Official statement.

Our company uses Avaya IP phones. It would cost us a lot (six figures) to replace the entire system. I planned an OS upgrade on the IP 500 servers next month. I don't know if it's worth it now.

Their phones show up at half price on eBay.

I hope someone will buy their phone hardware division and keep supporting them, but I doubt it.

When Nortel went under, same thing happened; a lot of customers got burnt. It was a great company that went off-track in the last few years of its existence.

Avaya was badly managed from the beginning, surviving only because of their near monopoly position. Not surprised this has happened, only that it took so long.

Feel bad for you, though, Coug.

We are also heavily invested in Avaya. My hope its that they come out of chapter 11 more healthy. At least it's not chapter 7.
