RECENT NEWS FLASH 2000-14 (May 2000)

(Updated on May 5,  2000)


Mitel and Ericsson Join Forces to Deliver an Integrated Digital Wireless Office Solution with PBX Functionality

Mitel Communications Systems and Ericsson announced a partnering agreement to deliver a new integrated wireless office solution with PBX functionality. The system combines Mitel’s IPERA 2000, based on Microsoft Windows NT™, and Ericsson’s Mobile Advantage™ Wireless Office to provide features of both wireless and wired PBX in an integrated package.

Ericsson's Mobile Advantage Wireless Office is a fully digital mobile communications system that acts as an extension of an enterprise's PBX phone system by providing users with one phone, one number mobility. Inside the office, the system creates a private cellular network. All calls to a user's office number are routed automatically to the mobile phone whether inside or outside the office. The Mobile Advantage system operates on either 800MHz or 1900MHz frequencies.

Based on Mitel’s proven SX-2000 LIGHT® voice technology, the IPERA 2000, an open platform, offers the "best of both worlds" by delivering all the benefits of an advanced telecommunications solution in a familiar and easy-to-manage LAN environment based on Microsoft Windows NT™.  The IPERA 2000 provides both standard and advanced PBX features and interfaces—including:

·         Call control

·         Digital trunking

·         IP

·         Digital and analog telephone sets

·         Voice mail

·         Auto attendant

·         Call costing and call center routing

·         Management and intelligent messaging functionality—pre-packaged and delivered on one server.

These features allow PBX numbering plans to be used even while workers are on the move. By connecting the wired system to the wireless, companies can now leverage their existing network infrastructure investments in either system while maximizing the benefits of both.

We, more than likely, see Ericsson's Mobile Advantage system featuring integrated voice and data offering, with a significant reliance on IP connectivity, in the near future.
