Mitel Named a Leader in Gartner Magic Quadrant for Unified Communications

Seamlessly Enables Real-Time Communications and Collaboration to Fuel Productivity and Enhance Business Operations

OTTAWA, July 25, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE)
  • Recognized as a Leader three consecutive years for vision and execution
  • Only brand to appear in all five Magic Quadrants for business communications*
  • Mitel believes it is uniquely positioned to intersect mobile, cloud and feature-rich enterprise capabilities

Mitel® (Nasdaq:MITL) (TSX:MNW), a global leader in real-time business, cloud and mobile communications, today announced it has again attained a Leader position in the 2016 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Unified Communications, which focuses on solutions for on-premises deployment. This marks Mitel's third consecutive year in the report's Leaders quadrant.

In the report, Gartner notes: "For vendors, the stakes in the enterprise UC market are exceedingly high, because the market is mature and overall growth has slowed. As a result, vendors that do not perform well will experience negative growth and revenue losses, leading them to exit the market. The stakes for enterprise decision makers are also high, due to significant cost, visibility and business impact of their choices."
