Dallas, TX, USA, June 7, 2016 -- Mitel (Nasdaq:MITL) (TSX:MNW), a global provider in real-time business, cloud and mobile communications, has solidified its 5G program, announced earlier this year, with participation in the initial round of funding of the newly created Ranzure Networks. With a seed round of funding from Mitel and other investors, including LiveOak Venture Partners, Ranzure Networks will license Mitel Mobile technology in the area of Evolved Packet Core to support service providers as they build 5G networks for the Internet of Things.

"We believe that satisfying varying needs of billions of devices now requires a flexible Radio Access Network that is easy to deploy, operate and customize to meet the needs of each device. Ranzure will bring flexible cloud technologies to radio access networks."
