Michigan Technological University Migrates to IP Telephony with Mitel  Ipera
2000: Mitel Ipera 2000 Improves Existing Communication System, Boosts Network

OTTAWA, CANADA--Mitel Communications Systems, a division of Mitel Corporation,
(NYSE/TSE:MLT) today announced Michigan Technological University (MTU) has
deployed its advanced Voice-over-IP (VoIP) solution, Ipera 2000(tm). MTU, a
leading technological educational institution, adopted VoIP to extend its
current network infrastructure and support voice, video traffic and data.

MTU plans to migrate to a fully converged voice/data network during the next
few years. The University took the first step towards true IP telephony by
networking Ipera 2000 with its existing Mitel SX-2000 system, to serve a
combination of IP and digital telephones in its Information Technology (IT)
department. Ipera 2000 currently supports one third of the IT department

'We chose Mitel because it is a highly recognized voice solutions supplier,'
said Dr. James Cross, vice provost for information technology, MTU. 'Mitel
offers superior convergent voice systems that enables MTU's network to grow
and meet the demands of the future. Furthermore, MTU's investment in SX-2000
technology is protected by the seamless migration path that exists between
traditional PBX platforms and Mitel Ipera 2000, IP-based platforms.'

The IT department at MTU is a converged organization, responsible for
centrally managing and delivering all voice, data, and video services
throughout the campus. The MTU voice communications network is divided into
two sections: one for administrative staff and faculty and one for resident
students. By implementing Ipera 2000, MTU is able to transparently network a
workgroup adjunct to its existing network - serving the residence halls -
unifying common dialing plans, while maintaining centralized systems

Business Case for VoIP at MTU

Network efficiencies are a key driver behind MTU's move to converge its voice
and data networks. Ipera 2000 provides the following enhancements:

- Reduce the work necessary for technicians to perform moves, additions, and
changes. Also, the ability to include user and voice-related data, such as
telephone and extension information, in the University's LDAP directory
server, will significantly reduce the time required to add new people and

- Flexibility and scalability inherent in Ipera 2000 enable future growth
without requiring a 'forklift' upgrade every few years. To meet business and
service needs, MTU will be able to economically increase the number of users,
and the voice support within the IP domain or the SX-2000 voice

- Common management for both voice and data networks will eliminate the number
and variations of work order processes, and significantly reduce information
management with a single common network.

- Provide the opportunity to extend voice services to remote campuses
(wireless and ISDN), and dial-in access points efficiently, using the existing
data network.

'MTU's IT department is committed to migrating to a fully converged voice/data
solution, and requires a voice solution that will leverage the significant
investment in its high-speed backbone and data network,' said Ken Dumont, vice
president, marketing, Mitel Communications Systems. 'The integrated, open,
standards-based products that Mitel offers enables MTU to build flexible,
scaleable, robust systems, and deliver innovative communications services to
its campus customers.'

support for LDAP all on one server. Ipera 2000 is capable of handling over 240
IP users and can also support a combination of IP and traditional digital

The Ipera 2000 architecture is based on a switched IP core with an embedded
TDM bus that provides native support for legacy TDM switches and devices,
without the need to employ multiple external gateways and conversion boxes
that add cost and complexity to the voice infrastructure. Ipera 2000 also has
an embedded H.323 gateway/gatekeeper in the NT server to support Symbol
wireless H323 NetVision handsets enabling VOIP in the wireless LAN.

Ipera 2000 is based on Mitel's Data Integrated Voice Applications
architecture.  This is an open architecture that ensures a seamless transition
for legacy platforms and provides the foundation for next-generation IP
telephony applications.  Mitel's IP architecture eliminates the forklift
upgrades currently required to implement IP telephony systems, allowing
customers to adopt converged solutions as dictated by their business needs.
