Conferencing in Lync Server 2010 describes any type of audio or video communication that involves three or more people. Although this chapter focuses on non-voice deployments of Lync Server 2010, this really refers to Voice over IP and as such, this section also takes into consideration PC-to-PC conferences as part of an audio conference. Because both scheduled conferences and ad hoc conferences can be initiated by users, it is important to take both into account.
Don’t underestimate the popularity of conferencing. After users know it’s available, it will become extremely popular. Management will love the potential of reducing costs around external conferencing services, too.
