Integrating Audio Conferencing and Lotus Webconferencing in Lotus Sametime 7.5

I've been currently working on a demo of Lotus Sametime 7.5 for a customer in Brazil that wants to use a web-conferencing solution that will have an audio bridge for audio conferencing solutions. The customer is a Microsoft Exchange shop who has outsourced their Exchange administration to IBM Global Services (where I currently work). They have offices in a couple of South American countries as well as the United States, Canada, and Europe. Aside from Lotus Sametime, they are also evaluating Macromedia Breeze and WebEx, and they have the following requirement: audio integration with an Audio Conferencing service where they will be able to dial-into using local toll-free numbers.

I know that Premiere Global Services offers this type of solution for Lotus Sametime 6.5.1 customers in the United States and Canada. However, this is not available for Sametime 7.5 and/or customers outside North America.

Does anyone know of any available solution out there?

Hi - We're actually working with a number of vendors (and it's possible that Premiere can still help outside of the US). Drop me an e-mail and I'll see who else we can put you in touch with for this account.
