The A/V Edge service provide a way for your internal users (users who are logged on to your organizational network) to share audio and video with external users (users who are not logged on to your organizational network). The A/V Edge service is primarily managed by using A/V Edge configuration settings, setting that can be configured at the site scope or at the service scope (that is, can be configured for an individual A/V Edge server).

To return information about the A/V Edge configuration settings in use in your organization, you must use Windows PowerShell and the Get-CsAVEdgeConfiguration cmdlet. For more information, see the help topic for the Get-CsAVEdgeConfiguration cmdlet.

Information returned from the Get-CsAVEdgeConfiguration cmdlet will look similar to this:

Identity              : Global
MaxTokenLifetime      : 08:00:00
MaxBandwidthPerUserKb : 10000
MaxBandwidthPerPortKb : 3000

  • The following command returns information about all the A/V Edge configuration settings currently in use in your organization:


  • To return information about a specific collection of A/V Edge configuration settings, specify the Identity of that collection when running the Get-CsAVEdgeConfiguration cmdlet. For example, this command returns information only for the settings applied to the Redmond site:

    Get-CsAVEdgeConfiguration -Identity "site:Redmond"

  • And this command returns information only for settings applied the a specific A/V Edge server:

    Get-CsAVEdgeConfiguration -Identity ""
