The U.S. Navy has approved Avaya‘s Internet Protocol phones for use onboard two amphibious transport dock ships under a systems integration project led by Raytheon (NYSE: RTN).

Both companies carried out a design verification test of the Avaya 9611G IP Phones in order to meet the Navy’s redundancy, reliability and resiliency requirements for ship-based use, Avaya said Wednesday.

The LPD-17 ship program office oversaw the exercise to verify how the phones function with Avaya’s Aura Communication Manager tool.

The phones will be installed on the USS John P. Murtha and Portland ships.

More than 90 Navy combat and support ships use Avaya’s communication systems for tactical, shipboard communications infrastructure and for support command and control functions.
