Support for Office Communications Server 2007?

Office Communications Server 2007 (OCS 2007) has been out for over a year.  The only thing holding me up from upgrading to it is BES support.  When is it going to come?  OCS 2007 offers many awesome new features that would save my company money.  I already own the software because I have the license under Software Assurance.  Smiley Mad

 

I heard that SP5 might support OCS 2007.  Is this true?

Thank you for the response.  Although I hope this is the case, do you have any reference backing that up?  Also, is 4.1.6 out yet?  I don't remember seeing it.

Not sure about 4.1.6 as some have mentioned this is available for Partners via BlackBerryUniverse but I have not seen this posted there, As I am a partner. This is the best you may just get for now, not sure about OCS 2007

 

 

The below is current, I have been on our RIM TAM's case about this today in fact ...

Re: Support for Office Communications Server 2007?

I think I am about to answer my own question but.... just because it is not supported do you know or not if it actually works?

 

I'm installing OCS2007 and have BES 4.1.5 and am going to give it a whirl... 

 

I'm sure I will find out soon enough!!

 

Thanks

Dont have a clue as of yet.

SP6 was pulled from the Partner Site.

 

I managed to get downloaded but do not have OCS2007 to even try out.

Is there any word on when BES 4.1.6 will be available as we are planning an upgrade soon?

 

Thanks,

Re: Support for Office Communications Server 2007?

RIM hasn't posted anything to the BlackBerry Product Lifecycle page.  I'm hoping for sometime before the end of the Summer here, but since the rumors of the beta in May there hasn't been much chatter about it ... fingers crossed!

Re: Support for Office Communications Server 2007?

SP6 was released today but we still need to find the Blackberry Client for use with Office Communications Server 2007 version 2.1.10.

 

If anyone finds the new client software then we'll finally get IM's through our OCS 2007 servers!
