DevConnect Compliance Tests provide Avaya customers with a higher level of comfort in the interoperability between DevConnect Member solutions and Avaya products. Through a jointly developed test plan, DevConnect Technology Partners and Testing-enabled Registered Members work with DevConnect engineers to assess the interoperability of both member and Avaya products.
Upon successful test completion, Avaya will publish one or more DevConnect Application Notes to assist Avaya support personnel, channel partners and customers in configuring and deploying these interoperable products.
DevConnect Technology Partners can also receive additional marketing benefits, including use of DevConnect compliance marks in their collateral, and promotion to Avaya channels and customers of their interoperable solutions through the Avaya DevConnect Innovations Guide.

SIP Trunk Interoperability Testing
DevConnect provides compliance testing of SIP trunk services from Service Providers around the globe against Avaya Aura, IP Office and other Avaya solutions in line with specific reference architectures using the Avaya Aura Session Border Controller for Enterprises (ASBCE) in most, if not all, configurations. The document below describes these reference architectures, and any limitations regarding the inclusion of third-party Session Border Controllers in our test lab configurations:
Avaya IP Office Compliance Testing
When considering compliance testing with an Avaya IP Office platform, developers and SIP Trunk Service Providers should review the additional information available about Compliance Testing with Avaya IP Office. Specific details covered include:
- Selecting an Avaya IP Office platform for compliance testing
- Testbed configuration and compliance test coverage
- Applicability of compliance testing to other IP Office platforms and configurations, including Powered by Avaya IP Office
Acoustic Headset Testing
In addition to regular DevConnect Compliance Testing, Technology Partners with headsets that are compatible with the 96x1 Series SIP deskphones may submit their headsets for Acoustic Headset Testing. Testing identifies which of the deskphones' acoustic headset profiles the headset should use to provide the optimal acoustic performance. For more information, see Avaya IP Deskphones Compliance Testing.

Interoperability & Application Notes
DevConnect provides members, customers and channels with different types of compliance information:
DevConnect Application Notes are developed in conjunction with DevConnect members to demonstrate proven interoperability between a members' application and Avaya products, using Avaya APIs and open standards.
Interoperability Notes, developed by the Avaya Solution and Interoperability Test Lab, describe how Avaya products and solutions should be configured to optimize performance and interoperability against a variety of network infrastructures, including Cisco networking gear.
Nortel Compatibility Certificates were provided to companies who tested products under the former Nortel Enterprise Developer program. These certificates represent that a similar level of testing was successfully completed by the member for the solutions and systems under test as described in the certificate. In some cases, additional documentation including test results or configuration information may be provided. No new Nortel Compatibility Certificates have been issued as of 1 Jan 2010.
