Mitel has taken the ultra thin client Sun Ray technology and created a slim module that snaps securely onto Mitel IP phones to create the industry’s first truly unified communications desktop. This allows users to securely “hot desk” into both the Mitel IP phones and the Sun Ray thin client terminals using a authenticated Java Card to securely invoke personalized voice and data sessions.
The combined solution offers both enterprises and SMBs a complete unified communications solution with new levels of flexibility and business process improvement. It is optimized for both cost and security sensitive environments as well as for people who work remotely or are mobile.
It has been designed to significantly reduce power consumption with a combined nine Watts required to power the Sun Ray Thin Client and Mitel IP phone compared with 80 Watt PC or a 60 Watt laptop and 10 Watt IP phone. Additional power savings are realized through the reduction of servers provided by the pre-integrated Mitel Communications Suite that incorporates the Mitel Communications Director call control software as well as other value added applications.
“Sun and Mitel are introducing a new paradigm in voice and data communications,” said Hisham El-Amili, GM, Mitel, GCC. “The solutions make it even easier for businesses to enjoy the many advantages of unified communications to address the emerging needs of distributed, flexible, mobile work environments.”
Mitel will also be demonstrating SMB solutions and vertical focused solutions for the hospitality and financial markets.
