Microsoft and Research In Motion to bring enterprise IM to BlackBerry
Posted on 19-Apr-2005 20:02. | Tags Filed under: News.



Microsoft Corp. and Research In Motion (RIM) are working together to extend enterprise instant messaging (IM) and presence to BlackBerry subscribers through connectivity with Microsoft Office Live Communications Server 2005 and BlackBerry Enterprise Server.

Live Communications Server is used to deploy enterprise-grade IM and presence capabilities across networks and through federated connections with other organizations running Live Communications Server. Based on Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) and SIP for Instant Messaging and Presence Leveraging Extensions (SIMPLE) standards, Live Communications Server provides a platform for the development of custom real-time communications solutions that span PC networks, desk phone systems and mobile devices.

The combined Microsoft-RIM solution is designed to extend Live Communications Server features to employees using BlackBerry, enabling mobile users to transmit instant messages and share presence-based information to maintain real-time connectivity with colleagues, partners and customers while they are away from the office.

RIM is working to develop a Live Communications Server Client for BlackBerry that provides security-enhanced Live Communications Server IM connectivity between mobile BlackBerry users and their Live Communications Server enterprise deployment. Through this agreement, Microsoft and RIM plan to extend the benefits of Live Communications Server to the many companies and government organizations using BlackBerry around the world.

RIM expects to have product availability by the end of the year, with a trial in September 2005.
