May 19, 2010

Mitel(R) (NASDAQ:MITL), a trusted provider of unified communications software solutions, today announced it is an official partner of TV Festival de Cannes taking place May 12 - 23, 2010. Mitel will be providing a unified communications solution for the TV station's team, the festival's press room, and the palace's VIP room.

Stations will be installed on location to provide communications access during the festival period. The flexibility of the Mitel IP phones equipped with the Mitel Wireless LAN Stands allow them to be connected through a wireless interface minimizing the requirement for fixed network wiring which significantly reduces the logistical burden of installation and makes it an ideal solution for such short-term events.

Participating in such an event requires very high standards: the solutions employed needs to be of exceptional quality and reliability and they need to be easy to install and use. Our offer meets these criteria," said Lionel Hovsepian, European sales director, Mitel.
