    IP Office does not support video call controls over CTI.

  • The Avaya Workplace Client accesses Workplace Meetings Online using HTTPS, from within the Workplace Meetings tab of the client. The Avaya Workplace Client can access local on-premise Equinox Conferencing in the same way using HTTPS, that is, if the access URL is configured under Workplace Meetings. However, if the Avaya Workplace Client accesses local on-premise Equinox Conferencing through SIP trunks, audio and video will be available but not sharing or conference roster. The same applies for accessing Scopia over SIP trunks too. Even when Avaya Workplace Client accesses local on-premise IP Office Meet Me Conferencing, audio will be available but not sharing or conference roster.

  • Apple Push Notification service (APNs) is a platform notification service created by Apple Inc. This service allows iOS users of Avaya Workplace Client to receive notification of new calls, voicemail messages, and other events. They receive these notifications regardless when the Avaya Workplace Client is idle in the background or is in quit state. However, if Avaya Workplace Client is on suspension, then Avaya Workplace Client automatically starts when a new call or instant message notification arrives.

    Unlike the rest of the world, due to the restriction of CallKit in Chinese applications, Avaya Workplace Client does not display incoming call screen using CallKit. However, an incoming call notification is displayed.
