Mitel Networks Corp. has added an optional Line Interface Module for local PSTN connectivity, remote video conferencing, local voice streaming for remote offices, and new reporting capabilities to its TeleWorker Solution offering.

“The build-out of low cost broadband IP networks has dramatically enhanced the services than can be extended to remote staff, whether they are working from home or a small branch office anywhere in the world,” said Don Smith, CEO of Mitel.

“Mitel Teleworker Solution enhancements now offer businesses the ability to cost-effectively move beyond the basic teleworker paradigm.”

Extending advanced video and multimedia collaboration features to the edge of the communications environment enables remote workers to substantially increase their efficiency and productivity when working out of the office.

The Line Interface Module integrates into the teleworker phone and provides a separate connection to an analog line such as that included with a DSL service.

In the event of a wide area network failure the phone automatically uses the PSTN to provide continued basic telephony until service in restored.
