Skype said Monday that it has named Jonathan Rosenberg as its chief technology strategist.

The move comes shortly after Skype settled a distracting legal spat with the co-founders of the company, Niklas Zennstrom and Janus Friis.

Rosenberg most recently was a fellow at Cisco and directed strategy for the company's enterprise voice portfolio (statement). Rosenberg is well schooled in Session Initiation Protocol (SIP), which serves as Skype's bridge to the enterprise.

The move to hire Rosenberg sheds some light on Skype's master plan, which is to become a larger enterprise player. Don't be surprised if Skype bridges into more collaboration applications as it builds out its corporate presence.

Rosenberg will report to Daniel Berg, Skype's CTO.
