<p>The deployment is part of an agreement between the two companies to demonstrate the combined UC solution with advanced telephony integration.</p>
<p>“Mitel’s suite demonstrates the powerful benefits of Microsoft’s unified communications technologies through tightly integrated telephony, presence and collaboration features that enable clearer and faster decision making, increased productivity and efficiency and streamlined costs,” said Adam Hecktman, director of the Microsoft Technology Center Chicago, and alliance member program manager for the Americas. “With a continued partnership in UC development and interworking, Mitel will showcase their solutions running on our technology within all of our MTC locations globally, allowing us to demonstrate the power unified communications to current and future customers.”</p>
