Technical Guide: Integrating AudioCodes and Skype for Business (Lync)

Integrating AudioCodes and Skype for BusinessHello again! Over the years, we have had a growing OCS and Lync and now Skype for Business consulting practice. We have used a variety of hardware – from the very unsupported, not-to-be-named to protect the innocent/guilty) to the Quintum/NET/Sonus gear and now today primarily to AudioCodes.

If you’re interested in what else we have to say on Skype for Business or AudioCodes, you can check out our other blogs.

As our practice has grown, we have spent a number of hours in internal best practice intellectual property definition efforts. As a practice, we want to implement our devices in a scalable, repeatable and consistent fashion. All good consultants want this.

To this end, we have traded dozens and dozens of emails. We have created multiple shared Microsoft One Note documents. As we have standardized on the most common implementations of our own Lync/Skype enterprise voice practice, we wanted to consolidated that into one large document — a manifesto as it were. We want to offer that to you.

This certainly is not an end-all-be-all solution for everyone. But, as we surveyed the Microsoft Lync/Skype community we realized this type of technical guide specifically focused around integrating AudioCodes and Skype for Business (Lync) did not exist. So we wrote it.

And you can have it. For free.

We’ve got diagrams, we’ve got screenshots, we’ve got it step by step. But, if you should find yourself stuck or if you have additional questions, drop us a line by emailing us or calling at 502-240-0404 and we’ll be happy to work through it with you.
