Delivering Lync Real-Time Communications Over Wi-Fi

The Delivering Lync Real-Time Communications Over Wi-Fi white paper is now available from the Microsoft Download Center. This white paper describes how Lync 2010 communications software, and previous releases, Office Communications Server 2007 R2 and Office Communications Server 2007, can be successfully implemented over wireless local area networks (Wi-Fi), even though these workloads have not yet been validated with voice and video (real-time media) over wireless networks.

Introducing the Lync Pilot Success Kit

The key to a successful Lync rollout and on-going user-adoption is a well planned and executed pilot. The importance of the pilot phase cannot be overlooked. The Lync Pilot Success Kit is a collection of tools, documentation, and templates that helps project teams plan, deploy, monitor, and evaluate the success of their pilot. The Lync Pilot Success Kit assists with project planning, staffing needs and expectations, user communications, defining success criteria, and proactive monitoring, troubleshooting, and support.
