Microsoft Communications Server 2007 Release 2 Assistance Microsoft introduced the latest edition of Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007, Microsoft's solution for streamlining presence awareness, IM infrastructure, video conferencing, and IP-based calling. The latest edition of Microsoft Communications Server 2007 features improvements that give network administrators more flexibility for managing their communications infrastructure efficiently while representing an expandable platform for collaborative work processes.

To reduce costs, increase efficiency, and enhance teamwork, the new release of Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007 permits phone audioconferencing to replace costly third-part services with an on-premises audioconferencing software bridge that can be administered as part of an organization's overall communications infrastructure. Microsoft Communications Server 2007 Release 2 also now permits desktop sharing, which enables workers to share their PC seamlessly and launch audio communications and cooperate with colleagues external to the company on Windows PC, Mac, or Linux platforms through a Web-based connection. The new release of Office Communications Server also enables geographically dispersed teams to work together by taking part in theme-based discussions that persist indefinitely. This application provides users with an index of all active chat rooms and themes, automatically backs up discussions in an XML format that addresses compliance regulations, provides utilities to look through the entire record of chat on a given topic, and provides triggers and alerts to notify people about recent posts.

the latest edition of Office Communications Server 2007 also includes improved support for voice and mobility. The new attendant window permits support personnel or team administrators to control calls and conferences on behalf of other users, establish workflows to route phone calls, and manage larger volumes of incoming communications through an intuitive software console. The Session Initiation Protocol trunking capability allows companies to reduce expenses by setting up a straight-through VoIP interface between an IP phone service supplier and Microsoft Office Communications Server without requiring on-premises VoIP gateways. Also, Office Communicator Mobile support now includes new platforms such as the Motorola RAZR, RIM Blackberry, and Windows Mobile.
