On September 15, 2010 Avaya announced the general availability of Business Communications Manager (BCM) Release 6.0 software. BCM 6.0 will be available on the BCM50 and BCM450 platforms and introduce enhanced unified communications capabilities and provide new teleworking solutions.

Without going very deep into the technical details, I wanted to let you know about some of the enhancements that will be coming your way. If you have questions about any specifics, I would be more than happy to help you.
