Lync + Cisco CME, Ring multiple extensions? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    Currently in our organization we have a Cisco-1760 and CME doing our PBX and call routing with a bunch of 7960s. We are thinking of making the transition to Lync 2010 and and are wondering how interoperability will work. I have a couple questions hopefully someone can answer them.

    1) What would be the best way about going about ringing multiple internal extensions? We have an internal 3digit plan for phones currently, does lync have the ability to ring multiple numbers when a call comes in? We would need it to ring the Lync desktop client, their current Cisco IP phone, and their mobile number.

    2) Can the lync client run on machines that are NOT in AD. For example a personal laptop that connects in via VPN?

  • 1- using simultaneous ring you can ring more than 1 phone. (2)

    1B- using NET SmartSIP you can register select Cisco phones directly to Lync.

    2-yes, the lync client an run on PC's not joined to the domain, you just need to type in credentials into Lync then. No VPN required for Lync external clients.

  • Hi,

    Just additional to Matt.

    When you log in lync client on non-domain PC via VPN, you need to download and install the internal CA certificate chain on the PC first.
