Mitel Simplifies Management for Unified Communications

Mitel(R), an Ottawa-based developer of unified communications and collaboration software, recently announced the worldwide availability of Mitel Communications Director (MCD) 5.0 software for medium- to large-sized enterprises.

MCD serves as the foundation of the Mitel Freedom Architecture and with the Mitel Applications Suites (MAS). It also uses a single software stream and supports a variety of different deployment models, including distributed, centralized, private cloud, public cloud, and hybrid.

MCD 5.0 offers a wide variety of new features, such as full support for large-scale hospital properties and a centralized deployment model. It also provides simplified ongoing administration and the ability to be scaled in such a manner that a single instance supports up to 2,500 users. In addition, it provides the option to deploy the software on an industry-standard server that makes use of fully redundant processors, power supplies and fans.

Ron Wellard, the executive vice president and general manager of Mitel Communications Solutions, released a short public statement about the new offering. He stated, “Through numerous conversations with our channel partners and customers, we created MCD 5.0 to deliver a host of significant design changes to more effectively address the needs of our large customer base. This new solution improves our management capabilities for both on-site administrators and channel partners, which ultimately reduces the TCO to the customer.”
