Internet telephony start-up eFusion has received investment backing from a number of companies, including Microsoft, for its software, which enables simultaneous Internet phone calls and surfing.
Along with Telecom Italia, France Telecom and finance house Shaw Venture Partners, Microsoft has joined existing investors Intel and AT&T in putting money behind eFusion's technology.
The company hopes to finish beta testing its application gateway software for release this summer. The company claims it will enable Internet users to receive and make phone calls over the Internet while surfing and without disconnecting.
For Microsoft this is just the latest in a series of investments in Internet software technology to carry and receive different types of traffic, including audio, video and telephony.
