Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007 Integration Microsoft debuted the next version of Office Communications Server, Microsoft's platform for unifying presence awareness, instant messaging, remote conferencing, and IP-based calling. The latest edition of Office Communications Server 2007 features enhancements that give IT organizations more flexibility for maintaining their communications system efficiently while providing an extensible platform for communications-enabled business processes.

To lower expenses, improve productivity, and enhance collaboration, the new edition of Office Communications Server allows phone conferencing to eliminate costly outside services with an on-premises conferencing software bridge that can be maintained as part of the current communications environment. Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007 also now features desktop sharing, which allows users to share their desktop transparently and launch calls and team up with colleagues external to the company on PC, Macintosh, or Linux-powered platforms through a web interface. The new edition of Microsoft Office Communications Server also allows geographically scattered groups to work together by participating in topic-based discussions that extend indefinitely. This application provides users with a list of all active chat sessions and themes, periodically backs up chats in a format that addresses auditing regulations, delivers utilities to look through the entire record of chat on a specific theme, and provides triggers and alarms to notify people about recent posts.

the latest version of Microsoft Office Communications Server also incorporates enhanced support for voice and mobile workers. The new attendant window allows receptionists or group secretaries to control phone calls and conferences on behalf of associates, establish workflows to direct calls, and handle higher numbers of incoming communications through a software-based console. A new Session Initiation Protocol trunking feature allows companies to cut costs by establishing up a straight-through Voice over IP connection between an Internet telephony service provider and Microsoft Communications Server 2007 without needing on-premises VoIP gateways. In addition, Microsoft Office Communicator Mobile support now includes more device platforms such as the Motorola RAZR, RIM Blackberry, and Windows Mobile.
