Portage Township Schools To Use $420,000 In Government E-Rate Funding To Deploy Mitel Cloud Solution

HOLLYWOOD, Fla., June 27, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mitel Business Partner Conference – Mitel® (Nasdaq:MITL) (TSX:MNW), a leading provider of cloud and premises based unified communications (UC) software solutions, announced a cloud contract with Indiana's Portage Township Schools (PTS) to support the delivery of education services to more than 8,000 students across the district. With this deployment PTS is able to take advantage of federal government E-Rate funding, which is designed to help schools deploy advanced communications solutions and Internet access.

"At PTS, we truly believe that each child is unique, and that it is our responsibility to provide the best education possible in an environment that is challenging and employs the most stimulating technology to support learning," said Dr. Frataccia, superintendent of PTS. "This is why we are so pleased to introduce this new technology into our education environment. Faculty, staff and students will all benefit from having advanced collaborative instruction tools and high-speed access to additional learning materials accessed through the cloud."

Mitel Business Partner Gibson Teldata will utilize a MiCloud hosted UC solution to replace PTS' legacy Avaya/Lucent system. The new solution consists of more than 1,000 MiVoice phones that will be deployed across 17 locations. PTS is also deploying MiVoice Video, an all-in-one multimedia collaboration tool that provides multi-party audio and video conferencing, in-room presentation display, and remote collaboration.

"In today's economic climate when schools are asked to do more with less, this Mitel Cloud solution provides a flexible and cost-effective option for school districts to advance their services and offer an enhanced learning environment for their students," said Scott Egan, director of Business Development, Gibson Teldata. "This solution eliminates the need for constant and costly infrastructure repairs and upgrades of the legacy system, and at the same time qualifies for significant government funding that saves even more for PTS."
