Office Communications Server 2007 Help Microsoft made available the most recent edition of Microsoft Communications Server 2007, Microsoft's platform for managing presence awareness, IM infrastructure, remote conferencing, and IP-based calling. The latest edition of Office Communications Server includes enhancements that offer network administrators additional flexibility for supporting their communications infrastructure effectively while providing an expandable architecture for communications-enabled business processes.

To lower costs, improve efficiency, and promote teamwork, the latest version of Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007 permits phone conferencing to eliminate costly outside services with an in-house conferencing software bridge that is maintained as part of an organization's overall communications infrastructure. Microsoft Office Communications Server also now permits desktop sharing, which enables users to share their PC transparently and initiate audio communications and team up with colleagues outside the organization on PC, Apple Mac, or Linux-powered computers through a Web-based interface. The latest release of Microsoft Communications Server also enables geographically scattered groups to work together by participating in topic-based discussions that extend indefinitely. This application supplies participants with an index of all available chat rooms and themes, automatically archives discussions in an XML format that meets auditing regulations, delivers utilities to look through the complete history of chat on a given theme, and offers filters and alarms to inform someone about new posts.

the latest version of Microsoft Communications Server also incorporates improved support for voice and mobility. The innovative attendant window allows receptionists or team secretaries to control calls and conferences for other users, establish processes to direct calls, and manage higher volumes of incoming communications via an intuitive software console. A new Session Initiation Protocol trunking feature allows companies to cut expenses by setting up a straight-through Voice over IP connection between an IP telephony service supplier and Office Communications Server without needing on-premises VoIP gateways. In addition, Office Communicator Mobile support has been extended to more platforms such as the Motorola RAZR, RIM Blackberry, and Windows Mobile.
