the new edition of Microsoft Communications Server 2007 also includes improved support for voice and mobility. The innovative attendant console allows support personnel or group administrators to manage calls and conferences on behalf of other users, set up processes to direct phone calls, and handle higher numbers of incoming communications via an intuitive software console. The SIP trunking feature allows companies to reduce expenses by setting up a direct VoIP connection between an IP telephony service supplier and Office Communications Server 2007 without requiring on-premises VoIP gateways.
