New Release of Unified Communications from Mitel

Updated: January 07, 2011

Unified Communications solutions and managed services provider Mitel has recently released a new version of its UC platform. The new version, called UC Advanced 3.1, features web and mobile portal improvements and a new dynamic location client application for Blackberry smartphones.

These new portals allow UC users to access the UC system remotely without being tethered to the PC client while still letting users view corporate contacts, view user and device presence information, view call history and voice mail message details, and download and play voice mail messages, all from the web browser.

Mitel is also offering UC Advanced as a server appliance pre-installed with Mitel Standard Linux – a good deal for business customers, who can obtain an easily deployed solution for much lower overhead costs. Stephen Beamish, Mitel's VP of Marketing and Business Development, says that the new UC version meets “the growing need for innovative collaboration solutions” and that sales of UC Advanced 3.1 so far “prove once again that Mitel has solved the problem of what enterprises need and...show how Mitel leads the way in innovation and feature richness.”
