their channels. It's all part of the single strategy of making the hosted choice available to our customers," Byrd said.
