Microsoft launches unified communications

Microsoft announced plans to work with partners, including Motorola, HP and Siemens to "break down today's silos of e-mail, instant messaging, mobile and voice over Internet protocol (VoIP) telephony, and audio-, video- and webconferencing." The unified communications initiative has many facets. On the wireless side of things: Motorola has signed on to deliver mobile devices and network hardware based on Office Communications Server 2007 and Office Communicator Mobile that integrate with Motorola's MotoPro Mobility Suite and Wireless Services Manager products. The goal is to enable users to communicate across heterogeneous access networks.
