An instantmessagingplanet.com article says “The acquisition, which has Nortel buying Pingtel from the smaller firm’s parent company, BlueSocket, illustrates a growing trend as vendors strive to push out seamless and easy-to-manage UC solutions — but often don’t have the capacity to develop needed software elements in-house.” Check out the article to learn more.
