3 Monitoring Improvements Geo-availability monitoring  Monitor end-user scenarios from different geographical regions  Uses multiple System Center Operations Manager (SCOM) agents, inside or outside the data center, to run synthetic transactions at regular intervals. End-to-end scenario availability and other reports  Using SCOM data warehouse and reporting engine Rich error reporting for synthetic transaction failures

4 Robust Server/Client Environment Communicating and connecting in Lync Collaborating using voice and video in Lync Lync is available virtually anytime, anywhere on almost any device  Find, connect, and communicate with Microsoft Office users  Connect and communicate with external users  Manage Lync IM & presence and persistent chat features  Lifelike video experience with multi-view video and higher resolutions  Web conferencing  Voice conferencing  Office integration  Lync is available on a variety of mobile devices  Lync is available on the web  Lync is available on room systems  Lync as a Hosted Service

5 Virtual Desktop Infrastructure The storage and execution of a desktop workload (operating system, applications, and data) is centralized on a virtual machine in the data center Presentation of the UI is managed via a remote desktop protocol (such as Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) or Independent Computing Architecture (ICA)) to client devices Remote Desktop Servers Remote Desktop Client

6 Topology Changes Server Role Consolidation IPv6 Support Lync Hybrid Deployment Office Web Apps Server Director Role Changes Enterprise Voice Topology Changes

7 IPv6 Support IPv4 depletion has caused enterprises to start planning for transition to IPv6 seriously Exponential growth of mobile devices has forced carriers to start issuing IPv6 addresses Goals for this release :  Lync scenarios work well in a dual-stack IPv6/IPv4 environment  IPv6–capable: If IPv4 is disabled from the network, Lync should continue to work for all the basic functionalities Recommend converting entire deployment to Lync Server 2013 before enabling IPv6, for simplifying interoperability

27 Collaboration and Audio Control Changes Multiparty video and people focus make Lync more personal Office integration makes Lync more productive Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) and web client (with A/V) extend the reach of Lync

28 Enterprise Voice Changes New Enterprise Voice Routing Changes New Call Management Features New Call Park Application Features New Hybrid Voice Features Configuring Hybrid Voice in Lync

29 New Enterprise Voice Routing Changes Lync introduces new enhancements to voice routing, including:  Call Forwarding – You can forward calls to other phones and client devices. Enabled by default  Simultaneous Ringing – Incoming calls ring on an additional phone (for example, a mobile phone) or other endpoint devices. Enabled by default  Manager/Delegate Simultaneous Ringing – Delegates can setup simultaneous ringing to their mobile devices for incoming calls to their manager  Voic Escape – When simultaneous ringing is configured, and the user’s cellphone is turned off, out of battery or out of range, Lync Server 2013 can determine that an incoming call was immediately routed to voic , and hang up that endpoint so that the call can continue to ring to endpoints of the user  Caller ID presentation – Provides the administrator the flexibility to modify the format of the calling party’s phone number  Conference Dial-Out for users not enabled for enterprise voice – Users that are not enabled for Enterprise Voice are now able to do conferencing dial- out based on the organizer’s voice policy

30 New Call Management Features Lync New Call Management features: NewResponseGroup Application Features Route and queue incoming calls to designated persons for special purposes New Announcement Application Features Configure how to handle phone calls made to numbers that are valid but not assigned to a user or common area Transfer the calls to a predetermined destination, have them answered with a recorded announcement, or both New Call Park Application Features Put a call on hold and then retrieve it later from any phone

31 New Call Park Application Features New Lync Call Park Features: New disaster recovery mechanisms in the form of failover and failback processes  Support recovery of the Lync Server Call Park service Both online and on-premises users can now park calls and retrieve parked calls Support for disaster recovery of the Call Park Service is enabled as part of the configuration and deployment of paired Front End pools
