Configuring Mobility Policy

 

Topic Last Modified: 2012-01-18

Cumulative update for Lync Server 2010: November 2011 introduces a new mobility policy that determines who can use mobility features and who can use the Call via Work feature. Call via Work allows 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 allows a user to avoid outbound calling charges.

By default, both mobility and Call via Work features are enabled. 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 2010.

  • Users must be enabled for Enterprise Voice.

  • Users must be assigned a mobility policy that has the EnableMobility option set to True.

noteNote:
In Lync Server 2010, Remote User is not a requirement for users.

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 join conferences by using the Click to Join link on their mobile devices, if you assign those users a voice policy. For details, see Defining Your Mobility Requirements.

For details about enabling users for Lync Server 2010, see Enable or Disable Users for Lync Server 2010. 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.
