Finally got around to installing Lync 2010 in the Production environment at work. At first, seems a bit overwhelming when trying to deploy, but as I dig more into it and understand the topology builder and its role, it seems to be a bit easier! I’m now sitting waiting on the certificate to be generated so I can start services, but in the meantime it’s got me doing some digging! I’m playing around now with a few different devices from some vendors including a Polycom CX5000, CX3000, various GN headsets, and a handful of different Lync optimized webcams.

Some exciting stuff coming down the line! I’ll update you once I have my certificates installed and working.
