  • Question

  • Hello everyone,

    Very Simple Question: Is it possible to connect third party sip client's with lync server?

    I have a user named "user1" LineURI "5000" and enterprise voice is enabled. I was trying to connect a sip client(3cx), to my front end server with the below credentials: But unable to register.

    User: user1  ID: 5000 Password: user1's password

    I want to connect this only for audio conversation.

  • The only mobile devices that supports multiparty video (conferencing) are Windows 8 /RT devices.

    Although other mobile devices like windows 8 phone, Android, and iPhone can now use voice and video over IP peer to peer, they are not able to perform multiparty video.

    Multiparty video and viewing of shared content are now the only two things missing on the mobile phone platforms.

  • Hi,

    To make use of legacy SIP devices with Lync you will need to call upon a third party. There are a number of solutions available, the ones I am familiar with are NET and Audiocodes.

    The Audiocodes flavour can be integrated into an existing AC gateway if you use one, or used as a separate application and is the one I am familiar with;

    http://pinpoint.microsoft.com/en-gb/applications/audiocodes-sip-phone-support-sps-12884907715

    NET provide a product called SmartSIP that I only know of, and have no real world experience of;

    http://www.net.com/pages/Product.aspx?pgid=229

    I believe there are other similar products available, but in answer to your question; Yes it is possible with third party integration, but not an out of the box feature.

    Kind regards
    Ben

  • Hello,

    Yes that's what I was talking about. Actually I was willing to replace my existing telephony system(asterisk) with Lync. As users are connecting with different sip clients, I was looking for a solution to use same clients for lync.

    One more question. Is it possible to make audio and video conferencing from mobile devices with lync 2010 client. I am having trouble with a/v in mobile phones but IM works very well. I have lync 2013 server.

  • Hi,

    If you replace existing telephony system with Lync, it is easy to deploy several types of Lync clients software for your users. For more details about clients for Lync Server:

    For your second question, you can also refer to Mobile Client feature comparison tables:
