Lippis and Kerravala On Microsoft’s Move into IP Telephony
Zeus Kerravala and I discuss two large industry announcements. First, we dive into Microsoft’s new Unified Communications announcement which we believe will start the communication application wars between Microsoft and the IP telephony vendors such as Cisco, Avaya, Siemens, Nortel, et al. Then we weigh in on the pros and cons of the Nokia Siemens Networks joint venture and what will happen with their enterprise businesses. We check the mood of the market by reporting on the Cisco and Nortel user group conferences. We spend 25 minutes covering these important topics. Enjoy.
