Three steps to rolling out office communications server l.jpg
Three Steps to Rolling Out Office Communications Server

Reduce interruptions and help your employees find the right people, right away

Lower your costs and reduce travel while increasing collaboration

Provide a more customized telephony infrastructure for mobile workers, tele-workers, and new employees

Provide a more flexible voice experience while reducing your telephony costs once conferencing is in place

Broadly deploy audio, web, and video conferencing while removing your reservation-less audio costs next

Light up your Microsoft Office investments by broadly deploying instant messaging and presence right away

  • From a physical perspective, I assume, a PRI link is being used and on each side is a Multiplexer installed that splits up the PRI into connections for the extensions

  • The NET GW could be plugged in in front of MUX and it will do AD look up to identify DN as a Centrex or OCS.
