Hoping to make inroads into big businesses, Skype joined on Wednesday with Avaya, a major seller of corporate phone systems. As part of the deal, Avaya will integrate Skype into its bundle of products for customers in the United States.
In the first phase, starting in October, businesses with Internet protocol-based phone systems — which most companies have — will be able to make and receive Skype calls, known as Skype Connect. In the second phase, starting in the second half of next year, companies will also be able to use Skype instant messaging, video and a tool that shows whether users are online.
