Skype formally announced the launch of Skype Connect 1.0 (formely Skype for SIP).
Straight out of beta, Skype Connect delivers a solution that enables IP-enabled private branch exchange (PBX) or Unified Communications (UC) systems to connect to Skype. With nearly 2500 active global customers, it is certainly poised to be a viable option for small and medium sized businesses.
Skype Connect users are able to make outbound calls from their desktop phones to landlines and mobile devices at a per-minute calling rate, and receive inbound calls from Skype connected users by placing the Click & Call buttons on websites. Users will also be able to receive calls from landlines or mobile phones in the corporate PBX using Skype's online numbers (purchased separately).
