Enable Carriers to Deliver Next Generation Converged
Access Solutions

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--

Where:      DSLcon '00 Canada, Booth number 318

            Toronto, Canada

When:       May 1-4, 2000

Who:        Mitel Communications Systems, a division of Mitel
            Corporation (TSE:MLT;NYSE:MLT), a growing global provider
            of converging voice and data systems and applications,
            and specialty semiconductors for the communications
            industry.

What:       Mitel Communications Systems announces OEM agreement with
            Pairgain Technologies to leverage Pairgain's High-Bit-
            Rate DSL (HDSL2) transmission technology with Mitel's new
            SMART-1 I2AD Intelligent Integrated Access Device. (See
            April 28 release, Mitel Adds Intelligence to VoDSL
            Integrated Access Devices.)

            The collaboration provides converged voice and data
            carriers with a seamless migration from TDM access
            facilities to a more flexible packet-based bundled
            solution.  By incorporating Pairgain's DSL solutions into
            the SMART-1 I2AD product line, Mitel is developing next-
            generation converged access solutions that enable
            carriers to provide new bundled VoDSL services over 4
            wire HDSL, standards-based 2 wire HDSL2, and future
            G.SHDSL compliant infrastructures.
