Mitel Acquires ShoreTel in UCaaS Consolidation

Congratulations on joining forces – InSpeed looks forward to working with partners from both sides of the combined company.

InSpeed Networks, the only purpose-built SD-WAN solution that fixes voice and videoconferencing, congratulates ShoreTel on its successful sale, and Mitel for expanding its product offering. In the burgeoning world of UCaaS there are myriad options for business services and by offering both cloud- and premises-based solutions the combined entity will continue to fortify its leading position.

Consolidation in UCaaS - Mitel Acquires ShoreTel

The recent acquisition represents natural consolidation in the rapidly growing unified communication arena. A constant in any UCaaS solution is the dependence on a reliable network connection for high-quality performance. InSpeed effortlessly supports any and all UCaaS products by providing reliable, high-quality networks and is looking forward to working with both companies as partners.

“When I started ShoreTel more than 20 years ago, my goal was to replace silos of proprietary gear with software running on a PC,” said Ed Basart, CEO of InSpeed. “We at ShoreTel were the first with a Unified Communications product before the term was invented. Since those days, the market has developed into an interconnected ecosystem of business-critical applications and services. The recent acquisition of ShoreTel by Mitel represents another step in the market transition from equipment-based to service-based UCaaS.”
