Mitel UC software now available for iOS platforms

Mitel, a provider of unified communications software solutions, has announced that Mitel Unified Communicator (UC) Advanced software is now available on the iOS mobile operating system for Apple iPhones and iPads.
This offering further extends the reach of Mitel’s unified communications platform on mobile devices, allowing IT managers to accommodate the Bring-Your-Own-Device (BYOD) phenomenon in which workers bring their personal mobile device into the workplace.
The BYOD movement is one of the many additional challenges that make it difficult for IT departments to cope with security and control issues in the enterprise. The advanced software is now making it possible to handle this trend with greater ease through unified communications for iOS and other mobile platforms.

This offering continues to build on Mitel’s Freedom architecture, which eliminates the closed, single-vendor unified communications architecture that has historically defined the industry. IT now can deliver the unified communications applications via mobile clients across iOS-based as well as RIM and Android based mobile devices, representing the vast majority of mobile devices in business environments.

Companies can’t ignore BYOD phenomenon – Mitel MD

“We recognise that delivering unified communications software to the iOS platform for Apple products is essential to our customers,” said Andy Bull, managing director of Mitel South Africa.

“The BYOD phenomenon is one companies can’t ignore. By supplying a single software stream that works on the most popular mobile platforms and offering exceptional adaptability to existing infrastructure within an organisation, we aim to change the game in unified communications software,” said Bull.

UC Advanced provides desktop and mobile users a single interface to access all communications capabilities, including voice, video, instant messaging, conferencing and presence.
