Mitel introduces IP business phones protected with antimicrobial technology

Mitel has 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 per cent.

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. The 6930t IP phone that offers mobile device integration, which 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. 

Tarun Loomba, Chief Product Officer, Mitel said, "as organisations continue to modernise and support new ways of working, they're looking for solutions and devices that can do more, are simple to use, and easy to maintain. The Mitel 6920t and 6930t IP phones were created with this in mind, using antimicrobial technology and packed with features for powering productivity and collaboration, whether that takes place between traditional work walls and shared spaces or home offices."
