IntelePeer Earns Qualification to Provide SIP Trunking Services for Microsoft Office Communications Online

IntelePeer's Qualification Ensures Seamless SIP Trunking Connections With Microsoft Office Communications Online, Part of Microsoft Online Services

SAN MATEO, CA--(Marketwire - February 1, 2011) - IntelePeer Inc. (www.intelepeer.com), a leader in the delivery of communications via cloud-based infrastructure, today announced its SIP trunking services have been qualified for Microsoft Office Communications Online, a component of Microsoft Online Services, in a dedicated environment.

To earn this approval from Microsoft, the IntelePeer SIP trunking service passed a rigorous qualification process conducted by an independent testing organization. The qualification process included more than 25 tests, covering inbound and outbound SIP trunking connection scenarios, virtual direct-internal-dialing calls (DIDs) and complex dial plans.

"Microsoft Online Services bring the power of the leading enterprise messaging and collaboration applications to the cloud," said Yancey Smith, director of Lync product management, Microsoft. "IntelePeer is helping customers embrace cloud-based services by providing high-quality SIP trunking connections that enhance the multimodal communications capabilities within Microsoft Online Services."

Microsoft Online Services provide businesses with industry-leading messaging and collaboration tools, delivered as a subscription service, without the need to deploy and maintain software and hardware on-premise. Microsoft Online Services also are available in a dedicated or private cloud environment, hosted and managed by Microsoft on dedicated infrastructure and tailored to enterprises that require specialized security and performance.
