Lync Enterprise Voice in a LAB or POC environment (Session Abstract)
How can I play with Lync Enterprise Voice in my LAB/POC without expensive equipment?
I know Lync Enterprise Voice is great but how can I prove this to my boss?
How can I test Dial-In Conferencing and Response Groups as an anonymous caller?
Many customers use a LAB or POC environment to road-test the features of Microsoft Lync. Luckily setting up Lync for basic IM, Presence, Web Conferencing and other core features can be straight forward.
Unfortunately testing the advanced and potentially most beneficial features such as Enterprise Voice, Dial-in Conferencing etc. can be much more challenging.
- Learn how to use some free software and tools to take your LAB/POC to the next level.
- Make sure your LAB/POC has all the features you plan to demo or deploy.
- Show your colleagues how Lync can change how they communicate and work.
