Mitel Unifies Communications for Flemish Environment Agency

Modernizing Communication System Decreases Costs and Increases Mobility and Collaboration for 1000 Employees

MECHELEN, Belgium, Feb. 12, 2013 — Mitel(R)
(Nasdaq:MITL) (TSX:MNW), a leading provider of cloud and premises based
unified communications software solutions, today announced that the
Flemish Environment Agency (VMM) is rolling out the Mitel
Communications Director (MCD) platform across its thirteen offices. VMM
is an agency of the Flemish Government with a mandate to sustain the
environment in Flanders. The deployment of the new communication
system, implemented and managed by Mitel partner Inia, has been
designed to save the government money, simplify management and enhance
communication and collaboration for the agency’s 1,000 employees.

VMM’s upgrade was driven partly in response to growing demand from
employees for tools that provide increased mobility and better
collaboration with colleagues regardless of their location. By
replacing its legacy communication platform with the advanced
capabilities of the MCD platform, VMM employees can more easily and
cost effectively work together across the agency.

Wim De Block, VMM’s system administrator for the project, commented:
"The way people work has changed a lot over the past several years.
Flexibility and mobility are increasingly becoming critical to
communications across our organization, and will continue to grow. By
simply moving our phone calls onto an internet phone platform, the
Mitel solution will enable us to collaborate more efficiently and also
allow us to save on telephony expenses."

Built on Mitel’s core communications software platform, MCD delivers a
highly flexible, feature-rich IP telephony system that is scalable and
simple to manage, and responds to IT’s demand for streamlined and
centralized communications management. In addition to MCD, VMM will use
Mitel Unified Communicator Advanced and Mitel Collaboration Advanced
applications which will give VMM employees insight in the accessibility
and availability of colleagues, and provides audio conferencing,
instant messaging and web collaboration capabilities.
