OTTAWA, Ontario, July 10, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mitel® (Nasdaq:MITL)
(TSX:MNW), a global leader in business communications, will demonstrate
solutions that help customers leverage their Microsoft infrastructure and
maximize Lync at Microsoft's Worldwide Partner Conference (WPC) in Washington
D.C. next week. This includes Lync-optimized phones, mobile solutions and
Mitel's contact center platform natively built on Microsoft technology.

"Customers want solutions that work for, not against them. They want to bring
Lync investments to business phones and extend that into the contact center.
They want solutions that work with their infrastructure, not costly 'rip and
replace' ultimatums," said Dave Johnson, Director of Technical Marketing at
Mitel. "To deliver this, Mitel has brought together the industry's broadest
portfolio of solutions that are designed to work seamlessly with and take full
advantage of Microsoft technologies."

A new and broader Mitel portfolio will be on display at WPC this year. In the
last 12 months Mitel has nearly doubled in size, strengthened its contact
center offering and greatly expanded its portfolio, while emerging as the #1
market share leader in EMEA and climbing to #3 in North America.

Mitel's customer-driven approach translates into new opportunities for
business partners, including more solutions that add value to Microsoft Lync
and other Microsoft technologies. In addition to meeting with existing
partners, Mitel is recruiting new partners interested in growing their
business with Mitel and Microsoft. Mitel will show a number of solutions to
Microsoft partners at WPC, including:
