In August TekVizion Labs completed the certification testing for MX-ONE with Lync.
A comprehensive set of tests were executed in this independent laboratory in order to validate the interoperability between the systems. The test results concluded that the MX-ONE 4.1 sp 3 direct SIP implementation successfully passed the certification requirements according to Microsoft specifications.
The MX-ONE direct SIP integration with Lync supports the following scenarios:
- Basic Call services between MX-ONE and Lync end-points over SIP trunks
- Media Bypass (a.k.a. Direct media between MX-ONE and Lync clients)
- Failover (to secondary Lync gateways)
- Security (support for TLS/SRTP encryption)
Remote Call Control certification has not been completed as this requires some further development in MX-ONE. Even though not certifiable in the Lync certification program this feature might become available and supported by Aastra in a coming MX-ONE release.
