AT&T this week announced a suite of IP services that will include voice, conferencing, messaging and video.
The first of its Dynamic Network Applications (DNA) is AT&T Voice DNA, a network-based hosted IP PBX service similar to traditional Centrex offerings that LECs have offered for years.
AT&T, which introduced the offerings at Interop in Las Vegas, hinted about its plans last month.
Voice DNA will allow users to upgrade to an IP PBX environment without having to deploy or manage voice switches on site. The service offers an automated attendant, locate-me feature, the ability to have multiple phones ring for a single user, on-demand audio conferencing and integration with Microsoft Outlook (bold added by me).
Good to also see VOIP/IP Telephony developments on the hosting front. Defenitly integration with Microsoft tools such as Outlook is good :-). I wonder if there’s any developments on the integration of LCS 2005 in this intiative. Will try and catch up on additional information of this.
