MediaCloud

Many enterprises recognize the value Microsoft Lync brings for instant messaging, presence and conferencing. But advanced Lync workloads, like enterprise voice, remote user enablement and federation, are often a challenge. Enter MediaCloud, a completely new approach to enabling large-scale Lync deployments that delivers unprecedented global communications capabilities.
 
MediaCloud creates a blended on-premises/cloud environment where core Lync Server infrastructure and applications remain in the enterprise, under the management of enterprise IT staff, while the mediation, edge, and federation portions of the Lync environment are hosted in globally distributed West IP Communications datacenters.
