Whether inside or outside the four walls of the enterprise, Microsoft Lync enables users to communicate securely and stay connected with colleagues and customers, from virtually wherever they choose. Millions of people, their communications and the applications they use every day are connected – together – using Lync, so it’s no surprise that more and more enterprises are considering Microsoft Lync as a platform for Unified Communications and enterprise voice.
Session border controllers (SBCs) serve a critical role in enabling and activating Microsoft Lync within enterprise Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) networks. Integrating Sonus SBCs into Lync deployments helps enterprises' Unified Communications (UC) vision become a reality. These powerful network devices protect, secure, simplify and standardize real-time, SIP-based multimedia communications, including voice over IP (VoIP) and video. As enterprises increasingly utilize Microsoft Lync in mission-critical applications, the survivable branch application (SBA) of the Sonus SBC 1000 and SBC 2000 Session Border Controllers ensures that intra-branch communications and business-continuity are maintained - either through a 3G/4G or PSTN connection – if the wide area network (WAN) fails. Sonus is the only vendor in the industry to deliver enhanced SBA capability with 3G/4G failover capability.
As a Microsoft Gold Communications Partner, Sonus understands the unique interoperability, security and scalability requirements for successful adoption of Lync Enterprise Voice into new and existing voice and PBX environments. Sonus SBCs enhance and extend the UC experience in the enterprise, at the branch office and for the mobile workforce.
