Why Choose Mitel PABX Systems

Background and History

Aastra and Mitel merged in January 2014. The merger rebranded, replaced, and discontinued various Aastra products.

Aastra Technologies Limited, formerly situated in Concord, Ontario, Canada, supplied hardware and software for Internet and worldwide communication infrastructures. Products included high-quality digital video encoders, decoders, and gateways, home and commercial telephone terminals, screen telephones, Enterprise PBXs, network access terminals, and more.

The company serves solo owners, multi-national companies, telecom providers, and government agencies. Distributors and resellers connect consumers worldwide. The company is based in Concord, Canada.

Hugh Scholaert and Francis Shen launched Aastra in Toronto in 1983 after purchasing an engineering consulting firm. The firm initially served the defence sector. In 1993, it switched to telecoms. Aastra entered the Canadian stock market in 1996.

Aastra bought Nortel Networks’ Access Solutions Division in 2000, including the rights to make Nortel phones. The company acquired Ericsson’s cable modem and Lucent Technologies’ digital video divisions in 2001. Aastra acquired Nortel’s CVX and CSG division in 2002 and ASCOM’s PBX systems in 2003.

Aastra Technologies’ 2005 revenue was 75% European due to the acquisition of the EADS Enterprise Telephony division and the DeTeWe Telecommunication Systems division. Only 5% of its revenues came from Canada, whereas 17% came from the US.

In 2008, Aastra acquired Ericsson’s enterprise PBX business, including its flagship MD110/MX-ONE Telephony Switch. Aastra won the Best of Show Award in 2008 for being Internet Telephony’s Best Large Enterprise Solution in 2007.

Key Features of Aastra PABX Solutions

Even a decade ago’s business phone systems were vastly different from what’s on the market now. Modern telephone systems are digital, so they are safe and quick. Smaller firms can now compete with larger ones by utilising enterprise-level capabilities made possible by new technologies such as VoIP and the cloud. There are currently three deployment options available for today’s business phones: onsite, cloud, and hybrid.

On-Site: Some businesses want to set up a locally managed phone system onsite for strategic reasons as they would rather buy, own and manage their phone solution in-house so that they can maintain complete control over the system. Since an onsite phone system is a one-time investment (CapEx), it does not incur any recurring fees to fund the service.

Cloud: Cloud phones are hosted online phone systems. It’s a virtual phone system, so a business doesn’t need hardware to have a professional phone system. Phone systems hosted by a third-party provider can scale from small to enterprise-level businesses.

A company subscribes to a cloud phone system monthly and pays for what they use. Businesses can add lines and data with a cloud-based system. Call data can enhance customer communication and engagement like VoIP PBX.

Hybrid: Hybrid phone systems offer the best of both worlds, with certain aspects hosted in the cloud and others onsite. If a company’s onsite technology hasn’t entirely depreciated, it may desire to scale and expand its phone system. A hybrid system can bridge this gap by conserving the money you invested while providing the most flexibility for the future.

Hybrid systems combine hosted cloud phone service with existing hardware. Large corporations with several remote locations often choose this. The company may choose to control outlying locations in the cloud while delivering a consistent user experience at the main headquarters.
