Route Helper

Communications Server 2007 R2

Topic Last Modified: 2009-05-22

Enterprise Voice Route Helper helps you visualize, test, modify, archive, and share configuration information about voice routing. Route Helper is an alternative to the Office Communications Server Administrative Tools snap-in for creating, viewing, and modifying Enterprise Voice number normalization rules, location profiles, voice policy, and routes. It has additional features for doing the following:

  • Exporting and importing or backing up voice routing data between systems.
  • Testing configuration changes before uploading them to a live system.
  • Creating and running configuration test cases to ensure the usability of routing data after making changes to it, but before committing the changes to a deployed system.
  • Creating and modifying number normalization rules, location profiles, voice policy, and routing data without writing the necessary regular expressions.
  • Analyzing a location profile for compatibility with Microsoft Office Communicator Phone Edition.
  • Working without access to an Office Communications Server deployment to analyze, share, test, and educate by using data that can be uploaded to a working server in the future.

Route Helper is included with Office Communications Server 2007 R2 Resource Kit Tools, available as a free download at the Microsoft Download Center at For details about using Route Helper, see the Resource Kit Tools Readme.
