Microsoft Cites Momentum for Office Communications Server 2007

Microsoft reported that over the past eight weeks more than 50,000 people have downloaded the beta version of Office Communications Server 2007 and Office Communicator 2007.

In addition, in the two months since Microsoft published the interoperability specification, networking companies such as Alcatel-Lucent, Avaya, Cisco Systems, Ericsson, Genesys Telecommunications Laboratories, Mitel Networks, NEC, Nortel Networks and Siemens Enterprise Communications, and gateway providers AudioCodes, Dialogic and Quintum Technologies have stated their support for the interoperability specification for Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007.

"As the traditional business telecommunications model evolves, businesses are seeking guidance for the best way to leverage their existing assets as they deploy unified communications," said Gurdeep Singh Pall, corporate vice president, Unified Communications Group at Microsoft. "This broad industry support will give business the assurance that Microsoft's unified communications software will work with the applications and networks they have today."
