Level 3 Communications, a session initiated protocol (SIP) trunking solution provider, recently announced that their SIP trunking voice solution built for enterprise customers received Microsoft qualification. This qualification assures customers that Level 3’s SIP trunking solution is compatible with Lync 2010. Lync 2010 is a next generation office communications server (OCS) that can handle multiple forms of communication from one user interface (UI). With Microsoft Lync 2010, customers can enhance or replace IP PBX (internet protocol private branch exchange) systems, which may lower overall telephony costs. When customers utilize Microsoft’s Lync 2010 and Level 3’s SIP trunking, they can leverage these unified communications (UC) to increase reliability, enable efficiency, increase performance, and realize greater productivity.
