Avaya files for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy

Telecommunications giant Avaya has filed for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy to help reduce its debt load of over 6 Billion Dollars.

Avaya has struggled over the last few years, not helped by the weak economy and increased competition. The makers of popular business telephone systems like the Avaya Partner, and the Avaya IP Office purchased the remnants of its former competitor Nortel in 2009, after Nortel filed for bankruptcy.

If Avaya is able to rebound from this bankruptcy, many believe they will come out as more of a software company, abandoning the hardware used to support more traditional small business telephone systems. Of course, this remains to be seen.

Hopefully, there will be little impact on their SMB customers. There is still plenty of new and refurbished equipment to support small-business telephone customers for some time to come.
