A network intersite policy defines bandwidth limitations between sites that have direct WAN links between them.

For details, see the Lync Server Management Shell documentation for the following cmdlets:

A network intersite policy is required only if there is a direct cross link between two network sites.

In the example topology North America region, there is a direct link between the Reno and Albuquerque sites. These two sites require an intersite policy that applies an appropriate bandwidth policy profile. The following example applies the 20Mb_Link profile.

To create a network intersite policy

  1. Start the Lync Server Management Shell: Click Start, click All Programs, click Microsoft Lync Server 2013, and then click Lync Server Management Shell.

  2. Run the New-CsNetworkInterSitePolicy cmdlet to create network intersite policies and apply an appropriate bandwidth policy profile for two sites that have a direct cross link. For example, run:

    Copy Code
    New-CsNetworkInterSitePolicy -InterNetworkSitePolicyID Reno_Albuquerque -NetworkSiteID1 Reno -NetworkSiteID2 Albuquerque -BWPolicyProfileID 20Mb_Link
  3. Repeat step 2 as needed to create network intersite policies for all network sites pairs that have a direct cross link.
