SIP Trunking in Sweden for Office Communications Server 2007 R2

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.

Windows Phone 7 Series – will drive deeper telco and UC vendor integration?

Microsoft has finally announced Windows 7 Phone Series, here´s the official launch site http://bit.ly/9qirh8

This is good news for Microsoft employees and my old colleagues @Avande, why you may ask? Well they won´t have to sneak with their unsupported iPhone´s if they can get a good user experience and functionality in a Windows Phone 7 device.  It´s my opinion that the actual device is getting less important, the phone operating system and even more the App Store / Market Place is of more importance. HTC can forget buiding their own user interface, this is on Microsoft´s table. HTC and all the other manufacurers will build hardware based on Microsoft´s spec.

I can´t wait to see the new Office Communicator client for Windows 7 Phone Series, will it ship with Office Communications Server 2010 (a.k.a. Wave 14). I hope that UClarity will be able to demo this soon!

When will Telia Sonera / Tre / Telenor ship business phones with Windows Phone 7? I hope that the level of mobile service integration between telco´s and UC vendors can take a leap forward with new innovative OS.

This is a picture of the Windows Phone 7 Marketplace:

Windows 7 Phone includes XBOX Live and Experience. In my ears, this sounds like a flirt with the trend of incorperating consumer “look and feel” into professional devices. The design of the OS is very clean and navigation is done in a smooth way, a team from Nike has moved to Microsoft and this is the result:
