Microsoft Unveils "Response Point" VoIP for SMBs

Microsoft unveiled a small-business IP phone system, code-named "Response Point" that includes a voice-activated user interface. Now in beta testing, "Response Point" will be generally available later this year in three models: D-Link DVX-2000, Quanta Syspine and Uniden Evolo.

Microsoft said its "Response Point" phone system software will use voice commands and speech-enabled auto-attendant capabilities to deliver a vastly improved user experience for an SMB phone system. In addition to "Response Point," Microsoft delivers an extensible, software-based VoIP foundation through Office Communications Server 2007 and Office Communicator 2007. Microsoft will distribute the public beta versions of Communications Server 2007 and Communicator 2007 later this month. The Beta 2 release of "Response Point" is scheduled for early April.
