Lync 2013

The platform Lync 2013 provides a convenient means of communication with a stylish minimalist design in interface (Microsoft Outlook 2013, Microsoft Lync 2013).

A unified user interface, plus a single storage of contacts for Lync Server 2013 and Exchange Server 2013, and simplified administration allow to hasten user adoption and reduce IT costs. In addition, Lync 2013 (as well as Exchange 2013), offers a hybrid variant of the deployment, actual for the companies, interested in the economy. A hybrid deployment with the preservation of the former domain name provides a single environment with common functionality between the local Lync Server 2013 and Lync Online in Microsoft Office 365.

Licensing Model

The licensing of Microsoft Lync Server 2013 is still uses licensing model "server license plus CAL (CAL)».

The difference from the licensing model for Lync Server 2010 is the next:

  • For access of unlimited number of external users to Lync Server product in cases when it is impossible to accurately determine the number of required CALs, External Connector license is no longer required and thus it is excluded from the price lists.
  • Standard and Enterprise server licenses were merged and now there is only one server edition for all deployment scenarios: Lync Server 2013.
  • Server license is required for each server with the Front-End role. For other roles Lync 2013 is not required,if Front-End Server already deployed.
