OCS next – Microsoft Lync


Are you connected?

Microsoft® Lync™, formerly Microsoft Office Communications Server (OCS) and Microsoft Communicator, delivers on the vision of a truly integrated communications experience.  Lync is about connecting people in new ways, anytime, anywhere.


Microsoft Lync ushers in a new connected experience transforming every communication into an interaction that is more collaborative, engaging and accessible from anywhere.  A single interface unites voice, IM, audio-, video-, and web-conferencing into a richer, more contextual offering.   This includes a visually compelling experience that is consistent throughout Microsoft Office and other business applications, including color-coded presence icons, pictures, high-resolution video and desktop sharing. End-users can instantly see the availability of their contacts, start a conference call from right within Office applications, or sit down for a “face-to-face” video-conference.   A single identity connects users to contacts inside and outside of the organization with communications that are federated with corporate and leading public IM networks.  And a single experience across the PC, phone, web or mobile means that users have the choice to connect from many devices. For IT, the benefits are equally powerful, with a highly secure and reliable system that works with Active Directory, Microsoft Exchange and Microsoft SharePoint and uses Microsoft management tools to facilitate easier management and lower cost of ownership.  Interoperability with existing systems enables smoother deployment and migration.
