Avaya Government Solutions' first Avaya IP phones have been approved for use on U.S. Navy San Antonio-Class amphibious warships and will be installed aboard the 'John P. Murtha' (LPD-26) and the 'Portland' (LPD-27).  Raytheon Company RTN +2.99% is the systems integrator for the project. Both ships are being built at Huntington Ingalls Industries' Ingalls Shipbuilding in Pascagoula, Miss.

To clear the way for use of Avaya IP phones on LDP-class amphibious warships, Raytheon and Avaya Government Solutions conducted a "Design Verification Test" for the LPD-17 Ship Program Office (PMS 317) which confirmed that Avaya 9611G IP Phones used in conjunction with Avaya Aura Communication Manager meet the Navy's demanding redundancy, reliability and resiliency requirements for shipboard use. The phones are known for exceptionally clear audio and for the lowest power consumption in the industry, featuring a large color touch-screen display for ready access to key functions.

Avaya communications systems integrate with the Navy's tactical, mission-critical shipboard communications infrastructure and currently support command and control on more than 90 U.S. Navy combat and support ships fleet-wide.

"Avaya and our Norfolk, Va.-based U.S. Navy Shipboard team have a long history of delivering highly reliable communication systems that meet the exacting demands of the Department of Defense. We're proud to continue that tradition by teaming with Raytheon to extend IP telephony to the desktop aboard Navy warships. Now Navy personnel can take advantage of all the features and functions of an IP phone, while maintaining the highly secure and highly reliable UC capabilities that are central to their mission." -- Mike Paige, President and CEO, Avaya Government Solutions
