The new attendant window allows support personnel or team administrators to manage calls and conferences for associates, set up workflows to direct calls, and handle higher volumes of incoming calls via a software-based interface. A new SIP trunking capability enables businesses to reduce costs by setting up a straight-through VoIP interface between an IP telephony service supplier and Microsoft Communications Server 2007 without needing on-premises gateways. In addition, Microsoft Office Communicator Mobile functionality now includes new platforms including the Motorola RAZR, RIM Blackberry, and Windows Mobile.
