Lync Mobility Service Documentation available to Download

Well this is my new blog I thought I would write something at last.  (Expect more imminently).  I am a huge fan of Lync, as any of my students) and have been waiting for the Mobile Client for ages and finally its here, well at least the documentation to prepare for it is.  Click here

The document will guide you through the process of deploying the Microsoft Lync Server 2010 Mobility Service and the Microsoft Lync Server 2010 Autodiscover Service. When you deploy the Mobility Service, users can use supported iOS, Android, Windows Phone, or Nokia mobile devices to perform such activities as sending and receiving instant messages, viewing contacts, viewing presence. The Mobility Service also enables mobile devices to use some Enterprise Voice features, such as click to join a conference, Call via Work, single number reach, voice mail, and missed calls.    When you use the Microsoft Lync Server 2010 Autodiscover Service along with the Mobility Service, mobile devices can automatically locate the URLs for Lync Server Web Services and the new Mobility Service regardless of network location.

And the actual bits to install on your server are available to here:

Microsoft Lync Server 2010 Mobility Service and Microsoft Lync Server 2010 Autodiscover Service

When you deploy the Microsoft Lync Server 2010 Mobility Service, users can use supported iPhone, iPad, Android, Windows Phone, or Nokia mobile devices to perform such activities as sending and receiving instant messages, viewing contacts, and viewing presence. In addition, mobile devices support some Enterprise Voice features, such as click to join a conference, Call via Work, single number reach, voice mail, and missed calls. By using Call via Work, users can maintain their work identity during a call, which means that the call recipient does not see the caller’s mobile number, and the caller avoids incurring outbound calling charges. With single number reach, a user receives calls on a mobile phone that were dialed to their work number.   When you use the Microsoft Lync Server 2010 Autodiscover Service along with the Mobility Service, mobile devices can automatically locate the URLs for Lync Server Web Services and the new Mobility Service regardless of network location. It supports client connections using either HTTP or HTTPS.

This is not a patch there is a lot more to it.  There are some significant changes that will need to be made in your environment, including:

  • Applying Lync Update CU4 (be careful of the Mediation Server update if you use SIP Trunks)
  • Ensuring your HLB’s support persistence info here
  • Changes to your DNS, certificates, firewalls
  • Federation relationship with the cloud-based Lync Server 2010 Push Notification Service, which is located in the Lync Online datacenter
