Today, the face and nature of the traditional office work place is changing with increasing requirements for employee mobility and work location flexibility. To ensure enhanced productivity, companies are leveraging their investments in a Mitel IP PBX by extending unified communications capabilities over the Internet to remote or home workers via IP phones, soft phones and Wi-Fi/dual-mode phones. However, opening up the company’s internal network to allow employees to connect from anywhere, any time (from hotspots, hotels and home offices) raises a host of security concerns.
To ensure the deployment of secure internal and external workspaces, the Mitel MiVoice Border Gateway provides comprehensive threat protection, strict access control, and privacy in a single server. This solution securely enables remote employees to work and collaborate productively by having a complete in-office unified communications experience without being physically in the office.
The MiVoice Border Gateway is the next step in the evolution of the Mitel Teleworker Solution for businesses of all sizes and Service Providers. MiVoice Border Gateway is a platform which enables the secure deployment of multiple services in a number of network edge scenarios:
- Teleworker Service
A secure plug & play solution for remote workers;
- SIP Trunk Proxy Service
Serves a SIP-aware firewall at the edge of the company network and eliminates the need for 3rd party firewall devices from other vendors, simplifying configuration and deployment; and
- Application Web Proxy Service
Enables trusted connectivity between company LAN and the Public Internet to provide secure access for Mitel Unified Communications via Mitel MiCollab.
