We are pleased to announce that the new Mitel 6970 IP Conference Phone is available for quoting / pre-order for MiVoice Business. The Mitel 6970 is the conference phone designed to make meetings easier and more efficient. A large 7-inch color touch screen grants excellent visibility to an intuitive user interface for quick navigation to essential meeting information and functions. A tight integration with MiVoice Business and supported applications delivers a unique conference experience that will not be found with 3rd party devices.
Built-in Bluetooth 4.1 and MobileLink grant you the ability to seamlessly pair with Bluetooth enabled audio devices and expand the capabilities of your mobile phone. Enjoy crystal clear audio with high definition speaker and eight beam-forming microphones for 360° audio pickup. With the Mitel 6970 conference phone, your entire meeting experience will be effortless.
The integration with Mitel’s MiVoice Business platform sets it apart from third party SIP based conference phones resulting in unmatched ease of deployment, maintenance and use. The 6970 supports the full MiVoice Business telephony feature set allowing for exceptional flexibility in terms of how conference calls can be initiated. Users may choose to leverage the built-in ad-hoc conference call setup capability of MiVoice Business allowing for up to 8-parties to be added to a call or alternately they may prefer to set up a Meet Me or MiCollab conference bridge. Access to MiCollab conferences is greatly enhanced thanks to the support for the MiCollab Meeting Center application, which provides a list of conferences scheduled for the meeting room right on the phone with one touch bridge access – no need to enter a meeting ID or PIN.
The 6970 is backwards compatible to MiVoice Business 8.0 SP2, which removes a significant barrier to adoption – i.e. the need to upgrade to the latest MiVoice Business release in order to deploy the conference phone. This provides channel partners with the opportunity to go back to existing customers running 8.0 SP2 or higher and engage in a discussion on swapping out their old conference phones with a new modern, state-of-the-art solution. For customers on earlier versions of MiVoice Business, the 6970 provides an opportunity to initiate a discussion on the value of upgrading to the latest MiVoice Business release.
