Microsoft, Nortel announce new UC solutions

Microsoft and Nortel continued their partnership in the unified communications space on Tuesday with the announcement of four new joint UC solutions.

Nortel Converged Office will combine Nortel’s Communication Server 1000 IP-PBX with Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007.

The Nortel UC Integrated Branch will also be integrated with Office Communications Server 2007 in order to deploy WAN routing, Ethernet switching, security, and VoIP into remote sites.

The cross-platform capabilities will also be apparent in the Nortel and Microsoft Carrier Hosted UC Solution for hosting unified communications, giving SMBs instant messaging, VoIP, click to call, and video conferencing through the Microsoft Office Communicator 2007.

Nortel’s Multimedia Conferencing, version 5.0 is now available for the Microsoft Communications Server 2007.

The partnership will give Nortel a trusted, well-understood front end from which to offer large and small companies their UC infrastructure products.
