To deploy devices, your topology must be set up for Enterprise Voice. If Enterprise Voice isn’t currently deployed in your organization, we recommend that you use the Microsoft Communications Server Planning Tool to set up your topology for Enterprise Voice.

If you want to allow external access for devices, including the ability to use the Device Update service from an IP phone outside of the firewall, you must also deploy Edge servers. To learn about how to set up your topology for external user access, see Topologies for External User Access.

Analog devices will not appear in Topology Builder.
