Detron Supplies Mitel Technology to More Than 100 Dutch Government Departments
UTRECHT, Netherlands, July 9, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mitel (Nasdaq:MITL) (TSX:MNW), a leading provider of Unified Communications and Collaboration (UCC) software solutions, today announced in cooperation with its implementation partner Detron ICT & Telecom Groep (Detron), the successful completion of Proof of Delivery for VoIP solutions in association with the Dutch Government's OT2010 program. OT2010 is an eight year project which will upgrade communications systems across more than 100 Dutch Government departments, including deployment of approximately 100,000 IP ports. The completion of the Proof of Delivery follows the contract award to Detron in March, 2012.
Prior to contract finalization, Detron and Mitel were required to demonstrate their ability to meet over 300 solution criteria established by the OT2010 selection committee. Items such as telephone facilities, as well as contact center, unified communications and collaboration, unified messaging and fixed to mobile integration capabilities and service and security of the Mitel portfolio were extensively scrutinized.
The OT2010 award follows selection of Mitel IP technology for the Dutch government's previous cluster of VoIP Solutions* associated with the OT2006 program.
"We are proud of the fact that after winning the OT2006 contract, the IP technology of Mitel was chosen yet again," says Gijs Borsboom, sales director Mitel Northern Europe. "The proof of delivery was extremely extensive and complex and with our successful completion, we have again proven that our communication solutions can meet and support the requirements of government organisations now and in the future. Along with the in-depth knowledge and experience with large-scale government organisations of our implementation partner Detron, we are looking forward to a successful roll-out."
George Banken, CEO of Detron: "We worked enormously hard with Mitel to complete the proof of delivery and ensure that we responded to all of the Dutch Government's requirements. We are pleased with the positive outcome of the very thorough analysis conducted by representatives of OT2010, and we are ready to get to work for a large number of national government organisations in the Netherlands."
*The cluster VoIP solutions is one of eight OT2010 agreements that were made by the Dutch Government. Contract duration is up to eight years and the agreement outlines the delivery of IP based communication solutions and support in the set-up, implementation and servicing of the systems for the Dutch Government.
