Today, Microsoft announced a new XMPP Gateway for Office Communications Server 2007 R2 that enables interoperability with Cisco Jabber/XMPP and Google Talk, along with new licensing options for Office Communications Server customers to connect with AOL and
Windows Live (read the details of the announcement).
To get more details about how all of this works we sat down with Ashima Singhal (Senior Product Manager) and Albert Kooiman (Senior Product Manager) from the Communication Server team to discuss the news focusing on Instant Messaging (IM) interoperability between different networks.
Albert explains the architecture to enable the bridges between the different IM services including AOL, Live, Yahoo! and GTalk (XMPP) as well as with IBM Sametime and Cisco Jabber. Then Ashima shows a demo of various public IM clients communicating and sharing presence/status information with Office Communicator.
