OTTAWA, Jan. 30 /CNW Telbec/ - Mitel(R), the trusted leader in IP
communications, today announced that it has signed an agreement with Rogers
Business Solutions Inc. under which it will supply the Mitel 3600 Hosted Key
Systems as part of a converged IP voice and data offering from Rogers. The
offering, to be launched this March, will provide voice, data and Internet
connectivity on a single IP (Internet Protocol) network for small businesses.
"Our goal is to deliver a simple, affordable IP solution to small
business in Canada that lets them combine their voice and data on a single,
converged network," says Randy Reynolds, President of Rogers Business
Solutions. "This hosted system is easy to install, easy to manage and easy to
upgrade, and with pricing based on the number of users rather than the amount
of use, monthly costs are predictable."
The Hosted Key System is a carrier-grade communications system that
allows service providers to displace traditional key systems in small
businesses (five to 50 employees) with a hosted service that is full-featured,
simple to use, low cost, and easy to manage. Small business owners can enjoy
business-quality voice using the same broadband data connection they use for
Internet access, and can rely on one vendor for all their business
"We are pleased that Rogers has chosen the Hosted Key System for its
converged solution," said Paul Butcher, president and chief operating officer,
Mitel. "This system delivers the same functionality as a traditional telephone
system, but with much simpler, web-based user management that will save small
businesses time and money in managing their voice networks."
