Microsoft Lync with Aruba WiFi
Unified communications demands that the Wi-Fi be application aware in order to adapt and meet the needs of critical business applications, this is how you deliver a quality user experience in a converged network. Traditionally, QoS segregates real-time voice and video devices as well as non-real-time data devices into separate VLANs. However, the problem is a Microsoft Lync Server runs real-time and non-real-time applications on the same device.
The Aruba solution solves this problem by leveraging its integrated ICSA certified firewall to offer an alternative and unique approach. Not only allowing QoS to be applied to devices that simultaneously support Lync voice, video and IM but giving you the flexibility to decide how to prioritise voice, video, file sharing, desktop sharing independently according to your organisation’s needs.
Certified on Lync 2010 and 2013 Aruba is the only vendor to have partnered with Microsoft on an engineering level. When Microsoft came to roll out Lync voice and video services over Wi-Fi at their own headquarters in Redmond, Aruba was chosen.
