Mitel has acquired the business assets of troubled Toshiba Unified Communications Systems.
Mitel has confirmed that there will be ongoing access to existing Toshiba products and services and that a number of Toshiba sales, support and R&D employees will join the Canadian vendor to maintain support for existing Toshiba customers and partners.
The transaction also includes a transition services agreement to provide product and service continuity.
The deal reflects Mitel's strategy to focus on expanding its position in the UCC market.
"In a rapidly changing and opportunity rich technology landscape, Mitel is helping customers find a seamless path forward whether in the cloud, on premise or a hybrid of both," said Rich McBee, CEO of Mitel.
