Microsoft Corp. has lined up customers such as Boeing Co. and France Telecom SA for new software that handles Web-based calling and videoconferencing, advancing an effort that may add $1 billion in annual sales.

The software, called Lync, debuts at an event today, before going on sale Dec. 1. It has the potential to generate sales on par with Microsoft’s SharePoint business, which makes about $1.3 billion a year, Kurt DelBene, president of the Redmond, Washington-based company’s Office division, said yesterday.
