Now available, and installed in customer sites, Live Business Gateway leverages legacy environments and simplifies communications between businesses. With Live Business Gateway, users can invoke telephony and presence features from within the Microsoft Office suite of applications and from within Mitel applications including Mitel Customer Interaction Solutions and Mitel NuPoint Messenger  IP.</p>
<p>Mobility Solutions with Mobile Extension
Mitel Mobile Extension rounds out Mitel’s broad suite of Mobility Solutions that address personal mobility, campus mobility and enterprise mobility for corridor warriors, teleworkers and staff on the road. Mobile Extension enables a 3300 ICP or Mitel SX-200 IP Communications Platform (ICP) user to link their deskphone with an internal or external PSTN-connected phone (i.e. a cell phone or wireless handset). When the user's desk phone rings, the twinned phone will ring simultaneously. The twinning feature allows users to manage and publish one contact number, providing a truly integrated mobile and desktop experience.</p>
<p>Mobile Extension extends some of the most popular PBX features to this twinned device, providing mobile employees with office-like PBX telephony features, regardless of their location or telephone device.</p>

Release 10 of the Mitel NuPoint Messenger IP Model 640 provides higher scalability and resiliency expanding from eight to 240 ports and over 100,000 mailboxes. Using state-of-the-art technology and leveraging open industry standards such as SIP, Mitel builds on NuPoint Messenger IP’s leadership position as an open, standards-based messaging solution. The carrier-grade messaging solution ensures maximum flexibility for technology evolution without the need for costly upgrades or replacements. Enterprise level voice solutions demand maximum reliability. Optional features such as Continuous System Operation provides for a fail-over between servers for maximum uptime – an industry first in an enterprise voice processing solution.</p>
<p>Customer Interaction Solutions – Scalable, Resilient and Virtual
Along with Mitel’s entire suite of solutions, Mitel Customer Interaction Solutions scale up through the deployment of cost-effective IP trunking gateways on the edge of the network. Resiliency is provided by enabling customer interaction agents to reside on a separate controller or controllers which, in the event of a primary outage, automatically fail-over the agent's environment and registers with their secondary controller. Agents that are geographically dispersed can be seamlessly integrated based on skills, group or location.</p>
