It was a busy week in the SIP Trunking sector. Here are some of the major stories from TMCnet.
IntelePeer has signed a contract with Conquest Technology Services to offer Microsoft Lync Unified Communications to a variety of business consumers. As part of the joint-venture, a program called, “Lync Experience Voice Now", has been made available to customers. Available for no extra cost for a month, it will offer UC headsets for 10 users, allowing business owners to experience Microsoft Lync. The trial pilot, consisting of IntelePeer's CoreCloud SIP trunking, will be provided and controlled by Conquest, and offer carrier services and PSTN access to customers.
In another story, Brekeke Software, a developer of SIP telephony software for enterprises and service providers, has released Brekeke SIP Server v3. Brekeke SIP Server provides a SIP-based communication platform for service providers and enterprises. The new Brekeke SIP Server v3 features include IPv6 support, enhanced product performance and a cleaner administrative product interface, while providing a smooth upgrade transition.
TMCnet also reported that West IP Communications, a provider of cloud-based IP communication applications and services, says its MaxxConnect SIP trunking services are now certified compatible with Microsoft Lync 2010. Microsoft Lync provides presence, instant messaging, voice, and ad-hoc collaboration, as well as online meeting capabilities through a single interface. The certification provides a greater variety of IP communications solutions to clients.
Also, TMCnet reports that via the CloudWorx Communications as a Service (CaaS) platform, IntelePeer provides service over both public and private Internet Protocol (IP) connections.
