Module 1 Determining the Implementation Requirements for On-Premise Conferencing
The way people work has changed in the last few decades as technology has enabled greater mobility. While this mobility can offer tremendous benefits to both employees and the organizations for which they work, it does present some challenges. The need to communicate effectively with work colleagues does not diminish with distance. If two or more employees need to meet in order to progress a project, collaborate on documents, or simply share ideas, Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007 can enable them to do so by providing support for on-premise conferencing. On-premise conferencing provides a number of benefits over hosted conferencing solutions.
In order to implement Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007, you must make some changes to Active Directory and deploy additional application servers, such as Internet Information Server, SQL Server 2005, and Exchange Server 2007.

Module 3 Implementing an On-Premise Conferencing Solution by Using Office Communications Server 2007 Enterprise Edition
The Enterprise Edition of Office Communications Server is better suited to larger organizations as it offers support for more users, and flexible server configuration options. For example, you can install all the Office Communications Server services on a single server or a group of servers; alternatively, you can deploy conferencing components to separate server computers in load-balanced pools. Enterprise Edition provides the capability to more easily scale to support more users as your needs change. In addition, because you must install the SQL Server component on a separate physical computer, you can provide resilience at the back end by clustering this SQL Server.
