Microsoft Office Communications Server – Training Portal

At Microsoft Learning’s Training Portal for Office Communications Server (OCS) you can find pointers to Microsoft Learning’s OCS-related training offerings, including free preview chapters (plus the full TOC and Index) from Microsoft Press’s recently published Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007 R2 Resource Kit, a great resource for deploying and administering Office Communications Server 2007 R2.

The free chapters are Chapter 2, “New Features Overview,” and Chapter 13, “Enterprise Voice Application Scenarios.” The files are available in both PDF and XPS formats.

The book is by Rui Maximo, Rick Kingslan, Rajesh Ramanathan, and Nirav Kamdar with the Microsoft Office Communications Server Team, and it was published in February. For more on this title, including the book’s Foreword by Gurdeep Singh Pall, Corporate Vice President of Unified Communications Group, visit this earlier blog post.

You can also download a free, 180-day trial version of Office Communications Server 2007 R2 from the Training Portal.
