Mitel Networks Corp. released Tuesday version 3.1 of its Unified Communicator (UC) Advanced solution, which includes improvements to its Web and mobile portal, a dynamic location client for BlackBerry smartphones and a new server appliance.
UC Advanced allows users single-portal access to all collaboration tools, including desk phone, softphone, mobile devices, visual voice mail, secure IM, presence, audio and Web conferencing, desktop video conferencing, document sharing and e-mail.
UC Advanced Web and Mobile Portals have been enhanced to allow the user to work independently of the PC client. UC Advanced Web and Mobile Portals continue to allow the user to view corporate contacts and user and device presence information, view call history and voice mail message details, and download and play voice mail messages from the Web browser.
UC Advanced Dynamic Location, available for BlackBerry smartphones, allows the user to define the GPS locations to associate with each Dynamic Status, and changes Dynamic Status based on GPS location or by manual selection.
Additionally, UC Advanced now is available as a server appliance pre-installed with Mitel Standard Linux.
Additionally, Mitel announced Unified Communicator Express, a serverless unified communications client, is now free for Mitel 5000 Communications Platform customers.
