The SVC-based routing is enabled on Avaya's Aura Conferencing and Flare UC platforms and will be compatible with other communications platforms, including from LifeSize and Polycom, as well as Microsoft Lync, IBM Sametime and Salesforce.com.
Radvision's Scopia also has a new Android application, which allows video conferencing from mobile devices. Avaya also released a box named the Scopia XT5000, which is aimed at providing room-based video conferencing to the mid-market.
The Aura Conferencing costs $190 per user with the Flare Experience, or $140 for just the web clients. The XT5000 starts at $10,500 and ranges up to $22,500.
