Monitor end-user scenarios from different geographical regions

Uses multiple System Center Operations Manager (SCOM) agents,
inside or outside the data center, to run synthetic transactions at
regular intervals.
• End-to-end scenario availability and other reports

Using SCOM data warehouse and reporting engine
• Rich error reporting for synthetic transaction failures

Topology Changes
• Server Role Consolidation
• IPv6 Support
• Lync Hybrid Deployment
• Office Web Apps Server
• Director Role Changes
• Enterprise Voice Topology Changes
IPv6 Support
• IPv4 depletion has caused enterprises to start planning
for transition to IPv6 seriously
• Exponential growth of mobile devices has forced
carriers to start issuing IPv6 addresses
• Goals for this release :

Lync scenarios work well in a dual-stack IPv6/IPv4
environment

IPv6–capable: If IPv4 is disabled from the network, Lync
should continue to work for all the basic functionalities
• Recommend converting entire deployment to Lync Server
2013 before enabling IPv6, for simplifying interoperability

New Enterprise Voice Routing Changes
Lync introduces new enhancements to voice routing, including:

Call Forwarding – You can forward calls to other phones and client devices.
Enabled by default

Simultaneous Ringing – Incoming calls ring on an additional phone (for
example, a mobile phone) or other endpoint devices. Enabled by default

Manager/Delegate Simultaneous Ringing – Delegates can setup
simultaneous ringing to their mobile devices for incoming calls to their
manager

Voicemail Escape – When simultaneous ringing is configured, and the
user’s cellphone is turned off, out of battery or out of range, Lync Server
2013 can determine that an incoming call was immediately routed to
voicemail, and hang up that endpoint so that the call can continue to ring
to endpoints of the user

Caller ID presentation – Provides the administrator the flexibility to modify
the format of the calling party’s phone number

Conference Dial-Out for users not enabled for enterprise voice – Users that
are not enabled for Enterprise Voice are now able to do conferencing dialout based on the organizer’s voice policy
