The Ottawa Sun looks a little more closely at Mitel's e-smith
"Mitel was looking for stable, user-friendly network
server software and e-smith had just that. Laver said Mitel aims to
replace the Private Branch Exchange (PBX) software that made the
company famous with a Linux-based Internet protocol version that
will handle voice, video and data communications -- a sort of
"telephone network server," much like the network servers that
handle most firms' computers.
The new merger will allow the company to go even further in
research and development, Laver said, because while other companies
are slashing, Matthews has increased research and development
spending by 50 per cent.
"It's no secret, this is not a happy time in the technology
sector. Being part of the Mitel family is great for e-smith."
