Mitel Introduces First-of-their-Kind IP Business Phones Featuring Plastics Protected with Antimicrobial Technology

Mitel®, a global leader in business communications, today announced the launch of the Mitel 6920t and 6930t IP phones built from plastics protected with BioCote® antimicrobial technology. The devices feature plastics with surfaces that are treated with a silver-based compound that when tested against certain viruses and bacteria is shown to inhibit their growth by up to 99.9 percent.*

Mitel has also redesigned the handset areas that present the highest risk of potential dirt, germ and grime collection to make the handset easier to clean, facilitating a more hygienic device. This includes removing ribs on the back side of the handset, eliminating crevices from the microphone grille, and hard-wiring the cord to the handset to eliminate the jack receptacle.

The new business phones are also engineered with advanced tools for today’s power user. For example, the 6930t IP phone offers mobile device integration, which seamlessly connects mobile phone call audio, contact and call log information to the desktop phone, allowing calls to the mobile phone to be answered on the 6930t. With Bluetooth functionality, many mobile phone features are also accessible on the desk phone, making the 6930t an invaluable companion to the user’s smartphone. […]
