More Than Instant Messaging
The Challenge With Lync
 Deployment requirements are complex
 Often involve separate UC, application and network owners
 Lack of visibility into performance, metrics, and diagnostics
 Low quality experiences slow adoption, increase trouble tickets, reduce ROI

End to End QoS and Contextual Reporting Solution
Microsoft Lync SDN Integration with OneFabric Connect API
Call Flow Process
1. End User initiates a call
• Request is sent to the Lync Front
End Server - SIP
2. Lync SDN API passes
• Source – Destination IP
• UDP Ports used by RTP
• Type of Call
3. OneFabric Connect locates devices and
users and creates dynamic profile on the
switch that applies QoS to the flow/call
• Each Packet is marked for QoS
throughout the network
• Leverages existing QoS
mechanisms in the core
• Lync Controller provides ongoing
information to Extreme NetSight on
Jitter and MOS
5. Call Termination
• Remove QoS A
• Add MOS data to end Report

SDN integration - Why does it matter for Lync?
 Prioritizing MS Lync based on UDP port ranges or DSCP does not work reliably
– UDP port ranges can accidently prioritize other applications using the same ports,
results on QoS degradation for MS Lync
– DSCP based marking is only supported on MS endpoints, no support for iOS, Android
etc
 See also Microsoft TechNet
– Enabling QoS in Lync Server 2013 for devices that are not based on Windows. By default,
QoS is disabled for computers and other devices (such as iPhones) that run other
operating systems. Although you can use Lync Server to enable and disable Quality of Service
for devices, you typically cannot use the product to modify the DSCP codes used by these
devices.
– Configuring Quality of Service policies in Lync Server 2013 for clients running on Windows 7 or
Windows 8. Note that Microsoft Lync Server 2013 does not support QoS for other
Windows operating systems, such as Windows Vista or Windows XP.
 Contextual reporting is not available without SDN integration and concurrently
NAC deployed

City of Bellevue, Washington
 Saved nearly $100,000 in program budget by
deploying Lync vs. traditional IP/PBX System
 Deployed QoS end-to-end to 1,200 users in their
Microsoft Lync environment in “hours vs. weeks”
 Reduced troubleshooting time by quickly identifying
application and network-related issues
 Gained deeper insights into City application
investments and resource use, including Lync user
adoption.
“Using Extreme Networks made it quick and easy for us to
incorporate the built-in QoS to deliver the best user
experience to all of our employees across the City.” Garrett Solberg, Senior Network Architect, City of
Bellevue

Wired and Wireless MS Lync Qualification
 Microsoft Unified Communications
Open Interoperability Program
(UCOIP) is a qualification program
for 3rd party infrastructure and
telephony vendors. Under this
program, devices must pass
rigorous and extensive testing,
and conform to requirements
specified by Microsoft in order to
achieve Lync Server partner
status.
