Windows 7: Ms voip

I just came across this old article:

Microsoft Unveils VoIP Solution as Part of Desktop Communications: Upcoming release of Microsoft Office Communications Server aims to accelerate voice over Internet protocol adoption by enabling IT to extend existing telephony infrastructure.

Scanning through it sounds as though that Office already has VOIP capability built into it...somewhere. I have been going through the interfaces Office 2010 beta looking for anything that might be related, finding nothing. Does this still exist, or has it been discontinued?

Not only that but MS Exchange 2010 and MS Office Communications Server 2010 can complete replace the typical PBX. It is amazing!

Okay, how about an amazing link(s). When I go though the options in the Start Menu for either of the things that you mentioned, they aren't there. How are they accessed...do they require additional downloads?

Humm, I am not sure where they are by the link you posted or on MS web site. I attended a special invite (meaning if you have $599USD you can attend) web conference where they showed just how to do this. Let me look through my emails and see if there are links to all this.

Edit: (I so forgot) the emails are in my work email. Currently I don't have access to them due to we took the network down for an upgrade. I will be down for a few hours. UGH! I will look tomorrow or Monday when I get to work.

Hmm, I won't pretend that I read the articles of your links in detail, but scanning through the paragraphs, I get the impression that this is not practical, either in terms of the cost or the limited needs of an individual just wanting to place or receive calls via VOIP. It does appear to be designed for a business having much more complex needs. If I am correct, you have given me what I needed...enough to know that I shouldn't bother looking further. Thanks.

You are completely correct. Cost and in a simple business less than 100 phones would never benefit from setting all this up. PC based PBX's are so cheap now-a-days that you can put a small business phone system in a flash.
