  • integrating voice to Lync 2010 Standard

    i want to set up if possible free voip solution for my home network which is using exchange 2010, lync 2010 and windows 2008 r2. Everything is working great but i want to add my own phone system. I heard of asterisks but was wondering how i would go about that setup and having the ability for outside people to call my lync voip number and allowing internal users to make outside calls if possible. I have my whole environment virtualized using vmware esxi 5.

    Thanks

    FreePBX or AsteriskNOW lends itself very well to this. Its based on the Asterisk distribution. You could use a an ITSP such as Sipgate who can provide you with a free DDI although you require credit in order to make outbound calls. Asterisk in essence will function as your border element/controller and the trunk from Sipgate can terminate on Asterisk with Lync using Asterisk as a gateway to make calls to and from the PSTN.

    There's a good guide here that covers the Asterisk Lync integration although i'm not sure if it covers connectivity to the PSTN using a SIP trunk provider/ITSP.

      thanks for the quick reply but it seems sipgate will cease in a few days. Any other recommendations?

        Any ITSP will do. It really depends on how much you're willing to pay. Additionally you can terminate a SIP trunk directly on your Mediation server from a SIP trunk provider qualified for Lync.

        I'm based in the UK and wasn't aware the US arm of Sipgate was closing its doors. Sipgate is quite popular because of its free DDI's and its cheap. Most carriers providing SIP trunking will work with Asterisk. You just need to find a US carrier that's compatible with Asterisk.
