Microsoft to buy Swiss VoIP Engineering Company
A Reuters newswire article, via Yahoo! News, reports that:
Microsoft Corp., the world's largest software maker, said on Wednesday it will acquire a privately held, Swiss-based company that develops technology to route and manage phone calls placed over the Web.
Microsoft did not disclose how much it paid for media-streams.com AG, a Zurich, Switzerland-based technology company with 23 employees.
Microsoft said it would integrate media-streams.com's technology with collaboration software in its Office division, which will eventually allow users to add incoming phone calls to conferences, route calls and host teleconferences between people in far-flung locations.
