Agreement With Landata Expands Mitel Presence in Russia & Eastern Europe

October 21, 2011

Mitel (Nasdaq:MITL), a leading provider of Unified Communications (UC) software solutions, today announced that Landata, a business division of Systematic-Group and a leading IT/Telco distributor in Russia, has added Mitel's UC solutions to its portfolio. This will broaden Landata's commercial and technology offering to resellers as well as expand the availability of Mitel solutions in Russia, the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) and Eastern Europe. Mitel believes its Freedom Architecture, an open model for UC based on a single, cloud-ready software stream, is well-suited for these markets as it delivers advanced communications functionality combined with the ability to leverage industry-standard servers alongside existing infrastructure.

"We're very excited to continue our growth in these important markets with Landata," said Graham Bevington, vice president, International Markets, Mitel. "Taking our Freedom architecture to Russia, the CIS and Eastern Europe speaks to our recognition of the potential growth of these markets. Landata, with its far-reaching and sophisticated network of channel partners, is well situated to help Mitel expand our footprint in these burgeoning areas and reinforce our channel-centric strategy for growth."

Alex Volynsky, who heads up a newly established representative office in Moscow which sells and supports Mitel's portfolio under license, integrated with added-value applications from Wesley Clover International Corporation, commented on the announcement, "This agreement brings together a suite of complementary products for businesses looking to unify communications across multiple platforms and locations, with a large, established network of resellers. In addition, Landata resellers can work to achieve Mitel PARTNERprogram certification via access to Mitel sales and technical training, as well as benefiting from Mitel and Landata marketing programs."

Vasiliy Selyuminov, Executive Director, Landata said about the announcement, "Landata prides itself on pioneering and delivering new solutions with a high level of expertise and professionalism. Our resellers and distribution network has been looking for a proven IP-based unified communications solution for some time, the Mitel portfolio allows us to offer them just that."
