Mitel (News - Alert) and OpenIP are teaming up, integrating Mitel’s UCC software platform with OpenIP’s cloud-based offering for its resellers and system integrators in France. As such, OpenIP’s customers will have access to a new suite of business communication services based on Mitel’s cloud telephony offering, available at a monthly subscription.
OpenIP’s customers can choose between four subscription options, depending on their communication needs. They range from 6.60 to 15 Euros per user a month, with telephony and voicemail at the most basic option, and more and more tools added on as the price goes up, adding teleworking, audio and video collaboration, unified messaging, and more. If business customers find that their current subscription is more than they need, or not enough, they can modify their subscriptions each month.
OpenIP has recently been certified by Mitel for its SIP trunking, and is designated as a Mitel Managed Service Provider. Customer sites are connected through the carriers MPLS broadband network, installing the cloud offering securely and gaining high quality service. With the parallel cloud infrastructure offered by OpenIP and the VMware virtualization layer, the applications are always readily available for any number of users.
"Together with OpenIP, we are able to offer our customers new and innovative cloud-based Unified Communications (News - Alert) services," says Lionel Hovsepian, Mitel’s VP of sales in France. "Our advanced technology is augmented by OpenIP's full compatibility with our cloud-based solutions, bringing businesses real added value on a functional, operational and financial level. Mitel's UCaaS solutions, coupled with OpenIP's Cloud and SIP offers, offer considerable development opportunities for our current and future integrators."
OpenIP scored a nice deal, as its customers will soon learn when they experience the range of capabilities and quality that Mitel’s UCC software can offer. Of course, Mitel is gaining greatly from this as well, with several new customers from OpenIP. Both their customers and their profits will thank them for this.
