Mitel First to Deliver Virtualised Real-Time Communications Applications Based on VMware vSphere 4

Mitel, the trusted provider of unified communications solutions, announces Mitel business communications applications as VMware Ready, leveraging technology designed for VMware vSphere 4. The latency challenge of virtualising voice has also been solved with Mitel Communications Director (MCD) software, the first real-time voice application designed for the VMware vSphere 4 platform.

These developments come after the two companies announced their strategic relationship in June 2009, with the intent to develop Mitel real-time voice applications that run on VMware vSphere 4.   Mitel has the following unified communications applications that are now VMware Ready and available to customers.

They include:
o     Mitel Unified Communicator Advanced

o     Mitel Contact Center Solutions

o     Mitel Enterprise Manager

Mitel’s software approach offers organisations choice and flexibility in deploying unified communications solutions from the data center, with the ability to run Mitel’s call control and applications on industry-standard servers in a VMware environment.

The Mitel solution leverages the VMware platform to enable organisations of all sizes to build internal clouds that transform IT into a dynamic and flexible service. This allows organisations to improve efficiency, control and choice within their infrastructures, while dramatically lowering capital and operating costs.

The solution maximises hardware utilisation, simplifies application management, enhances application performance, and makes it easier to achieve IT business continuity objectives.

Mitel MCD on VMware will be available Q1 2010.
