RingCentral and Mitel Strategic Partnership

RingCentral & Mitel’s Strategic Partnership:
What you need to know!

RingCentral and Mitel announced a strategic partnership on November 9th, 2021, making RingCentral an industry leader in the cloud communications space and the exclusive UCaaS partner for all of Mitel’s cloud customer base.

So what does that mean?

RingCentral will acquire intellectual property rights and patents covering network and call management, security, and infrastructure from Mitel.

Plain and simple, Mitel is no longer selling cloud-based services as of June 30th, 2022, and instead will focus efforts on enhancing Mitel 3300 on-premise phone systems.

With RingCentral becoming the exclusive UCaaS partner for Mitel’s customer base of over 35 million users, the goal will be to provide an easy migration path to cloud communications.

Will I be forced to move to RingCentral?

The short answer is no, you’re not being forced to move to RingCentral. Yet moving forward, you will have to make a choice.

Your path forward may include:

  • Remaining on MiCloud Connect with direct support from a Mitel partner
  • Migrating to RingCentral MVP immediately or in a phased approach over time
  • Migrating to a different UCaaS solution such as 8×8 or Microsoft Teams
