Being new to this technoloogy, forgive me if these questions seem somewhat basic.
We are deploying Lync 2010 … it is a relatively simple implementation. (Single insatnce many components on a single server)
We are trying to understand the base configuration allowing VoIP integration. Our understanding is AsteriskNow is a SIP trunk facilitoator capable of using the Skype GW.
So just trying to understand the details, we would require an AsteriskNow server ($66), a Skype business subscription and Lync. The cominatioon of these would allow us to conduct outgoing calls and accept incoming calls thru the Skype GW at a reasonable cost per call. Our understanding is the Lync features that integrate with voice would be available using this configuration.
Any insight would be extremely helpful.
