deploying mediation servers in a pool from 2 different location in a mediation pool RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All , Good day

    Can anyone suggest me the better approach in deploying a new mediation server in a branch location

    we are planning to deploy a new mediation server in location 2 (lync 2010)

    1.       Adding the new mediation server in location 2 to the existing Lync Mediation pool in Location 1 (pool already has 2 servers) – Will it cause any quality issue to existing location 1 users / any additional considerations ? (i mean the mediation pool will have 3 servers - 2 from same location , 1 from other location)
    2.      Creating a new mediation pool for location 2 à associate it with location 1 FE pool à but no new PSTN gateway à can we use the existing one with a new DNS name  ?

  • In the branch site the recommendation would be to use SBA or SBS Lync Server these solution come with built in Mediation and front-end Components

    Please refer http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/gg398234.aspx

    From my understanding in Lync server 2010 the mediation server to PSTN Gateway is a 1:1 mapping

  • Hi Rajbabu,

    Mediation Servers at the central site can be used to route calls for IP-PBXs or PSTN gateways at branch sites. If you deploy SIP trunks, however, you must deploy a Mediation Server at the site where each trunk terminates. Having a Mediation Server at the central site route calls for an IP-PBX or PSTN gateway at a branch site does not require the use of media bypass. However, if you can enable media bypass, doing so will reduce media path latency and, consequently, result in improved media quality because the media path is no longer required to follow the signaling path. Media bypass will also decrease the processing load on the pool.
