(AVST), a leading provider of best-of-breed Unified Communications (UC) software, today announced that its CX-E platform has achieved Mitel®-Compatible Test (MCT) certification. This designation indicates that after a detailed validation process, CX-E has earned Mitel's highest offered level of integration certification.
