Office Communications Server Installed

office communicator

Information Technology has recently installed an Office Communications Server (OCS) to manage real-time communications. This server works with the Office Communicator 2007 software application to allow many types of communication which allows CCRI faculty and Staff to communicate and collaborate in real-time and supports instant messaging, peer-to-peer audio, video, application-sharing, and data collaboration while keeping all information encrypted.

Key Benefits

  • Initiate a one-to-one or group text-based conversation when you need information quickly
  • Schedule video conferences using a Web camera for more personal communications
  • Place Communicator calls (calls from your computer to another computer or to a phone) from any connected location
  • Share documents through Communicator “data sharing” sessions
  • Instant message contacts securely using public IM programs such as AOL Instant Messenger, MSN / Windows Messenger, and Yahoo! Messenger. Communicator calls and audio/video conferencing are not supported with public instant messaging contacts.
