Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007 Release 2 Support Microsoft introduced the newest edition of Microsoft Office Communications Server, Microsoft's solution for managing presence awareness, instant messaging, video conferencing, and Voice over IP. The Release 2 version of Office Communications Server features improvements that give IT managers more flexibility for supporting their communications system efficiently while representing an extensible platform for collaborative business processes.

To lower expenses, improve productivity, and support teamwork, the new version of Office Communications Server 2007 allows dial-in audioconferencing to replace costly outside services with an on-premises conferencing software bridge that can be controlled along with a company's overall communications infrastructure. Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007 Release 2 also now permits desktop sharing, which allows users to share their PC seamlessly and initiate audio communications and team up with others external to the company on Windows PC, Mac, or Linux computers through a web connection. The latest release of Office Communications Server 2007 also allows geographically scattered groups to work together by participating in topic-based discussions that persist indefinitely. This application supplies participants with an index of all available chat rooms and themes, automatically archives chats in a format that meets compliance requirements, provides utilities to search the entire history of chat on a specific topic, and provides filters and alerts to notify people about recent updates.

the latest version of Microsoft Office Communications Server also includes enhanced support for voice and mobility. The new attendant window permits support personnel or group secretaries to manage phone calls and conferences on behalf of associates, establish workflows to direct phone calls, and handle higher numbers of incoming calls through a software-based interface. A new Session Initiation Protocol trunking capability enables companies to cut costs by establishing up a straight-through Voice over IP connection between an Internet telephony service provider and Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007 without requiring on-premises VoIP gateways. Also, Office Communicator Mobile support now includes more platforms such as the Motorola RAZR, Blackberry, and Windows Mobile.
