capacity and scalability are quite suitable for financial institutions with
many customers like Bank SinoPac," said Robert Tsai, Senior Vice President of
Information Technology Division, Bank SinoPac.  "The new Avaya platform that
has been established in our headquarters office building can easily be
extended to all of our branches in Taiwan."

including audio conferencing, mobility and more.  The bank plans to extend the
network to 36,000 users at 250 remote sites.

network using any IP phone and always have the same extension and
communications features, thus improving mobility and simplify back office
