Microsoft Communications Server 2007 Consulting Microsoft introduced the most recent version of Office Communications Server, Microsoft's solution for unifying presence awareness, instant messaging, remote conferencing, and software-based VoIP. The most recent edition of Microsoft Communications Server features enhancements that give IT managers additional flexibility for supporting their communications infrastructure efficiently while providing an extensible platform for communications-enabled work activity.

To reduce expenses, increase productivity, and promote collaboration, the new version of Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007 permits dial-in conferencing to replace expensive third-part services with an on-premises conferencing software bridge that is administered along with a company's overall communications infrastructure. Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007 Release 2 also now features desktop sharing, which allows users to share their PC seamlessly and launch calls and team up with others outside the company on PC, Macintosh, or Linux computers through a web connection. The latest edition of Microsoft Office Communications Server also allows geographically dispersed groups to work together by participating in topic-based discussions that extend indefinitely. This tool provides users with a list of all active chat rooms and topics, periodically archives discussions in a file format that meets auditing regulations, delivers utilities to look through the entire history of chat on a specific topic, and offers filters and alerts to notify someone of recent updates.

Release 2 of Office Communications Server 2007 also includes improved support for voice communications and mobile workers. The innovative attendant window permits support personnel or team secretaries to control calls and conferences on behalf of other users, set up processes to route phone calls, and handle higher numbers of incoming calls through an intuitive software console. The SIP trunking capability allows companies to reduce expenses by establishing up a straight-through Voice over IP interface between an Internet phone service provider and Office Communications Server 2007 without requiring in-house gateways. In addition, Office Communicator Mobile functionality now includes more platforms such as the Motorola RAZR, Blackberry, and Windows Mobile.
