Create network region links in Skype for Business Server 2015


Topic Last Modified: 2015-06-05

Regions within a network are linked through physical WAN connectivity. A network region link creates a link between two regions configured for call admission control (CAC) and sets the bandwidth limitations on audio and video traffic between these regions.

The example topology has a link between the North America and APAC regions, and a link between the EMEA and APAC regions. Each of these region links is constrained by WAN bandwidth, as described in Region Link Bandwidth Information table in Example: Gathering your requirements for call admission control in Skype for Business SErver.

  1. Start the Skype for Business Server Management Shell: Click Start, click All Programs, click Skype for Business 2015, and then click Skype for Business Server Management Shell.

  2. Run the New-CsNetworkRegionLink cmdlet to create the region links and apply appropriate bandwidth policy profiles. For example, run:

    New-CsNetworkRegionLink -NetworkRegionLinkID NA-EMEA-LINK -NetworkRegionID1 NorthAmerica -NetworkRegionID2 EMEA -BWPolicyProfileID 50Mb_Link
    New-CsNetworkRegionLink -NetworkRegionLinkID EMEA-APAC-LINK -NetworkRegionID1 EMEA -NetworkRegionID2 APAC -BWPolicyProfileID 25Mb_Link

  1. Open Skype for Business Server Control Panel.

  2. In the left navigation bar, click Network Configuration.

  3. Click the Region Link navigation button.

  4. Click New.

  5. On the New Region Link page, click Name and then type a name for the network region link.

  6. Click Network Region #1, and then click the network region in the list that you want to link to Network Region #2.

  7. Click Network Region #2, and then click a network region in the list that you want to link to Network Region #1.

  8. Optionally, click Bandwidth policy, and then select the bandwidth policy profile that you want to apply to the network region link.

    Apply a bandwidth policy only if the network region link is bandwidth-constrained and you want to use CAC to control media traffic on that link.
  9. Click Commit.

  10. To finish creating network region links for your topology, repeat steps 4 through 9 with settings for other regions.
