Bouygues Telecom has selected Mitel’s unified communications as a service platform to boost its offering to the enterprise market in France.

The operator will leverage Mitel’s MiCloud solution, which offers functionality including voice, video and collaboration tools with telepresence, chat, audio and videoconferencing capabilities, as well as screen and desktop sharing.

Bouygues Telecom Enterprise has two million corporate users, including those from Air France, La Poste, Total and Lafarge.

The deal will enable the company to improve its offering to medium and large businesses in particular, Mitel said.

"We're moving to a mobile-first world for enterprises, workers and consumers,” said Bernard Etchenagucia, VP Sales, Southern Europe, and Managing Director, Mitel France.

“Demand for unified and cloud communications keeps growing.

"As such, partnering with Bouygues Telecom Entreprises will help their customers seamlessly tie mobile and office environments together for greater speed and simplicity."

Bouygues Telecom, which has 14 million customers, does not break out the performance of its enterprise arm.

The operator's revenues rose six percent to €2.3 billion in the first half of the year.

Mitel, meanwhile, has spent almost $2 billion on acquiring rival Polycom in April.

The deal created the global market leader in business cloud communications and conference phones, and number two in video conferencing.
