Mitel Networks 6000 Small Business Applications Platform is a next-generation networking solution that dramatically increases security, reliability, and efficiency for the progressive small business professional.
A companion to Mitel Networks IP communications platforms, the 6000 is a Linux-based, turnkey network server solution and managed applications platform for a range of traditional IT and voice-centric applications targeted to small businesses. As a network server solution for small offices, the 6000 provides a secure firewall and Internet gateway, e-mail, file and print sharing, web hosting and more. The server is supplemented and managed by ServiceLink - a suite of network-delivered services that provides customers with critical security and system-management features such as virus protection, IPSEC virtual private networking and 24 x 7 monitoring. ServiceLink offers another exceptional benefit - the ability to automatically deliver and integrate new applications and software updates over the Internet to a customer's server with the click of a button, eliminating truck rolls. The entire system is pre-integrated with robust, Intel-based server hardware for a rapid out-of-the-box installation.
Mitel Networks 6000 Small Business Applications Platform is designed to fulfill two primary roles in the typical small business. First, as a companion to Mitel Networks IP communications solutions, it provides the base platform for a range of upcoming small-business applications such as integrated messaging, contact center solutions, etc. Second, the 6000 offers all of the key data-networking features and benefits typically associated with a small business server, enhanced by a suite of security and system-management services delivered from a Mitel Networks Applications Management Center.
The complete solution is tightly integrated, highly reliable and extremely easy to install and administer. In particular, ServiceLink reduces the time required to deploy the server, adds new functionality, and improves remote management by increasing the server's reliability and security. For end users, this translates into lower costs and less downtime. For Channel Partners, this improves customer retention, and makes it possible to manage large numbers of servers efficiently without frequent truck rolls. ServiceLink also provides a fast, efficient means of delivering software updates and new voice and data applications - which will be packaged as downloadable "software blades" - for small business customers.
The 6000 requires little or no IT expertise to install and manage, and builds on the proven track record of the Mitel Networks SME Server. The SME Server has won numerous industry awards and is currently deployed on more than 65,000 servers worldwide.
