Nefsis is Compatibile with OC and
Microsoft Office Communications Server™ (OCS)
Nefsis is also compatible with Microsoft Live Communications
Server (LCS), now called Office Communications
Server (OCS); and the Office Communicator client (OC). Nefsis
online meeting links are standard URLs that can be included in OC
chat threads and messages, making it easy for conference
participants to click on a link and join an online meeting.
Nefsis customers that use their own personal meeting room or
standing meeting rooms can embed their links into templates, message
stationary and so on, making it convenient for their participants
to join recurring meetings.
For Microsoft shops that use Office and Outlook, but not OC, the
Nefsis contact list and tray icon — a no charge add-on
— can be used as a presence management and instant

Office Communicator™ Client (OC)
The desktop components of the Microsoft Office Communicator suite are
essentially a softphone and unified communications client, including a
broad set of features in formerly distinct product categories. Like all
phones or softphones, the OC client is highly dependent on its associated
PBX or switch, in this case, the Office Communications Server (OCS).
The features available to a typical Communicator user will vary a great
deal depending on the company's network, presence or absence of the
Communicator Server (the "switch"), Live Meeting Service account
(an online service subscription), and other required infrastructure such as
Exchange, SQL Server, Internet Information Server (IIS), Active Directory
(ADS) and Telephony CALs. The relevant features may include presence, IM,
chat, consumer IM interchange, and web, VoIP and video conferencing,
According to Gartner Research, all of these requisite components and
network services must be in production to test or fully activate OC/OCS.
For customers of the complete Microsoft infrastructure suite
mentioned above, OC may be a natural addition. For others, the
prerequisites alone may preclude running a simple trial, much less a
production installation. For these customers, a stand-alone
presence management, web and multiparty
video conferencing solution
such as Nefsis provides a viable alternative.
For Customers Running Nefsis and OC ...
there is some overlap between Nefsis and Microsoft
real-time applications, there are many customers that use
Nefsis as an extension of their OC installations. In other
words, they run both Nefsis and OC.

where Nefsis provides OC customers useful extensions and additional

capabilities today, and rest assured that compatibility with the Office suite and
