Virtualization

Mitel provides virtualized unified communications and collaboration (UCC) solutions for the data center and the desktop that drive cost savings, simplify IT management, and enhance security and business continuity.

Mitel was the first in the industry to deliver best-in-class, virtualized unified communications and collaboration (UCC) applications that can reside alongside other enterprise business applications in mainstream data center environments. We have continued that industry leadership as the first to bring unified communications to the virtual desktop.

A recent commissioned study, conducted by Forrester Consulting, found customers that have deployed Mitel’s virtualization solutions experience a three year risk-adjusted ROI of 84 percent, with a payback period of less than 8 months.

Hundreds of savvy companies have deployed Mitel virtualization solutions and are experiencing significant returns on their investment with:

  • Enriched communication and collaboration
  • Lower capital and operating expenses
  • Streamlined administration and management
  • Stronger business continuity and security
  • Increased productivity for IT and users alike

Uniting the Worlds of Data and Voice

Mitel virtualization solutions offer all the functionality and features of Mitel’s award-winning unified communications solutions delivered as a complete package of virtual appliances that can be deployed alongside other virtual applications in your VMware-enabled data centers. This delivers an innovative way to manage and converge real-time applications cost-effectively, so you can leverage both voice and data communications to maximum advantage.

Virtualized Voice in the Data Center

MiVoice Business Virtual is the first real-time trusted voice application for the VMware vSphere platform and runs on the same servers as other business applications in virtualized data centers.

Imagine being able to manage unified communications and collaboration (UCC) solutions like any other business application in your virtualized data center.

Mitel Virtual Solutions let you do that. Working closely with virtualization leader VMware, we have united the worlds of data and voice so that communications and data applications can reside on the same virtual servers, enabling you to wring a whole lot more out of your virtualization investment.

Virtualized Voice on the Desktop

 Mitel and VMware are the first to bring voice to the virtual desktop, enabling organizations to reap the benefits of adding unified communications and collaboration (UCC) to other virtual desktop applications.

Desktop virtualization 101

Desktop virtualization is hugely significant for IT departments and end users alike. Operating systems, configuration settings, and applications that have traditionally run on personal computers can instead be located centrally on virtual servers in the data center, and accessed over the Internet – via the cloud. The benefits include significant cost savings through centralized management and much greater flexibility for workers of all kinds.

Giving voice to the virtual desktop

For technical reasons, voice applications have traditionally been excluded from the virtualized desktop. But Mitel and VMware have brought voice to the virtual desktop by integrating Mitel Unified Communicator Advanced (UCA) with VMware View, generating significant benefits for IT, end users, and the organization as a whole.

Benefits for IT

For IT, voice-enabled virtual desktops mean:

  • Centralized administration.
  • Reduced hardware upgrades to user PCs.
  • Easier software upgrades.
  • Increased data and application security.

Benefits for business users

For the people who rely on their desktops to be productive, voice-enabled virtual desktops mean:

  • Work, communicate, and collaborate from anywhere.
  • Easier communication.
  • BYOD (Bring Your Own Device).

Benefits for the organization

For the business as a whole, voice on the virtual desktop means:

  • Lower operating and capital expenses.
  • Increased security and data integrity.
  • Easier business continuity and disaster recovery.
  • Greater productivity.
