Sylantro Partners with Microsoft, Offers Flash-based Voice Portal

Microsoft and Sylantro are working together to integrate the Sylantro Applications Feature Server with the Microsoft Solution for Hosted Messaging and Collaboration Version 3.0. This will provide integration between the Sylantro solution with Microsoft Connected Services Framework. Service providers will be able to offer a hosted Microsoft LCS solution that integrates with their deployed Sylantro application server, or they could also offer hosted telephony features to enterprises with their own Microsoft LCS deployment. The companies have also agreed to market and sell the combined Microsoft/Sylantro solution to service providers worldwide.

Sylantro also unveiled its Release 4.0 software, featuring the use of Macromedia Flash for dynamic voice portal. The company describes Flash-based portals as a major advance for usability of voice portals.

  • Sylantro has raised $97 million in funding from Bell Canada Enterprises, Argo Global Capital, Mayfield, Vanguard Ventures, Accel Partners, Bank of America Ventures, JP Morgan Chase and others.
