Enterprise Network Requirements for Microsoft Lync Server 2013

Play Enterprise Network Requirements for Microsoft Lync Server 2013


In the middle of discussions on deploying Lync Server 2013, often times questions around the way Lync interacts with the network arise….How much bandwidth needs to be provided in the WAN for Lync audio, video and other types of traffic? How big should the “pipe to the Internet” be for Lync users? Will Lync need Quality of Service (QoS) and what kind of QoS? How can one guarantee that critical data is still be able to flow through the network while users are communicating using Lync? Can I prevent Lync from flooding my network with traffic? Come to this session to see how Lync Server 2013 interacts with enterprise networks, learn how to answer these and similar questions, and how to plan for your deployment.

    Excellent topic and very timely for planning next steps in my org.

    On the slide "Lync 2013 - Video peer-to-peer" you mentioned that used video resolution (and used bandwidth) depends on the Lync's window side (how large picture I would like to see).

    If the Lync client is sitting on the background, or there is a presentation ongoing, is Lync enough smart to detect that it is not requirement to send video if the video dialog is not visible? Or will it still spend the same bandwidth (e.g. full screen).
