Microsoft Office Communications Server Help Microsoft introduced the latest edition of Microsoft Office Communications Server, Microsoft's platform for unifying presence awareness, instant messaging, video conferencing, and software-based VoIP. The next version of Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007 features enhancements that offer network administrators more versatility for supporting their communications infrastructure efficiently while providing an extensible platform for communications-enabled work processes.

To reduce costs, increase efficiency, and support teamwork, the latest edition of Microsoft Communications Server 2007 allows dial-in audioconferencing to replace expensive outside services with an in-house audioconferencing software bridge that is maintained along with a company's current communications environment. Microsoft Office Communications Server also now features desktop sharing, which allows users to share their desktop transparently and launch calls and team up with others outside the company on Windows PC, Apple Mac, or Linux-powered computers through a Web-based interface. The new release of Office Communications Server 2007 also enables geographically scattered teams to work together by taking part in topic-based discussions that persist over time. This tool provides users with an index of all active chat sessions and topics, periodically backs up chats in an XML file format that meets compliance regulations, provides utilities to search the complete record of discussion on a given topic, and offers triggers and alerts to inform people of new posts.

the latest version of Office Communications Server 2007 also incorporates improved support for voice and mobile workers. The new attendant window allows receptionists or team administrators to control phone calls and conferences for associates, establish processes to direct phone calls, and handle higher volumes of incoming calls through a user-friendly console. A new SIP trunking feature enables companies to cut expenses by setting up a direct Voice over IP interface between an Internet phone service supplier and Microsoft Office Communications Server without needing in-house gateways. Also, Microsoft Office Communicator Mobile support has been extended to new device platforms such as the Motorola RAZR, Blackberry, and Windows Mobile.
