About Lync / Skype for Business servers
Pexip Infinity uses Lync / Skype for Business* servers to route outbound MS-SIP calls.
Outbound calls are made from Pexip Infinity when:
- a conference participant uses an Infinity Connect client to add another participant to the call
- the administrator manually dials out to a participant from a Virtual Meeting Room
- a participant is automatically dialed out to from a Virtual Meeting Room
- a third party uses the API to place a call to a participant
- the Pexip Distributed Gateway is used to interwork a call.
You can configure the addresses of one or more Lync/SfB servers within Pexip Infinity. These can be Front End Servers or a Directors; they cannot be Edge Servers.
Within an on-prem Lync / Skype for Business environment, you must then associate a specific Lync/SfB server with a System location, Call Routing Rule or Virtual Reception to instruct Pexip Infinity to use that Lync/SfB server when it places an outbound MS-SIP call from a Conferencing Node in that location, or when it matches that routing rule.
Within a public DMZ Lync / Skype for Business deployment, you must ensure that a Pexip Infinity location is not configured to route calls to a specific Lync/SfB server. This is to ensure that each Conferencing Node uses DNS to locate an appropriate Lync/SfB system via which to route outbound calls.
To add, edit or delete Lync/SfB servers, go to .
The available options are:
|Name||The name used to refer to this Lync/SfB server in the Pexip Infinity Administrator interface.|

To associate a Lync/SfB server with a System location, go to , to associate it with a Call Routing Rule, go to , and to associate it with a Virtual Reception that is acting as an IVR gateway to scheduled and ad hoc Lync/SfB meetings, go to .
