The new attendant console permits support personnel or group administrators to manage calls and conferences for associates, establish processes to direct phone calls, and manage higher numbers of incoming communications via an intuitive software console. The SIP trunking feature enables companies to reduce expenses by establishing up a direct Voice over IP connection between an IP telephony service supplier and Office Communications Server without needing in-house gateways.
