Lync Enterprise Voice For Dummies (Graphic: Business Wire)

Sonus Networks, Inc. (Nasdaq: SONS), a global leader in SIP communications, today announced the release of the definitive educational guide for companies who want to best understand how to maximize Microsoft Lync deployments. Lync Enterprise Voice For Dummies is published in partnership with John Wiley and Sons, Inc., publisher of the world’s best-selling For Dummies® reference series.

Linking Today’s Enterprise Together

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, using applications such as instant messaging (IM), collaboration, conferencing and voice. A January 2013 Webtorials study titled, “ Enterprises Place 2013 Unified Communications Bets: How Many Horses in This Race?” found there is considerable enterprise awareness and interest in Microsoft Lync as a platform for Unified Communications (UC) and enterprise voice. Fifty-eight percent of those surveyed already plan to deploy Microsoft for IM and presence, and it appears to have the inside track with many buyers when it comes to more advanced UC functions like web meetings, desktop sharing and advanced directory services.

Lync Enterprise Voice For Dummies examines new features and capabilities enabled by Lync Enterprise Voice and how companies large and small can use Lync to increase productivity while reducing communications expenses. The book also educates readers about the critical role of leveraging session border controllers (SBCs) to realize the full benefits of a Lync Enterprise Voice deployment.

SBCs serve a critical role in enabling and activating UC platforms, such as Microsoft Lync, across enterprise Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) networks. These powerful network devices protect, secure, simplify and standardize real-time, SIP-based multimedia communications, including Voice over IP (VoIP) and video. A Microsoft Gold Communications Partner, Sonus helps enterprises optimize Microsoft Lync Enterprise Voice deployments by securing SIP trunking services at the network border and providing a more seamless flow of SIP-based multi-vendor media for UC.
