Mitel Adds Intelligence to VoDSL Integrated Access

OTTAWA, CANADA--Mitel Communications Systems, a division of Mitel
Corporation (TSE:MLT;NYSE:MLT), today announced the SMART-1 I2AD,
(Intelligent Integrated Access Device), a highly-intelligent
converged VoDSL (Voice over Digital Subscriber Line) solution for
businesses with analog communication systems and Ethernet LANs.

The SMART-1 I2AD combines Mitel's market-leading call controller
intelligence with the latest VoDSL technology to enhance the
flexibility and resilience of services provided by competitive
carriers.  The enhanced intelligence of the SMART-1 I2AD allows
carriers to meet regulatory obligations while also maximizing

Mitel's solution enables carriers to offer their customers new
services and added benefits.  With the SMART-1 I2AD, carriers can
deliver and control multiple services over a single copper loop,
which reduces delivery costs and results in more cost-effective
bundled services for end users.

'VoDSL and other converged broadband solutions promise more than a
method of reducing the cost of existing services,' said Scott
Harper, general manager, Mitel Network Access Solutions.
'Converged broadband access redefines how traditional voice and
data communication services are delivered, and provides the
foundation for a new generation of interactive multimedia

'The SMART-1 I2AD continues our tradition of focusing on advanced
products that make our carrier partners successful,' said Harper.
'The evidence is over four million lines of SMART-1(tm)  call
controllers operating today in carrier networks worldwide.'

About VoDSL

VoDSL is a technology that uses the existing copper pairs in the
telephone access network to deliver multiple voice channels and
high-speed data connections over a single phone line.  In most
cases, businesses with eight or fewer telephone lines rely on
individual analog loops and dial-up modems for Internet access.
With a VoDSL service, all phone circuits and an 'always on'
Internet connection are provided over a single telephone line.

Mitel's Solution

The SMART-1 I2AD is installed by the service provider on a
customer's premises, and connects an analog PBX, Key System, and
Ethernet LAN to a VoDSL circuit.  Unlike other VoDSL access
devices, the SMART-1 I2AD supports concurrent attachment to one or
more analog PSTN (Public Switched Telephone Network) trunks in
addition to the primary VoDSL connection.  Combined with local
call routing intelligence, this enables the SMART-1 I2AD to
overcome the existing limitations of VoDSL service and permits
service providers to fully control the voice services they offer.

As a result, the SMART-1 I2AD delivers a much higher level of
intelligence, control and resilience for the same price as a
simple pass through access device.  Service resilience is enhanced
since the SMART-1 I2AD automatically routes calls to one or more
analog PSTN trunks if the VoDSL service goes down.  Some of the
other features in the SMART-1 I2AD product are:

* Life line support: enables continued voice service from PSTN
trunks in the event of a power outage.

* Selective call routing: allows the service provider to control
where calls go, based on the number dialed. For example, 911 calls
will always be routed over an analog trunk.

* Dial string manipulation: enables the carrier to route calls via
multiple network selection depending on the location dialed.

Pricing and Availability

The SMART-1 I2AD will be available Q4 2000 from Mitel Network
Access Solutions and Mitel Platinum Elite VARs.  Pricing starts at
US $1500.00.
