Great news, the MSFT UC Team announced on their blog, that Lync Server 2010 has reached RTM. Now we have a finished product.

General Availability is set for November 17th . Same day as Lync Server 2010 Launch in DK.

The Lync 2010 release takes collaboration and productivity to the next level by:

  • Providing a single platform that integrates the various modes of communication necessary for people and businesses to be productive. It does this for the end user via a single client experience, and on the back-end with a unified infrastructure and management experience.
  • Enabling an extensible and open platform that invites corporate and professional developers around the world to help us provide customers with greater flexibility. The success here will be driven by our open approach to interoperability which enables Lync to work with existing communications systems while implementing a single API set across all modes of communication, simplifying the developer experience.
  • Rounding out enterprise voice capabilities so that Lync can help the broadest set of customers reduce legacy infrastructure costs and enhance that infrastructure with an incredibly rich set of softphone capabilities.
  • Supporting our partner community by enabling them to provide an optimized experience with Lync. This is exemplified by the enormous range of devices available from partners around the world.

Training courses to match the two upcoming Lync Server 2010 exams is suppose to be scheduled for availability sometime next spring/summer.
