Un discret amendement intégré dans le projet de loi Macron renforce les prérogatives attribuées à l’ARCEP pour déterminer qui est opérateur. Allo Skype ? En France, Skype va-t-il bientôt prendre la casquette d’opérateur…contre sa volonté ?
Microsoft's upcoming Skype for Web service will use the new WebRTC standard so it works in all modern browsers -- but not right away: early users will have to download a plugin that's only available on Mac and Windows. That's something Microsoft has already done for years in its Lync universal communications product.
Sales of video conferencing and telepresence hardware systems are declining, hurt by an increase in cloud and software-based options that often are cheaper and simpler to deploy, according to an IDC study.
In 2014's first quarter, video conferencing equipment revenue shrank 16 percent worldwide year over year to $473.5 million, while units sold fell 6.2 percent.
Microsoft announced that it will offer free group video calls on Skype, its popular internet communications service. Previously, such calls were reserved for customers who paid for premium Skype accounts.
Microsoft will demonstrate how Lync and Skype users will be able to communicate via video conferencing, the next stage of the integration between its enterprise unified communications server and its consumer IM and IP telephony network. The new integration will be shown at the Lync Conference, in Las Vegas and will be attended by almost 2,000 customers and partners, according to Microsoft.
