Mitel Networks To Host Leading Global SIP Interoperability Event 

SIPit 13 to showcase the interoperability and implementations of Session
Initiation Protocol (SIP) from over 60 companies 

OTTAWA, CANADA, March 11, 2003 - Mitel Networks, a market-leader in voice,
video, and data convergence over broadband networks, today announced that it
will host and sponsor the 13th annual SIPit, a global SIP interoperability
testing event.  The event will take place August 18 to 23 at the Brookstreet
Hotel in Ottawa, Canada and attract over 60 vendors and 150 engineers from
around the globe.  SIPit is an international event endorsed by the SIP Forum
and overseen by the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF).  SIPit provides
a critical industry benchmark in the drive to make SIP the defacto standard
for real-time Internet communication services.  SIP is an open,
Internet-genuine protocol for establishing and managing multi-party,
mixed-media sessions over converged networks.

The purpose of SIPit is to test the interoperability of SIP implementations
and products and perform testing on advanced features and functionality.
Vendors then have the opportunity to address any incompatibilities for their
commercial releases.  The testing at SIPit also accelerates the drive
towards new drafts of the SIP specification based on new requirements and
findings at the event.  SIPit is open exclusively to vendors offering
SIP-based solutions that will see market availability and is not an
exhibition, public demonstration, conference or workshop.

"The promise of SIP to enable businesses the choice and flexibility of true
open interoperability in a multi-vendor environment will gain velocity as
manufacturers collaborate in testing their standards based solutions," said
Paul Butcher, Chief Operating Officer, Mitel Networks. "The opportunity to
test our products at SIPit, with the devices and services of over 60 of the
world's leading implementers, provides a tremendous opportunity to measure
the interoperability of our own SIP-based solutions and of the industry as a

An early supporter of SIP, Mitel Networks has participated in the previous
six SIPit events.  At SIPit13 Mitel Networks will test a range of SIP-based
desktop devices and communications platforms including the 5055 SIP Phone
and the 3050 Integrated Communications Platform.
