June '15 Update
Lync Server communications software is a real-time unified communications application that enables peer-to-peer audio and video (A/V) calling, conferencing, and collaboration and relies on an optimized, reliable network infrastructure to deliver high-quality media sessions between clients. This guide provides a model for managing the network infrastructure for Lync Server 2010 and Lync Server 2013, consisting of three phases—planning, monitoring, and troubleshooting. These phases can apply to new Lync Server deployments or to existing deployments. In new Lync Server deployments, your organization must begin from the planning phase. In existing deployments, your organization can start at the planning phase for major upgrades or for integrating new sites into the Lync Server ecosystem. Organizations with existing deployments can also begin from the monitoring or troubleshooting phases, if you are trying to achieve a healthy state.
