Frontier Communications Corp. (NASDAQ: FTR) said that Lincoln Trail College, an Illinois Eastern Community College, has implemented the latest business communications solutions from Mitel (NASDAQ: MITL) (TSX: MNW) and to improve its course offerings.
The curriculum is built around Mitel´s MiVoice IP phone platform and provides students with core skills based on the most current business communications technology.
Last year, Frontier and Mitel deployed a business communications system built on MiVoice and MiCollab conferencing and collaboration solutions for LTC to support operations. The success of that program led LTC to explore ways to better prepare students for careers in business communications. As a result, the college expanded its information technology education program to include business communications courses based on the Mitel solutions implemented by Frontier.
Frontier serves commercial customers by leveraging existing local exchange carrier capabilities with state-of-the-art technology from Mitel. The joint solution enables LTC to provide business communications courses, preparing students for work situations that range from small to medium size businesses up to enterprise corporations. Frontier works with Mitel and LTC to maintain the most current solutions for students.
Lincoln Trail College has been recognized for two years by the Aspen Institute for being one of the top 120 community colleges in the nation for completion rates and academic and workforce outcomes.
