Microsoft announces Windows Mobile client for Live Communications Server 2005
Posted on 19-Apr-2005 20:07 | Filed under: News



Microsoft Corp. is extending Microsoft Office Live Communications Server 2005 capabilities to mobile devices, enabling companies to deploy trusted instant messaging (IM) and presence-enabled solutions. As an initial step, the company unveiled plans to deliver a new mobile Live Communications Server 2005 client, for Windows Mobile-based devices.

Based on the user interface of the Microsoft Office Communicator 2005 messaging client, the new Windows Mobile client is designed to provide information workers with mobile collaboration experience through native integration of mobile applications with enterprise-grade, real-time communications tools.

The company says "... extending Live Communications Server to mobile devices furthers Microsoft's vision for integrated communications, described by Bill Gates at the Microsoft RTC unified launch event March 8 as giving information workers access to presence and unified modes of communication -- e-mail, phone, instant messaging (IM), short message service (SMS), videoconferencing and webconferencing -- across a variety of form factors (PC, desk phone, mobile device) and wired or wireless networks."

With beta availability expected in the second half of 2005, the Windows Mobile client will be a premier mobile solution combining the integrated benefits of Windows Mobile and Live Communications Server 2005 and the look and feel of the recently announced Microsoft Office Communicator 2005.

Businesses running Live Communications Server 2005 and the new Windows Mobile client will have a more secure and robust way to give mobile workers access to integrated Microsoft Office real-time communications tools, such as those that allow them to share rich presence information, make use of multiple modes of real-time communication from one centralized console, and set their own controls on how communications are routed based on their personal preferences.

The new Windows Mobile client with Live Communications Server 2005 will enable a number of new benefits for mobile workers, including access to corporate IM system and presence-sharing capabilities on a wide variety of Windows Mobile-powered devices operating on all types of wireless networks supported by Windows Mobile devices, including Wi-Fi, GSM and CDMA.

Developers can build mobile solutions to run with the Live Communications Server 2005 using the full-featured client and server application programming interfaces (APIs) that span the platform as well as standards-based protocol-level integration via SIP, SIMPLE and CSTA over SIP. Microsoft is expanding its Technology Adopter Program (TAP) for Live Communications Server to include mobile developers and creating new opportunities for developers through the following:
