Mitel Unified Communicator Gets VMware View 5 Integration
VoIP and collaboration software vendor Mitel has been working with VMware to integrate its Unified Communicator (UC) Advanced client software with VMware View 5. At VMworld 2011, Mitel showed off the fruits of this work, which lets Mitel customers access voice telephony and video streaming as part of a VMware View session on a virtual desktop. The Mitel-VMware collaboration is an example of the symbiotic technology partnerships that are currently flourishing in the virtualization and cloud markets. Mitel gains from giving users greater flexibility, while VMware wins by adding more desktop-like functionality to its desktop virtualization offering.
