The Cumulative Update for Lync Server 2010 – June 2012 will include Microsoft Office 365 Lync-to-phone (Lync Online Plan 3). Office 365 Lync-to-phone is a pure-cloud calling service for those who need to work from anywhere.

With Lync-to-phone, users can make and receive phone calls to any number from their laptop or smart phone, via a calling service which is purchased separately from a qualified partner. Jajah is the first available partner (initially only in US and UK). Lync-to-phone in Office 365 includes only a subset of the full enterprise Voice and PBX capabilities of Lync Server.

Lync Online Plan 3 will be included in Office 365 plan E4. See Microsoft Online Services Use Rights for more.

    Great announcement – and enriched featureset. Many of our customers wants this.

    Any news or indications on when there will be a cross European calling service provider, who can provide the necessary services to customers in other European countries?
