Features in the new release

New and updated developer resources:

  • Open Interfaces CCMA Web Service SDK has been updated and reissued with Avaya Aura Contact Center Release 6.1. The SDK supports new user management, skillset and configuration capabilities provided by the Open Interfaces CCMA Web service. The full set of Web service capabilities can be accessed via a choice of SOAP or REST interfaces.

Other new and enhanced features:

  • Multimedia-only installation: it is now possible to install a non-voice, multimedia-only set of Contact Center features to, for example, add multimedia capabilities to an existing voice-based contact center, such as Avaya Aura Call Center Elite.
  • Call recording support in SIP-enabled Avaya Aura Contact Centers.
  • Avaya Aura Agent Desktop support: Avaya Aura Agent Desktop connects to a new interface on the Contact Center Multimedia server. The Communication Control Toolkit pushes e-mail messages, Web requests, outbound contacts, and voice calls to the Agent Desktop, via the interface. Agents can use the Agent Desktop to receive and respond to multimedia contacts, and as a soft client for call control on voice contacts.
  • Avaya Secure Access Link (SAL) support: SAL is a remote-access architecture that provides simplified network management and increased support options for greater security, reliability and flexibility.
