"Until now, the process of virtualizing voice has been quite difficult. The reason is latency; while latency is accepted and even expected for certain applications, it is not an option for real-time applications such as voice. Together, Mitel and VMware have solved this complex challenge, and as a result, users will experience voice just as they always have, while their organizations enjoy the significant benefits of virtualizing this application."
- Stephen Beamish, Vice-President Marketing and Strategic Partnerships, Mitel.
"VMware and Mitel are paving the way for virtualizing voice applications so that customers can now apply the benefits of virtualization to their unified communications strategies. With the groundbreaking performance provided by VMware vSphere™ 4 and the collaboration between our companies, customers of all sizes can capture the benefits of virtualization for voice applications, offering greater efficiency, control and choice for customers while lowering costs and increasing resource utilization."
- Parag Patel, Vice President, Alliances, VMware.
"Everyday we have more customers approaching us about combining their business applications with their real-time communications applications in a virtualized environment in their data centre.The leading work Mitel and VMware are doing to enable this is critically important, allowing customers to further capitalize on this growing trend."
