Ahead of the Competition

Key messages

strategy

OTTAWA, Feb. 23, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mitel® (Nasdaq:MITL) (TSX:MNW), a
global leader in real-time business, cloud and mobile communications, today
announced deployment of its voice and video over LTE solution to support
Smartfren's recently announced Andromax LTE mobile device launch. Smartfren
will work closely with Mitel on the rapid rollout of new mobile services
starting in 2016. Indonesia is the fifth geography to introduce VoLTE from
Mitel including major service launches in North America with T-Mobile US and
in Europe with 3UK.

The speed of Smartfren's 4G LTE deployment has eclipsed the rollout in other
regions, highlighting the enormous potential for software-based mobile
solutions across Asia. As mobile operators face intense competition from
disruptive market players and over-the-top application services, Mitel's
software-only VoLTE solution allows rapid deployment optimized for driving
continuous service innovation and new revenue opportunities. The solution
also supports multi-device service delivery giving operators the ability to
offer a richer suite of integrated IP services across all access points and
devices, regardless of access network technology.

Since 2012 Mitel has supported the introduction of milestone mobile
deployments including the first VoLTE, first North American Rich
Communications Services (RCS), first IMS VoWiFi, and first network functions
virtualization (NFV)-based IMS implementation. With the Smartfren launch in
Indonesia, Mitel adds to the list with the first nationwide VoLTE service
launch in the region.
