If you haven’t already heard the news, Cisco is out to buy video giant Tandberg for an estimated 3 billion dollars. Sounds like a good move for Cisco. Obviously, Tandberg offers Cisco some new market areas to enter and completes their video portfolio but part of me thinks this limits choice. So will Avaya buy Polycom to keep up with the Jones’s, who knows.
Second news is the release of the XMPP gateway by the OCS team. This is great step forward as XMPP gains more momentum. Certainly a smart move.
Third is the arrival of my Microsoft MVP award notice via email. The news just doesn’t stop coming.
