I've just designed a high-level OCS architecture for a large organisation, including IM/presence, conferencing, Enterprise Voice, external access (inc. conferencing/voice), federation and PIC.
I have also discovered and included all of the relevant documentation for planning and deployment of this architecture.
Total time spent designing this architecture - < 5 minutes!
How did I do this so quickly and easily? The Planning Tool for Office Communications Server 2007.
The planning tool provides you prescriptive guidance to get you started with planning your Office Communications Server 2007 topology. The tool asks you a series of interview questions about the features that you are interested in, as well as information about your organisation.
Based on the answers you provide, the planning tool draws out a recommended topology based on Microsoft’s Office Communications Server 2007 User Model that has been tested.
The planning tool also provides customised links to the appropriate documentation to help you plan and deploy your topology.
You can download the Planning Tool for Office Communications Server 2007 at http://download.microsoft.com/download/2/0/7/207bb9fb-bffe-478f-91b7-8339d25f7fdd/OCSPlanningTool.msi.
