Mediation Server Bypass

In Lync Server, the flow of media traffic can be configured to potentially bypass the Mediation Server. The advantage of doing this is that service quality improves by reducing unnecessary transcoding, packet loss, and latency when the Mediation server can be skipped.

This functionality can also potentially reduce bandwidth used in cases in which a Mediation Server and a PSTN gateway (or PBX) are at different sites. By bypassing media processing by the Mediation Server, call scalability can be improved because one simply doesn’t tie up resources that aren’t needed.
