Lync Mobility (A basic overview)

Favad Qaisar 17 January 2012 0

Microsoft Lync 2010 offers mobility. It is a way of life for today’s business professionals. It makes communicating easier and more engaging by delivering a single unified communications experience across PC laptops, browsers, telephones, and mobile phones.

It allows you to connect from anywhere. You can stay connected with your Lync from almost anywhere and everywhere with an internet connection. That is all you need, no VPN or specialized hardware is required.

You can use a PC laptop for a complete Lync experience outside the office. Alternatively, any phone alongside most web browsers can deliver a rich multi-media conferencing and instant messaging experience. Lync users can also seamlessly transfer a call or audio conference from their PC-based Lync client to their phone or mobile phone without disrupting the conversation, so Lync users can stay connected even if they need to be on the move.

Lync mobile clients can stay connected while on the move. Microsoft Lync 2010 takes the power of unified communications mobile. It gives you the capability to join conferences with a single touch. It is important to note here that no access code or pin is required for this. You can stay in touch while controlling your offline availability. This means that users can utilize their off hours to work if they want to. Another important feature is the ability to communicate with others while maintaining a single static identity. Call-via-work allows outbound calls using your Enterprise Voice number, making it easier for others to recognize calls from the Lync mobile client. You can connect with confidence through channel encryption, transport layer security (TLS) support, and perimeter/internal network protection that help safeguard your communications.

Talking a little bit about deploying the Microsoft Lync Server 2010 Mobility 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. As mentioned earlier, 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.
