OTTAWA, ON — Communications system provider Mitel Networks has signed on to provide a communication system for the Arctic Winter Games, being held March 17-21 in Nunavut, Canada. The Games, co-hosted by Iqaluit and Nuuk, Greenland, are a prestigious multi-national, multi-cultural, multi-sport event held in northern Canada.
Mitel is providing a system that will allow for one centralized number and enable communication over a wide area network (WAN). The system provides users with a simple method of communicating with one-number access that connects five athletic venues via fiber-optic cable or copper trunking. This will allow the Games’ operation centre and mobile staff to keep in constant contact.
Mitel Networks joins 18 other business and government supporters including its customers, Frobisher Inn and the City of Iqaluit, as supporters to this year’s games. Mitel Networks, along with channel partner NorthwesTel, secured the new territory’s telephony contract two years ago.
The 2002 Games will reach nearly a million people from communities across Canada, Greenland, Russia and the U.S.
