ShoreTel was built from a clean sheet of paper focusing only on the VoIP marketplace. Well what does this mean for you? It means that you don’t have to worry about integrating legacy TDM/Digital technology into the IP world. Other manufacturers have to worry about how they transition their older customers into the newer VoIP universe without rustling any feathers. Therefore they keep many things similar to their older units preventing change and the endless possibilities that new technology brings.

The architecture, different from most, conveys that of a single image. If you have 1 site or 100 the system is managed and supported as one. Meaning your HQ can house all the main phone system equipment, while the other sites only need a simple ½ U switch, or now even just virtual space in your VMware to manage call control. All satellite locations can still utilizes all the features of the HQ.

This single image makes it very easy to employ no single point of failure without the need to duplicate switches and servers for redundancy. With limited equipment required at each site this lowers support and management costs, contributing to one of the many factors that result in the lowest TCO in the industry proven by independent research. Never will you have to endure a forklift upgrade as your business grows from 5 to 5,000 employees or 5 to 500 sites. See if any other vendor can make that guarantee.

Your entire 99.999% reliable ShoreTel network can be managed anywhere with web access. If you don’t believe you have the staff on hand to administer the system, no problem, as ATI can take care of all your day to day operations remotely from our HQ’s in Naperville. However with ShoreTel’s intuitive graphical user interface & Diagnostics and Monitoring tool, detailed info with simplicity can be obtained like never before.

Now that you have the peace of mind that a ShoreTel system can bring you, it’s time to think about the technology that can really empower your employees to become more efficient.

Onsite vs. Cloud – What’s right for your business?

For business communications leader Mitel, it wasn’t enough to rest on the laurels of its popular 14.2 onsite platform. Instead, it has added new code, new features and new hardware to create an even better onsite experience, called Connect. But with cloud technologies — such as Mitel’s Connect Cloud — getting all the attention in recent months, how do you know if staying on-premises is the right choice for your company?
Start with a few questions:
  • Do you prefer unified communications managed off site or handled by your expert team of highly skilled IT pros?

  • Is the total cost of ownership (TCO) top of mind when it comes to communications solutions? Do CAPEX benefits outweigh OPEX costs?

  • Are you happy with your current infrastructure and want to leverage its maximum impact?

  • Is your business mostly local or are you running international locations that may lie beyond the reach of the cloud?

  • Do you have access to high-speed Internet or is substantial bandwidth not available?

  • Are you looking to migrate your communications off site or has on-premises always delivered reliable performance for your company?


If you prefer to stay local, service your own hardware and own the infrastructure you use, then Mitel Connect Onsite backed by ati’s robust and reliable service may be the best fit for your organization.
Why Choose Mitel’s Onsite Solution?

Despite the growing impact of cloud computing and hybrid solutions, there are a number of compelling reasons to consider onsite communications solutions, including:
  • Integration — Why pay for new hardware if you don’t need to? With ShoreTel’s onsite offerings, purchase only what makes sense and then integrate it with existing tools.

  • Security — While cloud-based solutions have markedly improved their security posture, there’s no substitute for the expert knowledge of onsite IT pros who have experience with your system. With ShoreTel Connect Onsite, you own and secure everything that powers your communications solution.

  • Response — If something goes wrong — servers fail or security is compromised — response time is critical. While 24/7 service is now the mandate of providers like ATI, there’s something to be said for in-house oversight; you know your system inside and out and can decide what type of security response is the most appropriate.

  • Lifecycle management — What happens when hardware is ready to be de-commissioned? If you’re dealing with hybrid solutions, it can be complicated to ensure a smooth changeover and no service interruptions. When you own and maintain all hardware, however, you can plan for failure and ensure you always have the right resources on hand.

  • Control — Between audio calls, video chat and multimedia data streams, your unified communications (UC) solution requires in-depth knowledge to properly manage and maintain. By combining best-of-breed hardware from ShoreTel and the expertise of your onsite IT professionals, you get the best of both worlds: total control over all business communications backed by rock-solid infrastructure.


With ShoreTel Connect Onsite, your company can leverage the power of legacy systems and in-house expertise without missing out on key features such as 99.999 percent uptime, single image management, powerful collaboration tools and advanced applications such as call recording, virtualization and CRM integration.
