AudioCodes goes SIP wild with support for Microsoft OCS, Skype

AudioCodes (www.audiocodes.com) has gone SIP wild over the past two weeks, announcing support for Microsoft Office Communications Server (OCS) and Skype for SIP.

Last week, the company announced its SIP Phone Support (SPS) for Microsoft Unified Communications, enabling “economically affordable” connections to Microsoft OCS via standard SIP IP phones. A direct connection to OCS is supported for both currently installed phones and newer models, as well as connecting mobile phones using AudioCodes’ Mobile clients with AudioCodes gateway technology.

Phone supported by SIP include (what else?) AudioCodes’ 300HD family of HD IP phones, along with other third-party phones, such as Cisco, Avaya, Aastra, Polycom and other “standards-based SIP phones.”

This week, the AudioCodes Mediant 1000 Multi-Service Business Gateway has been certified for interoperability with Skype for SIP, so customers/owners can now direct outbound calls through Skype and can also receive inbound calls from Skype users.

AudioCodes likely has more Skype tricks up its sleeve to announce in the future. The company hinted that it would incorporate support for Skype’s SILK codec into handsets, with availability later this year.
