folks, i'm a noob discovering the exciting world of speech server 2k7, so any input is appreciated.
Has anyone deployed a complete end-to-end *software* solution, ie no hardware TIMs?
I understand that there are a few VOIP companies that facilitate SIP over TCP.. so they act as the PSTN/VOIP gateway, and MSS is the VOIP endpoint. Can someone recommend some actual companies that seamlessly integrate with MSS2k7?
For example, i found these guys.. http://www.vailsys.com/mss/index.html.. i'm yet to hear from their support on how things work.
Do i need OCS in the above mix.. ie i read some articles about configuring the mediation server (didnt dive deep)..
assuming a softphone SIP client can connect to MSS2k7 without OCS in between, then i assume a VOIP provider (say Vonage) can give me a PSTN phone number, where the VOIP provider directly connects to MSS2k7?
If yes, what all needs to be configured?

Speech Server is just a component of Office Communication server much like Word is a component of Office. Unlike Word however you cannot purchase Speech Server separately. The two options are OCS Standard or OCS Enterprise. If you're looking to do a straight telephony application then all you need is the $699 Standard Edition.
As for SIP providers, it really depends on what you're trying to do. What kind of application are you thinking of building?

thanks for the input on versions.
I'm looking to build a simple IVR app that will connect to an external VOIP system (like Vonage or whoever supports SIP over tcp). I don't want to install a telephony board.
Can someone recommend a VOIP provider that integrates well with speech server 2k7?
What configuration would be needed in the above case, for incoming and outgoing calls?

yo MVP's / Microsoft, any inputs to make the product more adoptable in the real world?

28 ตุลาคม 2552 5:21I'm not sure what you mean "without hardware". You'll need a machine to run Speech Server and your application along with some kind of gateway to provide access to the phone system (PSTN - Public Switch Telephone Network).
The simplest solution is an analog gateway connected to a standard copper telephone line (called a POTS line for "Plain Old Telephone System"). There are a number of gateways on the market (Dialogic's DMG line is a very popular one).
If you've got an IP PBX or SIP Gateway already that supports SIP over TCP that will also work.
