OTTAWA, Feb. 23, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mitel® (Nasdaq:MITL) (TSX:MNW), a global leader in real-time business, cloud and mobile communications, today announced deployment of its voice and video over LTE solution to support Smartfren’s recently announced Andromax LTE mobile device launch. Smartfren will work closely with Mitel on the rapid rollout of new mobile services starting in 2016. Indonesia is the fifth geography to introduce VoLTE from Mitel including major service launches in North America with T-Mobile US and in Europe with 3UK.

The speed of Smartfren’s 4G LTE deployment has eclipsed the rollout in other regions, highlighting the enormous potential for software-based mobile solutions across Asia. As mobile operators face intense competition from disruptive market players and over-the-top application services, Mitel's software-only VoLTE solution allows rapid deployment optimized for driving continuous service innovation and new revenue opportunities. The solution also supports multi-device service delivery giving operators the ability to offer a richer suite of integrated IP services across all access points and devices, regardless of access network technology.

Since 2012 Mitel has supported the introduction of milestone mobile deployments including the first VoLTE, first North American Rich Communications Services (RCS), first IMS VoWiFi, and first network functions virtualization (NFV)-based IMS implementation. With the Smartfren launch in Indonesia, Mitel adds to the list with the first nationwide VoLTE service launch in the region.

Alvogen CEO Robert Wessman speaks exclusively to World Finance about new opportunities in generic pharmaceuticals22.1.2018 11:51Pressemelding

LONDON, Jan. 22, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Industry disruptor Robert Wessman, the CEO of rapidly growing generic pharmaceuticals company Alvogen, shares his thoughts on the latest market trends in the new edition of World Finance magazine. Only different in name and price, generic pharmaceuticals in the US are a whopping 50 to 70 percent less expensive than their branded equivalents. Unsurprisingly, in an era of ever-rising medical costs, a growing number of governmental entities and corporations are now choosing generics over branded pharmaceuticals. For some time, just a handful of big-name organisations dominated this nascent market. But, following its peak in 2015, over-valuations have prompted vulnerability, opening the door for new, more nimble competitors to join and disrupt the market. Among this innovative group of 'next generation' pharmaceutical companies is Reykjavik-based Alvogen. Though it was only established in 2009, this global-facing organisation now boasts an annual t
