A new download from Microsoft that is really helpful if you’re going to set up Microsoft Communication Server “14” with a Acme Packet Net-Net Session Director (Net-Net SD) Session Border Controller (SBC)
“Microsoft Communications Server “14” (CS “14”) offers the ability to connect to Internet telephony service providers (ITSP) using an IP-based SIP trunk. This reduces the cost and complexity of extending an enterprise’s telephony system outside its network borders. Acme Packet Net-Net Session Director (Net-Net SD) Session Border Controllers (SBCs) play an important role in SIP Trunking as they are used by many ITSPs as part of their SIP trunking infrastructure.
This step-by-step deployment guide has been prepared for the IP Telephony Service Provider as a means of ensuring that SIP trunking between CS “14” and Acme Packet SBCs is configured in the optimal manner. This guide can be used to support the SIP trunking reference topologies that are documented by Microsoft and Acme Packet in this TechNet article: Office Communications Server 2007 R2 Support for Acme Packet Session Border Controllers.”
The much anticipated release of Office Communication Server is coming closer!
As soon as it´s on my hard drive I´ll install it in UClarity´s live demo environment 🙂
You can expect a blog post on how to integrate Office Communication Server 2010, Exchange Server 2010, SharePoint Server 2010. Until then, read more about the upcoming beta release at TMCnet.com:
“The highly anticipated Microsoft (News – Alert) Office Communications Server 2010 is set to release for the last calendar quarter of 2010, but the company had promised a beta version for testers by the end of March. As captured in this ZDnet blog, that projected date may be optimistic.
Microsoft officials are now saying the beta version of its Unified Communications (News – Alert) ‘Wave 14’ suite may be ready by early April and now those wanting to get their hands on the release are left wondering exactly when to expect a demo”
You should not drive and use your mobile phone without a headset. What about driving and making a communicator call or attending a Microsoft Live meeting using the new Windows XP (!) touchscreen-based rear seat entertainment system?
A Windows touchscreen-based rear seat entertainment system with windows and a 3G / 4G connection gives you endless possibilities!
- Listening to Spotify
- Streaming video to your kids in the back seat
- Making VoIP calls with Skype or other VoIP software such as Microsoft Office Communicator
- Use your imagination 🙂
Named the RSEi-500, the unit is based around a touchscreen of unspecified size, and packs a 500GB hard drive for media storage, a DVD player, USB and A/V inputs, and built-in WiFi to let you pair it with a Sprint OverDrive or other mobile hotspot

I´ve recently asked Microsoft Sweden which MS approved/certified SIP Trunk providers that can deliver as of today.
Interoute can deliver a SIP Trunk as of today. TeliaSonera are in the process of getting certified but are not there yet.
If you have more information of swedish SIP Trunk providers that supports Office Communications Server 2007 R2, please comment this article.
