Mitel Networks is a multinational player in the international drive to provide Voice over IP (VoIP) solutions for enterprise. The company’s headquarters is in Canada but it has regional offices in the USA, the UK and Singapore giving it a global prescence in the marketplace.

The company’s founder, Terry Matthews, has recently bought the company back and planned to merge it with March Networks, a company he also chairman of. However, regulators blocked the move so the companies have announced a strategic partnership to provide IP telephony solutions in the global marketplace.

The company’s main platform offering is the March Networks 3200 Integrated Communications Platform, which is the first enterprise VoIP platform to deliver feature rich, reliable call control to IP, says the company.

Mitel is also offering a speech recognition application, the 6510 Speech, which allows information to be programed in under one name. The company provides call centre applications which are web-centric and allow managers ready access to mission-critical information. The company also offers the NuPoint Messenger server providing a scalable integrated voice and fax solution.
