A public switched telephone network (PSTN) usage record specifies a class of call (such as internal, local, or long distance) that can be made by various users or groups of users in an organization. For details, see PSTN Usage Records in the Planning documentation.

To view a PSTN usage record by using Lync Server Control Panel

  1. Log on to the computer as a member of the RTCUniversalServerAdmins group, or as a member of the CsVoiceAdministrator, CsServerAdministrator, or CsAdministrator role. For details, see Delegate Setup Permissions.

  2. Open a browser window, and then enter the Admin URL to open the Lync Server Control Panel. For details about the different methods you can use to start Lync Server Control Panel, see Open Lync Server Administrative Tools.

  3. In the left navigation bar, click Voice Routing and then click PSTN Usage.

  4. On the PSTN Usage page, highlight the PSTN usage record you want to view, click Edit and then click Show details.

    A read-only page of the selected PSTN usage record shows the associated routes and associated voice policies.
