Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007 Help Microsoft introduced the next edition of Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007, Microsoft's platform for managing presence, instant messaging, video conferencing, and software-based VoIP. The latest edition of Office Communications Server features enhancements that give network administrators additional control for supporting their communications infrastructure effectively while providing an extensible architecture for collaborative business processes.

To lower expenses, increase efficiency, and promote teamwork, the new Release 2 of Microsoft Office Communications Server permits dial-in conferencing to replace costly third-part services with an in-house audioconferencing software bridge that can be administered as part of a company's overall communications infrastructure. Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007 also now features desktop sharing, which allows users to share their desktop seamlessly and launch calls and team up with others outside the company on PC, Mac, or Linux-powered computers via a Web-based interface. The latest release of Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007 also allows geographically scattered groups to work together by participating in theme-based dialogues that persist indefinitely. This tool supplies participants with a list of all active chat rooms and themes, periodically backs up discussions in an XML format that meets compliance regulations, delivers utilities to look through the entire record of chat on a specific topic, and offers triggers and alerts to inform someone about recent posts.

the new edition of Microsoft Communications Server 2007 also incorporates improved support for voice communications and mobility. The new attendant console permits support personnel or group administrators to manage phone calls and conferences for other users, establish workflows to route calls, and manage larger numbers of incoming calls via a user-friendly console. A new Session Initiation Protocol trunking feature enables businesses to cut expenses by establishing up a straight-through VoIP interface between an Internet phone service provider and Office Communications Server without requiring on-premises gateways. Also, Microsoft Office Communicator Mobile functionality has been extended to more device platforms such as the Nokia S40, RIM Blackberry, and Windows Mobile.
