Mitel Delivers Unlimited Mobility and Encryption Protection for Road Warriors and Home Office

  • 23 August, 2006 15:31

<p>Mitel has today announced new and enhanced enterprise mobility solutions which simplify the ability to collaborate, make the right decisions, and serve customers “in the moment”.</p>
<p>Gwilym Funnell, Mitel Australia Managing Director commented, “Mitel’s mobility solutions can help any business offer more flexible working arrangements. You can work anywhere, anytime - it’s your choice. Keeping information secure has always been a challenge when using laptops, so Mitel has developed easy to use, encryption protected document sharing and communications solutions for employees working away from the office.”</p>
<p>Mitel’s second-generation of Mobility Solutions make communications simpler for everyone with seamless, simple and secure mobility.</p>
<p>The Mitel Mobility Solutions portfolio offers end-to-end, fully integrated mobility that makes it easier for the mobile worker to stay in touch with fellow employees, customers and others in their community of interest through:</p>
<p>• Embedded, VPN-independent, 128 bit AES encrypted voice and data traffic over Mitel Managed Applications Server
• Feature-rich softphones, conferencing and collaboration tools for road warriors
• Plug and work Teleworking for business continuity
• Full-featured, device agnostic mobility integration for the corridor warrior
• Low-cost audio conferencing collaboration tools with recording</p>
<p>The new solution sets a new standard of flexibility and security for mobile workers in the office, on the road, at home or in the car, without sacrificing the productivity and collaboration benefits of familiar features of enterprise communications.</p>
<p>“With an aging workforce and a newer generation of worker that increasingly wants to strike a better work-life balance, employers are beginning to look at technology alternatives that will help them attract and retain top talent,” said Nora Freedman, IP telephony analyst at IDC.</p>
<p>Nora Freedman continued, “Solutions designed to provide the ability to retain and attract high quality workers with teleworking tools that facilitate and encourage information-sharing and team-working , as well as expedite decision-making, will increasingly become a differentiator for top employers that employ knowledge workers.”</p>
<p>Easier, Better Collaboration and Conferencing with Mitel Teleworker and Your Assistant®
To address the anticipated rise in the number of telecommuters and home-based workers, Mitel has enhanced the ease-of-use and integration of its Teleworker solution with collaboration and unified communications applications.</p>
<p>Plugged into any broadband connection, the Mitel Teleworker solution now provides support for the Mitel Your Assistant™ Softphone without the need for a VPN connection. Additionally, it provides the flexibility of a feature rich softphone, combined with powerful enterprise features such as presence and availability, secure Instant Messaging (IM) and file transfer, video, data sharing and full collaboration over the enterprise-grade Mitel 3300 IP Communications Platform (ICP) and Mitel 200 ICP for smaller business environments.</p>
<p>Large and small forward-looking organizations planning their response to potential pandemic-related worker absenteeism are increasingly looking to teleworking as part of their pandemic-specific emergency plans to maintain their business operations.</p>
<p>Public health organizations estimate as many as one in three workers will miss work due to infection, taking care of children or family members or simply refusing to go to work for fear of contracting the virus in heavily populated office towers.</p>
<p>Mitel Quick Conference
To address the growing number of companies that are adopting cost-saving in-house, on-premise conferencing, Mitel has added Quick Conference to its portfolio of collaboration tools.</p>
<p>Targeted at small and medium-sized businesses, Quick Conference is simple, flexible and scales up to 32 participants, or four conference calls each with eight participants. Connection to the Mitel 3300 IP Communications Platform (ICP) is via a SIP interface. User access to the system is via a Telephone User Interface (TUI) or via a Web-based Graphical User Interface (GUI).</p>
<p>Mitel Mobile Extension (ME)
Mitel’s second generation Mobile Extension solution enhances mobile workforce accessibility and productivity by extending the availability of PBX features and functionality to any mobile, home or wireless device.</p>
<p>The Mitel Mobile Extension enterprise mobility solution now includes Calling Line ID to the mobile or remote device, call transfer, hold and conference codes, and the ability to establish a Quick Conference from any mobile device over the corporate network.</p>
<p>To reduce roaming and long distance charges, Mobile Extension can also be used in conjunction with enterprise hot-desking to seamlessly move phone calls from cell to desk phone in any enterprise location. The user simply logs in to the nearest Mitel IP Phone and takes control of the phone making it their extension number complete with their user profile.</p>
<p>Mitel Managed Application Server
Mitel Mobility Solutions are enabled by the Mitel Managed Application Server, an award-winning, multi-function network server solution that seamlessly blends the wired and wireless worlds by extending rich telephony features such as voice mail, conferencing and speech recognition to the mobile device of the user’s choice, regardless of service provider.</p>
<p>Designed for single-site and branch-based organizations with five to 500 users, the Managed Application Server provides everything a small or medium-sized enterprise needs to use the Internet more effectively.</p>
<p>The Managed Application Server includes a secure firewall, centralized file management, comprehensive company e-mail system with built-in virus protection, and sophisticated remote-access capabilities. The entire solution can be set up quickly and managed remotely, making it perfect for organizations with limited or no on-site IT expertise.</p>
<p>The Managed Application Server is also ideal for large enterprises that need to roll out targeted applications – such as the Mitel Teleworker Solution – quickly and easily on a platform that is open, highly scalable and future-proof.</p>
