Configure network sites for CAC in Lync Server 2013
Topic Last Modified: 2012-09-05
|If you have already created network sites for E9-1-1 or media bypass, you can modify the existing network sites to apply a bandwidth policy profile by using the Set-CsNetworkSite cmdlet. For an example of how to modify a network site, see Create or modify a network site in Lync Server 2013.|
Network sites are the offices or locations within each network region of call admission control (CAC), E9-1-1, and media bypass deployments. Use the following procedures to create network sites that align to network sites in the example network topology for CAC. These procedures show how to create and configure network sites that are constrained by WAN bandwidth and therefore require bandwidth policies that limit real-time audio or video traffic flow.
In the example CAC deployment, the North America region has six sites. Three of these sites are constrained by WAN bandwidth: Reno, Portland, and Albuquerque. The other three sites, which are not constrained by WAN bandwidth: New York, Chicago, and Detroit. For an example of how to create or modify those other network sites, see Create or modify a network site in Lync Server 2013.
To view the example network topology, see Example: Gathering your requirements for call admission control in Lync Server 2013 in the Planning documentation.
|In the following procedure, Lync Server Management Shell is used to create a network site. For details about using Lync Server Control Panel to create a network site, see Create or modify a network site in Lync Server 2013.|
Start the Lync Server Management Shell: Click Start, click All Programs, click Microsoft Lync Server 2013, and then click Lync Server Management Shell.
Run the New-CsNetworkSite cmdlet to create network sites and apply an appropriate bandwidth policy profile to each site. For example, run:
New-CsNetworkSite -NetworkSiteID Reno -Description "NA:Branch office for sales force" -NetworkRegionID NorthAmerica -BWPolicyProfileID 10MB_Link
New-CsNetworkSite -NetworkSiteID Portland -Description "NA:Branch office for marketing force" -NetworkRegionID NorthAmerica -BWPolicyProfileID 5MB_Link
New-CsNetworkSite -NetworkSiteID Albuquerque -Description "NA:Branch office for SouthWest sales" -NetworkRegionID EMEA -BWPolicyProfileID 10MB_Link
To finish creating network sites for the entire example topology, repeat step 2 for the bandwidth-constrained network sites in the EMEA and APAC regions.
