Avaya drops wireless headsets

Plantronics will still sell models under its own label

Avaya, which promotes itself as a software company, is trimming back even more on its line of hardware with the elimination of wireless headsets to go with its unified communications infrastructure.

Nortel purchase to test Avaya big time

The company says it will no longer sell the headsets that it bought from Plantronics and slapped an Avaya label on them.

Instead Avaya will recommend to customers that they purchase headsets made by other vendors whose gear meets certifications set by its DevConnect program for partners. Plantronics is the only headset provider to gain a DevConnect platinum level status.

The affected headsets are Avaya's AWH-55+, AWH75N, AH450/A, AH450/N, AH450, AW450/N and AH460/N. Plantronics says it will continue to sell these models under its own label and model numbering system.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.
