Solution Series: Deploy and Install Office Communication Server
May 30, 2008
Because unified communications represents one of the most important trends in networking in the last decade, this series introduces you to Microsoft's Office Communications Server 2007 (OCS 2007). Although OCS 2007 isn't Microsoft's only product to offer unified communications capabilities, it is their primary unified communications product.
This 86 page SolutionSeries PDF shows you how to perform a basic OCS 2007 deployment. The basic deployment will allow users on your network to perform instant messaging. More importantly though, it will allow you to get a feel for how presence works. Presence is a technology that allows users to convey their availability and preferred communications method to their co-workers in real time.
