Unified communications has been a long time coming but some feel we’re finally ready to ditch the PBX in favor of a full software solution using Microsoft’s Office Communications Server 2007. Joining me on this episode of the Converging On Microsoft podcast is Terry Gold, CEO and founder of Gold Systems. Terry is a long time expert in voice communications, speech recognition, PBX and VoIP technologies and has been an integral partner to Microsoft in the development and deployment of OCS 2007. During our discussion, Terry talks about what’s in OCS 2007 R2 that finally makes it possible to replace the enterprise PBX with OCS. Terry also talks about key capabilities like presence in OCS and the Office Communicator client which integrates with Exchange calendar information. If you are involved in unified communications or in the process of evaluating Office Communications Server, you’ll get a lot of value from our conversation. (25:11)
