Lync and CUCM
I'm investigating options for using Lync as our audio and video conference
solution.

What I'm looking to do:

Ring Cisco desk phone and Lync client at the same time (fairly easy)
Call from either desk phone or Lync. (fairly easy)
Join audio conference form desk phone or Lync (this one is easy)
Join video conference only using Lync (this one is easy)
Join video conference audio from desk phone and video from Lync without
having to join the conference twice because then this person wouldn't get
focus when speaking. (This seems like the only nasty part if it is even
possibe)

I would like to avoid CUCI-Lync and RCC.

Erick,

Your last item is going to be difficult, unless you transfer the call from your Lync client to the Cisco phone after joining the conference. That's not really a good user-friendly answer.

I don't think we're going to explore that path any longer. There isn't a good way to do it, and frankly the things I've read from MS employees on Lync makes me believe the two may not play well toggether in the not too distant future.

Nothing official. Just the idea that MS is actively positioning Lync as a 'true' UC and Cisco replacement.

Although, it seems that every few years these two have problems then smooth it over after a while.

Re: Lync and CUCM [ In reply to ]
Reminds me of how in Exchange 2007 it was voicemail platform, then it could
do basic calls, then you could do call forking ( ring office extension and
the office communicator client) and then a Service pack came out, and you
couldn't do that any more.
