I've written about
Blue Jeans Network's multipoint telepresence solution, which bridges H.323 and SIP end-points, PSTN — and even Skype, with the goal of allowing users to connect everything from high-end video telepresence systems like Tandberg/Cisco and Lifesize to web cams running Skype
to desktop IP videophones from Polycom, Grandstream, Cisco, and others. I mentioned back in May
they were working on adding Microsoft
Lync support. Well, now they have it.
According to a TMCnet article
, it is showcasing “the industry’s first video conferencing interoperability between Skype and Microsoft Lync” at The Enterprise 2.0 Conference held at Santa Clara, California, November 14-17.
The new Blue Jeans individual plans include: $69 per month individual plan for 500 minutes (less than 14 cents per minute), $99 per month individual plan for 1,000 minutes (less than 10 cents per minute), and $199 per month individual plan for unlimited minutes (as little as 1 cent per minute).
I'll have to review it again and test the Microsoft Lync to Skype interoperability. Good stuff!
