Avaya is new owner but Konftel remains
On 4 January a lot of people were completely thrown by the acquisition by Avaya. The press release stated clearly that Avaya's intention was to gain access to the world-leading audio technology OmniSound® and Konftel's product portfolio for Avaya's solutions.
The Konftel company is now a subsidiary of Avaya. The Konftel brand remains, and we will continue to develop and sell conference phones using the same staff for Konftel's distribution channels around the globe. We will also be continuing our collaborations with Alcatel-Lucent and Snom, as well as our partnerships with Siemens and Alcatel-Lucent. Business as usual.

During Q2 of 2011, Avaya-branded conference telephones will become available through Avaya's distribution channels.
