Planning for Enterprise Voice
Topic Last Modified: 2011-01-25
The deployment process for Enterprise Voice depends on your existing topology, infrastructure, and the Enterprise Voice functionality that you want to support. The required procedures will depend on what features you choose, but there are other planning considerations that you must make at a high level.
In general, consider the type and number of sites you want to deploy and their geographical locations, the call volume at each site, the types of network links that connect sites, whether you want to provide redundancy and failover for voice functionality for each site, and whether you want to use existing PBX equipment. Certain considerations, such as high availability, are taken into account when you plan for Microsoft Lync Server 2010 communications software as a whole and are reiterated in topics throughout this section as needed.
