Configuring Mobility Policy

 

Topic Last Modified: 2013-02-13

Some information in this topic pertains to Cumulative Updates for Lync Server 2013: February 2013.

Lync Server 2013 provides mobility policies that determine who can use mobility features, Call via Work, voice over IP (VoIP) or video, and whether WiFi will be required for either VoIP or video. The Call via Work feature enables a mobile user to make and receive calls on a mobile phone by using a work phone number instead of the mobile phone number. This feature prevents the called party from seeing the caller's mobile phone number and enables a user to avoid outbound calling charges. Configuring VoIP and video makes it possible for users to receive and make VoIP calls and video. Settings for WiFi usage define if a user’s device will be required to use a WiFi network over a cellular data network.

By default, mobility, Call via Work, and the VoIP and video features are enabled. The settings to require WiFi for VoIp and video are disabled. Administrators can determine who has access to these features by running a cmdlet. You can turn options off globally, by site, or by user.

To be able to use mobility features and Call via Work, users must meet the following prerequisites:

  • Users must be enabled for Lync Server 2013.
  • Users must be enabled for Enterprise Voice.
  • Users must be assigned a mobility policy that has the EnableMobility option set to True.

For users to be able to use Call via Work, they must meet the following two additional prerequisites:

  • Users must be assigned a voice policy that has the Enable simultaneous ringing of phones option selected.
  • Users must be assigned a mobility policy that has the EnableOutsideVoice option set to True.
noteNote:
Users who are not enabled for Enterprise Voice can use their mobile devices to make Lync to Lync Voice over IP (VoIP) calls, or can join conferences by using the Click to Join link on their mobile devices, if you assign those users the appropriate options for voice policy. For details, see Defining Your Mobility Requirements.

For details about enabling users for Lync Server 2013, see Disable or Re-Enable User Account for Lync Server. For details about enabling users for Enterprise Voice, see Enable Users for Enterprise Voice. For details about setting voice policy options, see Modify a Voice Policy and Configure PSTN Usage Records.
