SIP Trunking for Microsoft Lync
Made for enterprise
Microsoft Lync (2010 / 2013) is a software-based PBX and communications platform that is deeply integrated with the Microsoft enterprise product suite.
Lync is server-based software, requiring deployment and administration by an IT technician. It is typically used by government and enterprise.
Voice, video and more
Lync uses IP communication technology, via SIP Trunks, to deliver voice and video calls. The Lync platform can also be used to provide cloud services such as messaging.
Lync can be a data-intensive service, requiring a robust symmetrical internet connection. Accordingly, it is often enabled through MyNetFone ethernet broadband.
How to deploy Microsoft Lync with SIP Trunks
What is SIP Trunking?
SIP Trunks are digitial phone lines that connect your company’s Microsoft Lync Server (2010 / 2013) to the MyNetFone IP communications network. By deploying Lync through MyNetFone SIP Trunks, you can deliver cost-efficient two-way calling, and enable Lync's many Unified Communications (UC) features.
Why use SIP Trunks?
Microsoft Lync enables internal office calls to travel over your office ethernet or NBN internet connection. It also enables UC features, such as integration of Outlook contacts, click-and-call internal communications and other capabilities.
However, without a SIP Trunk, these features are not available on external calls, which will otherwise use a tranditional landline. That means every external call will incur a costly ISDN / PSTN connection fee. By contrast, IP communications can be up to 60% cheaper.
To ensure a smooth transition, choose a SIP Trunking service which has been formally tested for reliability and compatibility with Microsoft Lync. MyNetFone is one of only a handful of SIP Trunking providers worldwide to be officially certified to interwork with the Microsoft Lync Server 2010.
Furthermore, many customers have successfully deployed MyNetFone SIP Trunks with later editions: Lync 2013 and Skype for Business.
