Office Communications Server 2007 Consulting and Support Microsoft announced the newest edition of Office Communications Server 2007, Microsoft's platform for streamlining presence awareness, IM infrastructure, remote conferencing, and IP-based calling. The latest edition of Microsoft Communications Server 2007 features improvements that offer IT organizations additional flexibility for maintaining their communications infrastructure effectively while representing an expandable architecture for collaborative work processes.

To lower expenses, improve efficiency, and support collaboration, the new edition of Microsoft Communications Server 2007 allows phone conferencing to eliminate expensive outside services with an on-premises audioconferencing bridge that is maintained as part of a company's existing communications environment. Office Communications Server also now features desktop sharing, which allows users to share their desktop seamlessly and launch audio communications and cooperate with colleagues outside the organization on PC, Apple Mac, or Linux platforms via a web interface. The new release of Microsoft Communications Server also enables geographically scattered teams to work together by taking part in theme-based dialogues that extend indefinitely. This application provides participants with a list of all active chat rooms and themes, periodically backs up chats in a format that addresses compliance regulations, provides utilities to look through the complete history of chat on a specific theme, and offers triggers and alarms to inform people of recent posts.

The new version of Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007 also includes improved support for voice communications and mobility. The innovative attendant console allows support personnel or team administrators to control phone calls and conferences on behalf of associates, establish workflows to direct calls, and manage higher volumes of incoming communications through an intuitive software console. A new Session Initiation Protocol trunking feature allows businesses to cut costs by setting up a straight-through VoIP interface between an IP telephony service provider and Office Communications Server 2007 without requiring in-house VoIP gateways. Also, Office Communicator Mobile support has been extended to more platforms such as the Motorola RAZR, RIM Blackberry, and Windows Mobile.
