AT&T expanded its global strategic relationship with Microsoft, adding Microsoft Lync to its Unified Communications collaboration portfolio. The addition will allow for collaboration in real time on documents and apps; telepresence, high-def video conferencing and virtual meetings; instant messaging; and a range of enterprise voice capabilities. AT&T also plans to open its Application Programming Interface (API) to Microsoft Lync platform users, allowing developers to build custom mobile and Web-based business apps. AT&T enterprise customers can run Lync in their own on-premise datacenter, have it hosted by AT&T or have it be part of the Microsoft Office 365 service from AT&T.
