Microsoft’s corporate IM goes mobile

Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 6:20 pm

The new product, called Microsoft Office Communicator Mobile, runs on the Microsoft Office Live Communications Server 2005. The new mobile client is integrated with the desktop version of the software, allowing workers on the go to communicate via IM even when they are away from their desks.

Not only does the mobile product provide secure instant messaging, it also offers integrated voice over Internet Protocol services and “presence” features that let other people see whether or not someone is online, on the phone or out of the office.

“The new client is a key component of Microsoft’s vision for unified communications, putting people at the center and enabling information workers to have access to real-time communications capabilities virtually anytime, anywhere, on any device,” Gurdeep Pall, corporate vice president for the Unified Communications Group at Microsoft, said in a statement released during the second full day of 3GSM activities.

Communicator Mobile is expected to be available for download for Live Communication Server customers within 60 days.
