Microsoft is to acquire Swiss voice over IP company Media-streams.com to help boost its unified communications platform, Microsoft Office Live Communications Server.

The Zurich company develops VoIP-based communications applications that fit with the technologies Microsoft is already developing with the Live Communication Server product, which was launched earlier this year.

Microsoft aims to bring together support for e-mail, instant messaging, short message service, voice/telephony, video and web conferencing with the platform.

As a result of the acquisition, for an undisclosed sum, Media-streams will be integrated into Microsoft’s real-time collaboration group.

Microsoft said the acquisition would help it extend VoIP to communications solutions designed to improve productivity and business processes.
