The Unified Communications course is designed to give students an introduction into the concepts of Unified Communications plus an insight into the enterprise capabilities of Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007. Through a mixture of lecture and practical exercises students will deploy OCS 2007 and be made aware of the product features. The course is designed for those who are looking to deploy OCS 2007.
