Integra Telecom Partners with Mitel to offer SIP Interoperability with Mitel’s Communication Systems

Mitel Certification on Mitel Communications Director andMitel 5000 Allows Carrier to Offer End-to-End Telecom Solutions

Customer Service, Network Services and Certified Mitel Equipment Combine forReliability and Cost-Savings

PORTLAND, Ore., Mar. 16, 2011 – Integra Telecom Inc., a fiber-based telecom provider for businesses, has created a single-source, end-to-end telecom solution for businesses of all sizes by combining its localized customer service, robust network and certified Mitel telecom equipment into one package.

As part of Integra’s program to expand the number of IP PBXs certified to operate with its Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) Trunking service, Integra recently earned Mitel® SIP Trunking Interoperability certification with the Mitel Communications Director (MCD) and the Mitel 5000Communications Platform (CP). This certification now assures that businesses utilizing or vendors offering these Mitel IP PBXs will work seamlessly with Integra’s powerful SIP Solutions SIPTrunking Service.

In addition, this enables Integra, a Mitel Diamond level Partner, to combine SIP Trunking services and Mitel IP PBX solutions into one package from a single source. The bundled offering provides businesses the ability to consolidate their telecom services and equipment with one carrier that’s supported with project coordination, installation, training, and ongoing customer service. As a result, businesses are able to realize cost savings and infrastructure improvements.

“Products and services designed by separate vendors can lead to confusion, compatibility issues and disappointing results,” said Steve Zimba, CMO for Integra Telecom. “Integra’s ability toprovide robust network services along with the Mitel’s MCD and the 5000 CP solution, combined with locally based customer service ensures a more efficient and reliable telecom experience.”

"In order to provide the best solutions to our customers, Mitel continues to build an ecosystem of best-in-class companies,” said Philip Keenan, VP of Mitel’s U.S. partner business. “Working with partners, like Integra, to deliver customers integrated solutions is an important component of success in the current business communications marketplace.”

Through Integra Telecom, businesses can utilize voice lines, Internet, MPLS and SIP services integrated with state-of-the-art VoIP systems, data services, unified communication applications and Managed Telephony Solutions.
