Mitel (MITL) Receives Competitive Local Exchange Carrier Certification Across U.S. For Delivering Cloud-Based Unified Communications Services, Updates AnyWare Platform For Mobility Support

|Includes: Mitel Networks Corporation (MITL)

Today, Mitel, long established provider of Unified Communications and Collaboration (NYSEARCA:UCC) software solutions to a globally connected planet, announced that its US-based Communications Service Provider Division, Mitel NetSolutions (which offers cloud-based UCC services throughout the U.S.) has received CLEC certification (Competitive Local Exchange Carrier) in all 50 states and the District of Columbia.

This certification to deliver cloud-based UCC services anywhere in the U.S. dovetails with the company's AnyWare hosted cloud-based communications service, featuring new and important updates that offer deep integration with mobile platforms. This rich feature set gives small enterprises a powerful tool to execute on tasks with full leveraging of their mobile workforce, driving productivity to new heights.

AnyWare can now interexchange multiple user types/usage profiles with the range of other telephony portfolio products offered by MITL in order to custom-fit the solution set to exact customer requirements. Additionally AnyWare provides such complete integration with mobile wireless that users can now merge their office and mobile into one phone number, as well as single voicemail notification to desktop phone/mobile (when paired with Mitel Mobile service from NetSolutions).

A seamless meshing of initiatives that places MITL in a select class of providers, this means that the company may now serve as a single-point provider of full-spectrum, enterprise-class UCC communications via cloud to small businesses, irrespective of office structure/distribution. Now small enterprises have all the power of enterprise-class UCC in an extremely flexible, scalable package that can run anywhere, driving efficiencies across the board. From reduced customer equipment cost to the overall robustness of the implementation, this solution has multiple other benefits. The cloud-based approach means that high-value data redundancy and disaster recovery concerns (should something occur) are also met exceptionally well.

President Mitel NetSolutions, Jon Brinton, explained that businesses nationwide could now simply access a cloud-based deployment of the company's UCC applications suite on a friendly, pay-as-you-go basis for maximum communications productivity. A comprehensive array of products/services ranging from traditional communications service provider offerings (Primary Rate Interfaces for example) to cutting-edge SIP trunking solutions (VoIP and streaming media based on Session Initiation Protocol) is now available anywhere in the US for savvy businesses looking to punch well above their fighting weight.

Mitel AnyWare offers an all-inclusive monthly per-user subscription fee and really can be a communications silver bullet for many thriving small businesses where the volume of activity is immense. AnyWare is exactly the sort of offering that today's dynamic work environments require and that more and more business in the U.S. are moving towards, as the overall cost of operation is reduced significantly by shedding outdated communications infrastructure.
