Microsoft Lync 2013 and Skype for Business 2015 federation

Lifesize Cloud supports the Skype for Business 2015 and Microsoft Lync 2013 environments. If your deployment is not configured as an open federation, you must add lync.lifesizecloud.com as a federated partner.  You also need:

  • A publicly issued certificate installed on the Edge server
  • For information about configuring your firewall, see information on Opening Ports from the Microsoft Lync and Skype for Business section
  • Updated SRV record for your Lync Domain

 Microsoft Lync 2013 Federation

  2. On the Microsoft Lync server control panel, select Federation and External Access.
  3. On the External Access Policy pane, enable Federated user access. Click Edit > Show Details then check Enable Communications with Federated Users.
  4. On the Access Edge Configuration pane, select Enable Federation and Enable partner domain discovery.
  5. On the SIP Federated Domains pane, add a new domain pointing to lifesizecloud.com. The Access Edge service (FQDN) will be lync.lifesizecloud.com.
