  1. Om,
    Enterprice network is all about VOIP, which Nortel happily provided and supported.

    Basically AVAYA is milking money here. they want to buy Nortel stuff for cheap, then charge Verizon on service and upgrades.

    I remember how the split of AVAYA from Lucent was wrote as AVAYA will focus on VOIP ( lesser technology) while the mother ship Lucent was supposedly work on optical ( money cutting edge) and such.

    We know what happened after the split.

    Now back to reality , Verizon is ( was , and always) conservative , never spends that “much” money for maintaining their service.
    They might want Avaya to provide some guarantee for service after the sale.
