        This document defines an important point in the evolution of instant messaging at Microsoft. Microsoft views instant messaging and presence as critical pillars in enabling new customer business experiences. This document guides you through the steps in evaluating and deploying Communicator 2005.
        Communicator 2005 serves as a secure enterprise messaging client that integrates instant messaging with telephony to create a complete one-stop solution to enterprise messaging. It is the next-generation, personal computer-based, real-time collaboration tool targeted at the information worker. Communicator 2005 allows you to simultaneously experience multiple modes of communication including instant messaging, video conferencing, telephony, application sharing, and file transfer.
        Communicator 2005 consists of two components: the server component and the client component. The server component functions as part of the several server roles offered by Microsoft Office Live Communications Server 2005, and is referred to as the Address Book Service.
        To design a successful Microsoft Office Live Communications Server 2005 with Service Pack 1 (SP1) messaging and presence system you need to understand the capabilities and limitations of the software and hardware upon which you build your messaging system. Whether you are developing a new Live Communications Server 2005 with SP1 implementation or upgrading from a previous implementation, balance the limitations of the network infrastructure with the capabilities of your messaging system, operating system, and user software.
