You can add a test device to the Test Device page and then use this device to verify the functionality of new updates before deploying the updates to production devices. You can test a device globally (throughout your entire Microsoft Lync Server 2010 environment) or within a single site. You identify a test device by its Media Access Control (MAC) address or serial number. When you add a device, it appears in the list on the Test Device page of the Lync Server Control Panel.
