An important part of implementing Unified Communication in an organization is to use equipment that is supported by OCS. Products that are Optimized for Microsoft Office Communicator can be found over at technet using this link: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/office/ocs/bb970310.aspx.
I have tested a lot of the Polycom products, including CX-5000 (Round Table), the Microsoft webcams and the Jabra bluetooth headset. All these products works right out of the box when using Office Communicator, and my customers are really impressed by how simple it is to use these products. To quote what one customer said: “I knew these products where easy to use, but when it worked right out of the box and without the need to restart the communicator client surprised me. This is something my users will adopt really quick.”
