Cisco, a company that designs and sells hardware, software, networking, and communications technology services, has launched an appeal against the purchase of Skype by Microsoft. The Microsoft-Skype deal was unconditionally approved by the European Commission in October last year.

Cisco Unhappy with Microsoft-Skype Deal

Citing the possibility that Microsoft may take Skype in a proprietary direction and impede interoperability with other vendor’s video offerings, Cisco challenged the Microsoft’s US $8.5 billion takeover of Skype.

Cisco and Microsoft are archrivals in unified communications and collaboration, which includes video conferencing and chat capabilities like those provided by Skype. Another video conferencing service provider, Messagenet too joined Cisco in its appeal. Messagenet also fears to lose out if a dominant Microsoft/Skype team begins to roll out video calling products using Microsoft’s Lync platform.

The SVP of Cisco’s emerging business group, Marthin DeBeer, argues in a blog post that this is not about Cisco trying to quash the merger altogether — Microsoft is also an important partner and customer to Cisco — but to get the EU to put more conditions on it going through, to enforce more interoperability.
