PIC updates

The OCS XMPP gateway is rather limited since it doesn't support Google Apps.

 

No doubt Skype will be addressed in some form, but what would be useful for us is support for the Chinese QQ IM network. While not used much outside China it is massive there.

Sort out the remainig RBAC limitations

Lync RBAC architecture supposed to solve all the flaws, that OCS had regarding the inability to share administration taks among multiple business/organizational entities, like delegation of some well strictly scoped tasks to lower-privileged administrators. With Lync most of these issues are perfectly resolved. However, some of the RBAC limitations are still painful, if Lync is deployed in a multi-country huge international... more »

Night Bell Functionality

We have this installed in a Manufacturing Environment, and during normal business hours, there is a receptionist to answer the calls. but during off-hours, we need to have the ability to have the System ring over the PA system. That being said, we would need to have the functionality of someone answering the phone from any phone in the plant - entering in a number sequence, and then the call would be answered - and... more »

Additional Codec Support

With the increasing number of ITSPs that support Direct SIP to Lync, it would be very helpful if the Lync Mediation Role supported the G.729 codec. This would reduce the bandwidth requirements on the link between the Lync server and the ITSP.

Also, it would be nice if Lync could support H.264 for HD video. Those of us who are stuck with a non-Polycom video conferencing infrastructure have trouble justifying paying... more »

Join Conference Audio/Video via WLM

Lync Web App + Dial-In Conference Number works pretty well.

A neat feature would be to make use of the PIC Audio/Video connectivity with Windows Live Messenger to allow a guest to be "called" based on their Windows Live ID. All the collaboration would still use Lync Web App, but Audio and Video would be handled via Windows Live Messenger.

This would allow Lync Web App to be useable for guest users without having to... more »

Push IMs To All Clients

I have a mobile client, a web client and a desktop client and I regularly lose instant messages because the Lync server routes them to the last logged in client instead of all clients.

Or more accurately Lync offers the IM to all signed in devices to be received. If the IM is not received within a period of time, Lync defaults to accepting it on the last active endpoint.

In practice what happens is you do something... more »

Parked Calls (Through Gateway) After Park TimeOut Act Weird

UserB (person call parked for) are able to answer a parked call (external call incoming /thru pstn/sip) EVEN after "CallPickupTimeoutThreshold" completes and when the call is ringing back to the user who parked the call (UserA).

So at this time the call is ringing back to UserA, but if UserB picks up the parked call (and they can), UserA will continue to ring!

If UserA answers, this call becomes a 3 party conference,... more »
