Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007 Release 2 Consulting and Support Microsoft began shipping the most recent version of Microsoft Communications Server, Microsoft's solution for managing presence, IM infrastructure, teleconferencing, and software-based VoIP. The latest version of Microsoft Office Communications Server includes improvements that give IT organizations additional versatility for managing their communications system efficiently while providing an expandable architecture for communications-enabled work activity.

To reduce expenses, improve productivity, and enhance collaboration, the latest release of Office Communications Server 2007 permits dial-in conferencing to eliminate expensive outside services with an in-house conferencing software bridge that can be managed along with an organization's existing communications environment. Office Communications Server 2007 also now permits desktop sharing, which enables workers to share their desktop transparently and initiate audio communications and team up with colleagues outside the organization on Windows PC, Macintosh, or Linux platforms through a web interface. The latest edition of Microsoft Communications Server also enables geographically dispersed teams to work together by participating in theme-based discussions that persist indefinitely. This application supplies participants with a list of all active discussion rooms and themes, automatically backs up chats in a format that addresses auditing regulations, delivers utilities to search the complete record of chat on a given topic, and offers filters and alerts to notify people of recent updates.

Release 2 of Microsoft Communications Server 2007 also incorporates enhanced support for voice communications and mobile workers. The innovative attendant window permits support personnel or team secretaries to control phone calls and conferences on behalf of associates, set up workflows to route calls, and handle higher numbers of incoming communications through a software-based console. A new SIP trunking feature allows companies to cut costs by establishing up a straight-through Voice over IP interface between an Internet telephony service provider and Office Communications Server without needing on-premises VoIP gateways. Also, Microsoft Office Communicator Mobile functionality has been extended to new platforms such as the Motorola RAZR, RIM Blackberry, and Windows Mobile.
