Default Avaya/Scopia client availability for Linux

Hello,

We are a NGO involved in Human Rights, located in Paris, with premises in NYC, Brussels, Tunis, Geneva, The Hague and other places throughout the world. We have installed 1 Radvision XT4200 in our headquarters and 2 XT240 in Brussels and Geneva.

The system as a whole works fine, except that we cannot use it widely, because all our staff computers mainly use Ubuntu OS. The Radvision/Avaya system works perfectly between the XT2400 and the XT240s, but as soon as we have to connect with offices without a dedicated system, it's a mess. Our users do prefer to elaborate their visio conferences with Skype, which annoys us a lot in the IT department !

I have tried many hacks in order to use the Avaya/Scopia conference client onto our Ubuntu systems, but none works. Among the hacks I have tested, the 2 tracks I have followed are :

1. try to install the ClientInst.exe (version 8.30) and ScopiaDesktopLauncher.exe (version 1.5.3) with Wine; blocked with many errors, none of the different versions of Wine have worked as expected

2. try to use ChromeApps and the Android AVAYA/Scopia app re-compiled for Chrome; no success

I have heard about the fact that AVAYA development team was working on a web-rtc solution, which could be used with any web browser on any OS, and which could use our existent XT2400 and XT240 systems.

Is anybody in a position to provide me with more information ? Is there a test platform, or a pre-release which I could evaluate ? Are there any other solutions which could allow us to use our equipment together with our Ubuntu clients ?

This is urgent now, as many of our staff are showing decreasing interest in the AVAYA/Scopia solution, and requires from us more and more Skype or other web-rtc solutions (Hello, OpenTok, appear.in, etc.).

I thank you very much for reading me, and hope someone can provide me with relevant answers.

Regards,
Cyril
