Walk Through – Lync Server 2010 Edge Deployment (Part 6)

This week, what we going to deploy is Lync Edge.

This walkthrough we will define a new Edge server topology to allow remote access for users and federated partners for conferencing, A/V, and SIP, as well as provide public IM connectivity.

We will be using Topology Builder to download the current Lync Server deployment, add the Edge server, and define the services. Then publish the new topology into the central management store. Export the new topology, so that it can be used to configure and install the Edge server.

let’s get started!
