This section guides you through the deployment of Microsoft Lync Server 2010 Enterprise Voice.

Before You Begin

This deployment documentation assumes that you already accomplished all of the following:

  1. Read the planning documentation: topics from the Planning for Enterprise Voice section of the Planning documentation.

  2. Finalized plans for features and components to deploy with this workload.

  3. Ran Planning Tool to design a topology that reflects your deployment decisions.

  4. Opened the topology design in Topology Builder, as described in Defining and Configuring the Topology in the Deployment documentation.

    Installation of Topology Builder is out of scope for this section of the documentation because it is part of the deployment process for the internal pool. For details, see Install Lync Server Administrative Tools in the Deployment documentation.

Furthermore, you must have already deployed Microsoft Lync Server 2010, Enterprise Edition at central sites and branch sites that correspond to the reference topology you chose to deploy. You cannot deploy Enterprise Voice components until you have defined, published, and installed files for at least one internal pool, and you must use Topology Builder to define and publish an internal pool.

How to Use This Documentation

As you read the documentation in this section, understand that the reference topology on which your deployment is based dictates the topics that you must read and the steps within them that you must perform. To accommodate customized deployments which deviate from deployment steps for a particular reference topology, some topics also provide alternate procedures to follow at the appropriate phases of the deployment process. All topics explicitly direct you next to the most relevant topic for the deployment of your chosen reference topology.

Reference Topologies

To view reference topologies with examples of where Lync Server Enterprise Voice server roles can be deployed (and their relationship to one another and other Lync Server 2010 server roles), see Reference Topologies in the Planning documentation.

To view a reference topology that illustrates and explains a sample call admission control deployment, including network regions, network sites, and subnets, see Example: Gathering the Required Information for Call Admission Control in the Planning documentation.

Next Steps: Configure a Trunk or Verify Topology and Install Files?

To deploy Enterprise Voice at a central site, continue reading the topics in this section. To deploy Enterprise Voice at a branch site, skip to Deploying Branch Sites in the Deployment documentation.

The documentation in this section includes procedures for deployments in which a Mediation Server is collocated on each Front End Server or Standard Edition server, as recommended, and also for deployments with a stand-alone Mediation Server pool.

If you used Topology Builder to define and publish a topology that collocates a Mediation Server on each Front End Server or Standard Edition server, you can skip to the following content because Deployment Wizard already automatically installed the files for Mediation Server when you installed files for your Front End Server pool or Standard Edition server:

If you used Topology Builder to define and publish a Mediation Server in a stand-alone pool, you can use the following content:
