North American distributor of networking and IP telephony products, Jenne, has signed a distribution deal with Avaya (NYSE:AV)  to offer midsize business solutions to its network of value-added resellers and dealers. The mid-market solutions will be based on the Avaya Communications Manager IP telephony software platform. Jenne will provide training and service support to its resellers.
