Lync On-Premise in combinatie met Exchange Online
29 June 11 03:56 PM | Ferjan Ormeling | met no comments

Met de launch van Office 365 gisteren (www.office365.com) zullen nog meer bedrijven gebruik gaan maken van de Online diensten van Microsoft. Ook Lync kan hierin als dienst afgenomen worden, maar er kunnen natuurlijk altijd redenen zijn om dit On-Premise te houden, bijvoorbeeld omdat de ouderwetse telefooncentrale vervangen moet worden door Lync. Met Microsoft Online maakt het niet uit of je een deel van de diensten on-premise en een ander deel uit de cloud afneemt, dat is niet onze keuze, maar die van de klant. In onderstaand artikel op NextHop wordt daarom ook verder uitgelegd hoe je de integratie van Lync On-Premise met Exchange Online mogelijk maakt:

 This article describes how to configure integration between on-premises Microsoft Lync Server 2010 deployments and Exchange Online.

On-premises Lync Server 2010 supports interoperability with Exchange Online in the following ways:

  • Calendar data and out-of-office message
  • Instant Messaging (IM) and presence interoperability in Outlook Web App
  • Voicemail interoperability

Outlook Web App can interoperate with on-premises Lync Server 2010 to provide users with instant messaging (IM) and presence within the Outlook Web App interface.

Exchange Server Hybrid Edition key
27 June 11 03:52 PM | Ferjan Ormeling | 2 comment(s)
Organizations that install an Exchange 2010 server solely to act as a bridge between their Exchange Server 2003 or Exchange Server 2007 on-premises environments and Exchange Online can request a Hybrid Edition server key to license the server (or to license multiple servers for redundancy purposes). The Hybrid Edition server key is provided at no cost. Organizations can obtain a Hybrid Edition server key by contacting Office 365 support, who will verify that the organization has a valid Exchange Online subscription and then send the key via email. The Hybrid Edition key is not available to trial customers.
The Hybrid Edition server cannot be used for other purposes besides connecting the legacy Exchange Server environment to the cloud. If the organization moves a mailbox to the Exchange 2010 server, or takes advantage of any other Exchange Server 2010 feature outside of the scope of the hybrid deployment, a regular Exchange Server 2010 license and Exchange Server 2010 CALs are required.
Lync koppelen aan traditionele conferencing devices met Radvision
21 June 11 11:03 AM | William van Male | 1 comment(s)

 Lync en OCS zijn op verschillende manieren te koppelen aan bestaande room based video conferencing devices. Soms rechtstreeks met SIP koppeling soms via gateway intelligentie. In nederland wat minder bekend is de Radvision Scopia Video Gateway. Een korte demonstartie is te zien op YouTube. Lync integratie werkt voorlopig alleen voor on-prem Lync en nog niet met Office 365 Lync Online. Dank aan Dirk voor de tip.
