He says the best approach is to seek a business value for unified communications then work backwards to implement the elements needed to support it. Deciding a rollout to the entire company for unclear benefits is a bad idea.

Frost Webb rounded out her talk with a demonstration of OCS 2007 setting up and running a conference call among workstations and traditional phones. Participants using a PC viewed a roster of who was on the call and a starburst icon indicated which member was talking.

One participant connected via a Firefox Web browser using OCO Web Access, and the coordinator of the call had the option for each participant to authenticate via Active Directory.

One participant shared his desktop with those on the call who were connected via PC.
