Microsoft Communications Server 2007 Release 2 Expertise Microsoft announced the newest version of Office Communications Server 2007, Microsoft's platform for unifying presence awareness, IM infrastructure, video conferencing, and Voice over IP. The next version of Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007 features improvements that offer IT managers additional control for managing their communications infrastructure effectively while providing an expandable architecture for communications-enabled work processes.

To lower costs, improve efficiency, and promote teamwork, the new edition of Microsoft Communications Server allows dial-in audioconferencing to eliminate costly third-part services with an on-premises audioconferencing bridge that can be administered as part of the 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 audio communications and cooperate with colleagues external to the company on Windows PC, Apple Mac, or Linux-powered computers via a Web-based interface. The new edition of Office Communications Server 2007 also enables geographically dispersed teams to collaborate by taking part in topic-based dialogues that persist over time. This tool supplies users with a list of all available chat rooms and themes, periodically backs up chats in an XML file format that addresses auditing regulations, delivers tools to look through the entire history of discussion on a given theme, and offers filters and alerts to notify someone of recent updates.

the latest edition of Office Communications Server 2007 also incorporates improved support for voice communications and mobile workers. The innovative attendant console allows receptionists or group administrators to control calls and conferences on behalf of other users, establish processes to route phone calls, and handle higher volumes of incoming calls via a software-based console. A new SIP trunking feature allows companies to cut costs by establishing up a straight-through VoIP interface between an IP phone service provider and Office Communications Server 2007 without needing on-premises gateways. In addition, Office Communicator Mobile support now includes more device platforms including the Nokia S40, Blackberry, and Windows Mobile.
