Office Communications Server Consultants Microsoft introduced the newest version of Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007, Microsoft's solution for unifying presence, IM infrastructure, teleconferencing, and software-based VoIP. The Release 2 edition of Microsoft Office Communications Server includes improvements that give IT organizations more control for maintaining their communications system efficiently while representing an expandable architecture for collaborative business processes.

To reduce expenses, increase efficiency, and enhance teamwork, the latest Release 2 of Microsoft Communications Server 2007 allows phone audioconferencing to replace costly outside services with an on-premises audioconferencing software bridge that is managed along with a company's existing communications infrastructure. Microsoft Office Communications Server also now features desktop sharing, which allows users to share their PC seamlessly and initiate audio communications and collaborate with colleagues outside the organization on PC, Mac, or Linux platforms via a web connection. The latest release of Office Communications Server 2007 also enables geographically dispersed teams to work together by participating in theme-based dialogues that persist indefinitely. This tool provides participants with a list of all available discussion sessions and themes, periodically backs up discussions in an XML format that meets auditing regulations, delivers tools to search the entire record of discussion on a specific topic, and provides triggers and alerts to inform someone about recent posts.

The new version of Microsoft Communications Server also includes improved support for voice and mobility. The new attendant window allows support personnel or team secretaries to manage calls and conferences for other users, set up workflows to direct calls, and manage larger numbers of incoming calls via a software-based console. A new Session Initiation Protocol trunking feature allows companies to reduce expenses by establishing up a direct VoIP interface between an IP phone service provider and Microsoft Communications Server without needing on-premises gateways. Also, Microsoft Office Communicator Mobile functionality has been extended to new platforms such as the Motorola RAZR, RIM Blackberry, and Windows Mobile.
