Microsoft Office Communications Server Support Microsoft unveiled the most recent version of Microsoft Communications Server 2007, Microsoft's solution for streamlining presence awareness, IM infrastructure, web conferencing, and IP-based calling. The newest version of Office Communications Server 2007 features improvements that give network administrators additional control for maintaining their communications system effectively while representing an expandable platform for communications-enabled work activity.

To reduce expenses, improve efficiency, and support teamwork, the new Release 2 of Microsoft Communications Server permits dial-in conferencing to replace expensive third-part services with an on-premises audioconferencing bridge that can be managed as part of an organization's overall communications environment. Microsoft Communications Server also now permits desktop sharing, which enables workers to share their desktop seamlessly and launch calls and collaborate with others external to the organization on Windows PC, Mac, or Linux-powered computers via a web connection. The latest version of Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007 also allows geographically scattered groups to work together by taking part in topic-based discussions that persist over time. This application supplies participants with a list of all available discussion rooms and themes, periodically archives chats in an XML format that meets auditing requirements, provides tools to search the complete history of discussion on a specific topic, and offers triggers and alarms to notify people about recent posts.

the latest version of Microsoft Office Communications Server also includes enhanced support for voice and mobility. The new attendant console allows receptionists or group administrators to control calls and conferences for associates, set up processes to direct calls, and manage larger numbers of incoming communications through an intuitive software console. The Session Initiation Protocol trunking capability allows companies to reduce expenses by setting up a direct Voice over IP connection between an Internet phone service provider and Microsoft Communications Server without needing in-house gateways. In addition, Office Communicator Mobile functionality now includes new platforms including the Nokia S40, Blackberry, and Windows Mobile.
