"Mitel's MiVoice MX-ONE platform has allowed San Diego State University (SDSU) to protect their telecom investment over the last 20+ years while moving to a platform that can provide the latest unified communications and collaboration (UCC) technologies and capabilities. The addition of Mitel's MiCollab to the MX-ONE portfolio will enable us to provide UC, mobility and video capabilities to our users beginning in 2016," said Riny Ledgerwood, director of Communications, ETS Voice Services, SDSU.

"Customers today are increasingly looking for vendors to simplify their communications solutions and to remove the seams that have previously resulted in siloed, separate and proprietary systems that have trapped them," said Rich McBee, president and CEO of Mitel. "We feel being recognized as the only vendor to appear in five critical Gartner Magic Quadrant reports is a testament to the strength of the Mitel portfolio and our unique ability to offer customers the full suite of business communications solutions they require."
