Upgrade Avaya G3R to S8700

Using Unity4.0(3) with PBXLink integration.

Avaya wants us to upgrade our PBX central processor from the G3R (version 11) to the newer S8700 environment, which uses redundant servers and IP switching on the back end, but leaves the front end pretty much intact as it is (same phone sets, etc).

We cannot find any Cisco documentation indicating support (or lack of support) for the S8700. We would still use the same analog port cards and cabinets.

Is Avaya S8700 integration supported with our existing PBXLink box? Is there a better/newer/faster/stronger integration method exposed by such an upgrade?

Re: Upgrade Avaya G3R to S8700

Depending on the worth of “leaves the front end pretty much intact” this _should_ be transparent to Unity and the PBXLink. However, Cisco has not done any testing with this. For any differences that do turn up and cause problems you’ll probably need to look to Avaya for support.

No issue what so ever.. I'am running s8700 servers with Multivantage 1.3 and unity as the VM and all is fine. The the PBX link box is supported, with the s8700.
