Microsoft Lync Deployments Depend on the Correct Session Border Controller

May 07, 2013

Microsoft (News - Alert) Lync is quickly becoming one of the most widely deployed unified communications solutions in the enterprise market today. Companies see the benefits of Lync: helping facilitate communication and collaboration, improving efficiency, saving money and more.


Lync integrates tightly with existing Microsoft Office products, like Outlook, that workers use every single day. As businesses consider deploying Lync in conjunction with their existing SIP trunks, however, most do not give a second thought to a very important question: Which session border controller works best with Lync?

It is easy to think that all session border controllers are pretty much the same, but that is far from the case. Not only should companies take a close look at the range of features provided by a particular SBC – from policy and routing rules to transcoding and encryption processes and a lot more – it’s very important to determine whether the session border controller is, in fact, Microsoft Lync certified.

Choosing the right SBC may seem like a daunting task but, fortunately, there are companies that are ready, willing and able to assist in this process. One such company is Sonus Networks (News - Alert), which is sponsoring a free webinar on this very topic.

Entitled “Are All Session Border Controllers Created Equal? Not For Microsoft Lync,” the event will take place at 11:00 a.m. EDT on Tuesday, May 14, 2013. It will feature David Tipping (News - Alert), vice president and general manager of the Sonus SBC business unit. During the event, attendees will learn how to save money with the right SBC, how to choose the correct SBC for Microsoft Lync deployment, how to deal with deployment issues, and more.
