Lync Network Readiness Assessment

This is a three-day instructor-led course that targets the needs of Professionals with data networking experience who take part in the planning, design and deployment of the Lync Unified Communications solution in the enterprise.

This course focuses on four key areas:

  • Implementation methodology, including defining methodology phases, identifying phase deliverables and preparing for traffic simulation.
  • Analysing the network environment, including review of WAN topology, Wi-Fi infrastructure, Quality of Server approaches and media flow scenarios, analysing the network for optimal performance and monitoring and managing networks.
  • Performing usage modeling, including modeling RTC traffic media flows and Lync traffic per location, calculating traffic volume by using the Lync bandwidth calculator and analysing how predicted traffic impacts a network.
  • Analysing customer data and measurements, including policies collected from the discovery phase and historical data usage, planning simulation traffic, analysing results from traffic simulation and formulating recommendations.

After completing this course, students will be able to:

  • Understand network assessments
  • Understand common network concepts, terms and processes
  • Use recommended practices for network readiness assessments that pertain to Lync Server and Unified Communication (UC) solutions in general
  • Understand the Microsoft Lync Network Readiness Assessment Methodology

This course targets the needs of network analysts, networking engineers and system integrators who plan, design and deploy UC solutions using Lync Server 2013 in the enterprise. Students should have strong knowledge of data networking, an industry or vendor qualification (CompTIA Network+ or similar) and be able to translate business requirements into technical and networking requirements for a UC solution. Students should be familiar with Network Readiness Assessment methodology and related tools, such as the Lync bandwidth calculator.

This course is also aimed at professionals who may have focused on third-party UC solutions, which perform network assessments and readiness evaluations. They will use this course to update their skills and knowledge to apply to Lync UC solutions in their enterprise.

Before attending this course, students must have:

  • Knowlede of Local Area Network/Wide Area Network (LAN/WAN) (COMPTIA Network+ certification or equivalent experience)
  • Knowledge of Lync Server 2013 and Lync Online
  • Knowledge of Enterprise Voice and Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP)

Students attending this course should have experience with network assessments. They should also have sufficient knowledge of Lync Server 2013 and Lync Online to understand the features that impact LAN/WAN traffic. It is not necessary for students to have a MCSE: Communication, although many students will have attained this certification. Completion of Microsoft Courses MS20336: Core Solutions of Microsoft Lync Server 2013 and MS20337: Enterprise Voice and Online Services with Microsoft Lync Server 2013 far exceed the level of knowledge of Lync required for this class.
