Microsoft adds VoIP to Office

VoIP speciaist acquired to add to Office suite

Microsoft is to buy, a Swiss software company that specialises in voice-over-IP applications. Media-streams’ technology will be added to Microsoft’s Office Live platform, which already supports real-time communications via channels such as instant messaging.

Media-streams will become part of Microsoft’s real-time collaboration business group, which is led by Microsoft corporate vice president Anoop Gupta.

Microsoft will continue to offer Media-streams’ software on a stand-alone basis and existing customers should see no immediate impact from the acquisition, Media-streams says. The financial terms of the sale were not disclosed.
