Dialogic to Build Microsoft UC Support
Dialogic has expanded its support for Microsoft unified communications solutions with new gateway product lines and capabilities to support Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007.
Specifically for the upcoming unified communications release, Dialogic is readying a new series of gateways capable of hosting one of the server elements required for the Office Communications Server 2007 solution. It is adding on it current Media Gateway product lines with new gateway platforms and features that deliver VoIP security, superior audio quality, ease-of-use and manageability.
The new gateways will debut the first hybrid architecture designed as integrated systems specifically for the Microsoft unified communications environment. Capable of hosting server software on-board, these hybrid gateways reduce the total number of servers required in the solution set. The new gateway series is scheduled for general availability early in the third quarter.
"Unified communications is coming fast on the heels of the transition from traditional circuit-switched telephony to IP telephony," said Eric Swift, senior director of product management for the Unified Communications Group at Microsoft. "We see Dialogic as playing a critical role in providing media gateways necessary to connect and navigate disparate networks and legacy systems to help customers unlock the potential of unified communications."
