Mitel has unveiled the Mitel Freedom architecture, a single, cloud-ready software stream that delivers an array of communications options for businesses looking to integrate a voice solution into best-in-class networks and applications. The company says the architecture is designed to decrease operating costs – for example, businesses can save up to 45 percent in corporate mobility costs and reduce the number of required communications servers by as much as 85 percent.
Mitel is also announcing new supporting offerings and capabilities including Mitel AnyWare, a cloud-based UC service, desktop virtualisation integration with VMware View, and expanded UC support for Android, BlackBerry PlayBook, and iPad devices.
Mitel adds that Freedom delivers ‘an in-office experience, giving employees access to a rich suite of UC features on the mobile device of their choice, regardless of location’.
This supports the trend toward “bring your own mobile” in the business world and creates a single identity and presence status that follows the user, not the device.
