SBC 1000/2000 4.1.x : Lync Setup

The Sonus SBC 1000/2000 Web Interface includes a built-in step-by-step setup configuration wizard allowing end-users to quickly deploy Sonus SBC 1000/2000 and Lync Server 2010 and 2013.

This functionality is accessible in the WebUI via the Tasks tab under Microsoft© UC Setup > Lync™ Setup.

The wizard produces two different configurations depending on the desired deployment. MS Lync Server Deployment reguires MTLS to be used as the SIP Transport on the Enhanced Media Gateway. In order to comply with Microsoft Lync 2010 Enhance Media Gateway Certification requirements, both the Trusted Root CA and the CA signed Sonus SBC 1000/2000 node certificate must be imported into the Sonus SBC 1000/2000 system. Before you proceed with the final #Lync 2010 Setup step, please follow these prerequisite steps:
