UTRECHT, Netherlands, June 20, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mitel® (Nasdaq:MITL)
(TSX:MNW), a leading provider of cloud and premises based unified
communications software solutions, today announced the University Medical
Center Utrecht (UMCU), the largest public healthcare institution in the
Netherlands, is replacing its communication platform with a Mitel Private
Cloud solution. The new solution, designed, implemented and managed by Mitel
partner Zetacom, integrates Mitel with healthcare applications, including a
custom designed application for smartphones intended to optimize communication
between 11,000 doctors, nurses and healthcare employees.

More than 3,500 of those employees will use a private GSM solution (a mobile
network that is locally managed and controlled) from Mitel, making them more
accessible when they are away from their desk. A new custom application
designed by Zetacom will also make it possible to securely distribute alarm
messages within the private GSM environment. In the future employees will be
able to connect to other healthcare applications via their smartphone.

solution, will be used by the entire UMCU, which includes Academic Hospital
Utrecht, Wilhelmina Children's Hospital and the Medical Faculty Utrecht and
centralized management and maintenance. The Central Military Hospital will be
standalone but connected. Using MiVoice for Lync, the new solution will be
integrated with Microsoft Lync, providing users access to a complete range of
telephony and messaging features without having to leave their existing Lync
