Federation and external access provide two important capabilities: federation enables users to communicate with people outside your organization, while external access enables users to connect to Microsoft Lync Server 2013 from outside the internal network. The cmdlets available for managing federation and external access in Lync Server 2013 let you determine who your users can (and cannot) communicate with, and determine whether or not those users can connect to Lync Server without having to log on to the internal network.
