Sun is getting into the unified communications game with the aid of Mitel. This is great as IBM is big player in the space and having an alternative vendor like SUN is great for companies who are looking for options.
Meed I even mention how big a role Microsoft is playing in this space?
As you may recall, I covered Sun’s offerings in communications and the expanding Mitel relationship about a year ago.
What is unknown is whether SUN will be looking to work with other vendors besides Mitel on this initiative.
This linux-based solution starts at $9,000 and can support up to 5,000 phones per server.
