SUNNYVALE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mitel®, a global leader in business communications, announced today its next-generation 6900w IP desk phone series has received separate internationally recognized certifications from ENERGY STAR® and Wi-Fi CERTIFIED™. These certifications provide independently verified assurances to partners, customers, and end-users that Mitel’s phones meet or exceed industry-agreed energy efficiency and interoperability standards.
“We are very pleased the 6900w series has received these highly regarded certifications from ENERGY STAR® and Wi-Fi CERTIFIED™,” said Martin Bitzinger, SVP of product management at Mitel. “Enhancing energy efficiency and ensuring compatibility are crucial objectives for organizations globally, especially with a hybrid workplace. These certifications emphasize Mitel's commitment to providing world-class products that give customers the flexibility to find a solution that works for their organization while also supporting a more sustainable world."
"Desktop phones remain an important part of the unified communications landscape with almost 67% of companies continuing to use them," says Irwin Lazar, president and principal analyst with Metrigy. "By achieving these energy efficiency and interoperability certifications for its new 6900w, Mitel is well-positioned to support both upgrading of existing and growth of new desktop phone deployments by improving energy efficiency and eliminating interoperability concerns. These features give Mitel an edge over competitors who do not support these certifications."
By achieving ENERGY STAR® certification, the 6900w series IP phones passed strict United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) criteria for reducing energy and CO2 emissions. Considered the gold standard for energy efficiency certification, this achievement gives customers confidence products sporting the label not only use less energy but can also help reduce their overall carbon footprint.
