Microsoft Corp. announced that it is providing software-based solutions telecommunications operators require to deliver a variety of services over Internet protocol, or SoIP.
With the addition of voice over IP (VoIP) capabilities to its solution set, Microsoft offers a portfolio of solutions that allow service providers to build, manage and combine voice, video and data services.
The company is working to offer telecommunications providers software-based solutions that facilitate the delivery of revenue-generating services over IP including data, video and voice.
For data services Microsoft delivers a range of data solutions that carriers can host in themselves and offer to consumers and enterprise. This includes its Solution for Hosted Messaging and Collaboration, a hosted version of Microsoft’s family of server products like Microsoft Exchange Server 2003, Live Communications Server 2005 and Windows SharePoint Services.
In the video services area, the company is offering a family of software solutions that enable advanced digital TV services for broadcast and broadband networks.
Voice services will be covered with the addition of VoIP capabilities to the Microsoft Solution for Hosted Messaging and Collaboration by integrating it with Sylantro Systems’ Application Feature Server. The resulting product will enable service providers to offer subscribers sophisticated yet easy-to-use VoIP, e-mail, collaboration, presence, instant messaging and desktop services.
