Mitel and SDG Partner to Bring Virtualised Voice to the Desktop

August 28, 2012

Mitel® (Nasdaq:MITL) (TSX:MNW), a leading provider of unified communications and collaboration (UCC) software solutions, today announced that it has partnered with SDG, the EMEA specialist technology distributor. The strategic partnership will see SDG offering hosted and virtual voice and unified communications from Mitel, based on the VMware desktop virtualisation platform.

Globally, many organisations have already deployed virtualised voice through the Mitel and VMware relationship, which brings real-time voice applications to virtualised servers for the first time. The agreement with SDG will enable Mitel to stimulate incremental growth for its virtualisation offering and expand its channel market by providing partners with high-value virtualised solutions that meet the growing demand from IT decisions makers.

SDG offers a highly skilled team that can support its channel partners in offering Mitel's voice solutions through flexible delivery models, either physically or virtually on customer premise, or via various cloud delivery models.

Graham Bevington, EVP International Markets, Mitel, commented: "SDG's strategy firmly supports the Mitel Freedom proposition, bringing together best-of-breed, interoperable voice and data solutions. The company's expertise, expansive channel and strong software focus make them an ideal partner for Mitel, helping us to bring our game-changing virtualised UC offering to IT decision makers across EMEA."

Lee Driscoll, Business Unit Director, SDG, commented: "Mitel is a fantastic addition to SDG and the introduction of the Mitel solution strengthens our Audio Visual and Unified Communications portfolio. As a key player within virtualisation distribution this alliance provides SDG with the exciting prospect to bring two leading vendors together. We can now offer our virtualisation partner community the opportunity to bring new solutions and services into their stable, using their existing skills in the virtualisation arena."

John Churchhouse, SMB Director, EMEA, VMware, added: "This partnership is excellent news for the VMware solution provider community, bringing together SDG, a highly valued and award-winning VMware distributor, with Mitel, which is a leader in virtualising unified communications. By combining forces, SDG and Mitel will be able to drive new and incremental revenue streams in the world of unified communications."
