Mitel Recognized by Frost & Sullivan for Leadership in UC Virtualization

February 25, 2013

Frost & Sullivan (News - Alert) has looked at the unified communications virtualization market, and found Mitel (News - Alert) to be the leader. As such, thanks to Mitel’s product developments in real-time communications software virtualization, it has been awarded the 2013 North America Award for Product Leadership.

This award is granted to the company having proven its expertise with innovations in product features, as well as functionality for the best quality and values for customers. As Mitel has demonstrated its ability to address customers of all shapes and sizes – with more than 40 percent of its applications configured to be deployed on virtual machines – it has certainly proven itself worthy of this.

Mitel offers benefits such as hardware consolidation and unified management, which are enticing to small and medium-sized businesses.

Larger organizations, of course, still benefit from the streamlined operations that virtualization provides, as well as the centralized provisioning, management, control and more.

"While Mitel has used its first-to-market advantages optimally, it has also regularly improved its single software stream to provide the same features, quality of service, warranty, and software assurance programs, no matter how customers choose to deploy its solutions," said Robert Arnold, Senior Analyst for Frost & Sullivan. "The company has streamlined development, sales, training and support, to provide a consistent user experience across private cloud or customer-premises equipment, hosted or public cloud configurations."

Mitel has done a great job standing out above its competitors, with virtualized offerings that provide quality communications at an affordable cost. Its cloud-ready portfolio of virtual UC server solutions provide scalable and affordable solutions for businesses of all sizes, all providing the quality one would expect from Mitel.

Its recognition is well-earned, and is unlikely to be its last.
