At last we are free to start blogging about our upcoming R2 release of OCS 2007. We've made a formal announcement at VoiceCon Amsterdam and the lid is off on this release which we've been cooking for over a year now. I'm especially proud of the customer focused nature of this release. There is not an ounce of fat in the release. No superfluous features, no pet projects, no easter eggs ;-) Seriously, every last piece of this release has come from detailed and repeated feedback from our customers. 64-bit support, Windows Server 2008 support, PSTN bridging, Boss/Admin support, and much much more. This is our best release to date. And this couldn't come at a better time. As folks are starting to tighten their belt during these tough times, OCS 2007 R2 offers some tremendous cost savings. Our own internal deployment of R2 is going to save us million$ just with the PSTN bridging feature. That is some awesome ROI. Beats my 401(K) for sure ... I'll be posting a ton of more stuff about R2 in the coming days.

Hi Sean, will this release of OCS 2007 (R2) include a fix for faxing in an Enterprise Voice senario? In a pure Enterprise Voice deployment (no PBX) you have to give users a second extension and bypass OCS (mediation server) directly to the Exchange UM server for inbound fax to work. This was due to a limitation in the mediation server role. Has this issue been resolved? PLEASE say yes :)
