How to List Avaya Licenses

By David Curtis

Avaya is a global leader in communications systems. Avaya recently acquired Northern Telecom and now has approximately 20,000 employees worldwide. To list Right to Use licenses on an Avaya phone system, the Avaya Site Administration application must be loaded and configured on a PC. This software application connects with the phone system over a network LAN interface and allows configuration, data listing, monitoring, reporting and testing on the system. A user name and password must be active on the Avaya Communication Manager phone system.
