Today Evolve IP™, The Cloud Services Company™, announced that its award-winning UC solution now integrates Mitel MiVoice 5320e, 5330e, 5340e and 5360 IP business telephones with Evolve IP’s Broadsoft-based, industry-leading unified communications and contact center software. Mitel IP business telephone-certified interoperability, a first for this line of Mitel phones, is available through Mitel’s nationwide partner channels and network of VARs.
The first Mitel Channel Partner to implement this solution with Evolve IP is Maryland Telephone of Towson, MD. These Mitel IP telephones are immediately available through this unique collaboration and include highly demanded features such as fully programmable function keys, embedded gigabit support and large backlit displays, cordless modules and support for Broadsoft device management. Fully tested and certified, the hardware includes Mitel’s latest firmware upgrade 6.0.x. Evolve IP anticipates that many more partners will be on boarded in the upcoming months.
“Evolve IP is very excited to work with Mitel and its partner channel to bring this integration to market,” says Guy Fardone, General Manager and Chief Operating Officer for Evolve IP. “This relationship provides the ability for Mitel customers to leverage the power and features of the Cloud on an industry leading, world-class proven platform while leveraging existing Mitel technologies, investments and broad knowledge base.”
“This launch of the Mitel MiVoice 5320e, 5330e, 5340e and 5360 IP telephones is about giving Mitel partners more choice and flexibility and complements our recently announced Mitel MiVoice 6800i series of IP business phones. Certified interoperability with Broadsoft was a priority given their strong market position as well as finding a partner that would provide a first-class experience for our customers out of the gate. Evolve IP has been a great partner, delivering the experience our users expect,” says Christian Szpilfogel, Chief Architect at Mitel.
“This is great news,” said Michael Cook, President of Maryland Telephone. “Evolve IP and Mitel are both long term partners of Maryland Telephone and the announcement of Mitel’s telephones working on the Broadsoft platform shows that both Mitel and Evolve IP are committed to allowing our customers the freedom to choose which platform works best for them.”
