The Mitel Communications Suite can be deployed as a standalone unified communications system for business or as a key component of the combined Mitel/Sun thin client solution. It delivers a converged and simplified user experience that combines Sun's desktop virtualization for computing with Mitel's IP telephony applications.

"Mitel has proven they are committed to quality and excellence while addressing real needs in the marketplace," said Rich Tehrani, TMC president and editor-in-chief of INTERNET TELEPHONY magazine. "We're proud to honor their accomplishments in the advancement of IP communications and look forward to more innovative solutions from them in the future."

"In a cost-conscious world, Mitel Communications Suite allows IT departments to implement and manage their unified communications environment on standard servers," said Stephen Beamish, Mitel's vice president of business development and strategic alliances. "The seamless integration of applications and servers enables the vision of communications as a software-only service delivered from the data center. Customers around the world are realizing the ROI benefits of our combined solution."

The Mitel Communications Suite combines with the Mitel Unified IP Client for Sun Ray™ to provide unprecedented flexibility and security using thin client technology to simultaneously deliver hot desking for both voice and business applications. The solution can eliminate power-hungry desktop PCs, setting a new benchmark for energy efficiency.

"The Mitel Communications Suite combined with the Mitel/Sun thin client solution gives us a state-of-the-art IP telephony and desktop solution for our office, providing access to both the voice and data sessions at every desk," says Joe Hansbauer, executive director of UGIVE, a Cincinnati-based non-profit. "This solution provides the ease of use, flexibility, and all the mobility that we were looking for to develop our organization further and help us on our projects."

"The ability to manage Mitel's advanced telephony applications on Sun infrastructure offers a blueprint for businesses to enjoy the application benefits from two leading companies," says Julie Cork, Sun Canada's vice president of strategy and business development. "The combined solution can be seamlessly integrated into any customer's existing network to deliver a secure unified computing and communications environment."
