10 ShoreWare CSTA server integration with LCS, OCS & OCS R2 Remote Call Control features
Live Communication Server 2005 Office Communication Server 2007 Office Communication Server 2007 Release 2 Make Call Receive Call (1) Caller ID Call Waiting(2) Call Hold(3) Call Retrieve Alternate Call Single Step transfer Consultative transfer Conference(4)(7) DTMF digits generation(5) Call Forward / Call Redirect Call Forward based on location (7) Do Not Disturb (6)(7) Missed Call notification Reply With IM Escalation to Video (1) The RCC enabled user can receive call using MOC. Remember, the user can’t talk through MOC. The RCC enabled user can accept the call through MOC and PBX or IP PBX phone will go off-hook and the speaker phone capabilities will be activated on the PBX phone. (2) The RCC enabled user gets pop up saying a new call is coming (3) The RCC enabled user can handle multiple calls at a time. Every call is represented by a different communication window. The user can place any communication on hold during the conversation period. (4)  the RCC enabled user can perform a multi party conference call ( 3-6 ) initiated & managed from the MOC interface- Not supported by OCS 2007 & OCS 2007 R2 (5) MOC has option to send the DTMF digit over trunk calls (6) the ShoreTel phone may be set to do not disturb mode from the MOC interface or automatically when the end user goes into full screen mode with any application – Setting the phone in DND will not be reflected in the MOC as LCS does not support the Get DND status CSTA message. (7) only available with Live Communication server 2005 – these particular CSTA controls were removed by Microsoft in OCS 2007 & OCS 2007 R2.

21 FAQ Is the CSTA license per user or per connection ?
Each MOC controlling a ShoreTel Phone will require a CSTA license for establishing the CSTA connection. So what do I need to order for this Solution ? ShoreWare CSTA server CD & CSTA licenses A shoreWare TAPI licence or DVM licence if one such server is not already in place Implementation services SOW + quote if/when required What About the IBM integration I heard of ? The upcoming IBM Sametime integration leverages ShoreWare CSTA as well but requires supplementary pieces of Software on the IBM infrastructure which will be released at a later stage. Can I use MOC as a softphone with CSTA ? No – the integration using CSTA is purely CTI & does not enable the MOC to place voice call thru the ShoreTel system.
