Verizon Business announced on Monday—at VoiceCon in Orlando—that it has been named as a Microsoft SIP Trunking partner. Henceforth, Verizon customers will be able to immediately make use of the advanced communications features of Microsoft Office Communications Server (OCS) 2007 R2. Likewise organizations that have deployed OCS can now avail themselves of Verizon's voice over IP services for communications outside the home network.

The move is a further expansion of a long-standing partnership between the two companies dating back to 2004.

"We are excited that Verizon IP Trunking services are qualified for use with Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007 R2. Verizon IP Trunking services deliver cost savings and improved IT telephony resource management," Yancey Smith, director of communications server product management at Microsoft, said in an e-mail to InternetNews.com.
