Lync Network Readiness Assessment

Codice corso: 20335B
Durata corso: 3gg


Questo corso fornisce ai programmatori la preparazione necessaria per creare semplici strutture di disegno tecnico utilizzando AutoCAD

Obiettivi del corso

L’obiettivo da raggiungere con il presente modulo è quello di definire un disegno nelle sue parti essenziali, compresa la stampa finale. L’utente sarà in grado, quindi, di realizzare le proprie tavole grafiche utilizzando delle procedure di base.


Before attending this course, students must have an understanding of:

LAN/WAN (COMPTIA Network+ certification or equivalent experience)

Lync Server 2013 and Lync Online

Enterprise voice and VOIP

Students attending this course should have experience with network assessments.

They should also have sufficient knowledge of Lync Server 2013 and Lync Online to understand the features that impact LAN/WAN traffic. It is not necessary for students to have a MCSE: Communication, although many students will have attained this certification.

Completion of MOC courses 20336 and 20337 far exceed the level of knowledge of Lync required for this class

Struttura del Corso

MODULE 1: Overview of Network Assessments

This module will introduce you to the goals and considerations that a proactive network readiness assessment takes into account, as well as provide you with the key concepts of networking and telephony that relate to a Lync network readiness assessment.

Before starting a network readiness assessment, it is important to understand basic networking concepts, but it is even more important to identify the reasons to assess your network. The information that you gain from the assessment will inform decisions related to implementing a new product, such as Lync 2013.

A network readiness assessment is an important proactive step toward implementing and deploying new technology in your network. Conducting such an assessment using reliable tools and techniques can help identify issues that your organization might not even be aware of, ranging from possible bottlenecks, to latency problems, to assessing the current level of your network’s readiness, and serving the future needs of your organization.


After completing this module, students should have the knowledge and skills to:

Explain network readiness assessment goals and activities.

Apply key concept of networking to a network assessment.

MODULE 2: Introducing the Microsoft Lync Network Readiness Assessment Methodology

This module provides an overview on each phase in this methodology.

The objective of the network assessment is to provide insight into the readiness of the network infrastructure for supporting an excellent user experience, while using Lync Server for Real-time Communications (RTC). The network assessment helps to answer the critical pre-deployment question, "Is my network infrastructure ready to support Lync Server?”


After completing this module, students will be able to:

Explain the four major phases of the Microsoft Lync Readiness Assessment methodology.

Discovery Phase

Modeling Phase

Traffic Simulation Phase

Recommendations Phase

Identify the objectives and goals of each phase of the network assessment.

Lab : Discussion

MODULE 3: Network Discovery

This module examines several of the key goals of the Discovery phase, such as revealing potential sources of network impairments, raising awareness of Lync Server traffic flows, confirming the simulation probe placement choice for the traffic simulation, and offering guidelines for network devices.


After completing this module, students will be able to:

Discover current Network Infrastructure and utilization.

Identify client and Lync devices.

Locate Network Impairments and Roadblocks

Document Current Client Devices

Overview of Transport Reliability IP Probe Tools

Lab : Using Network Assessment Discovery Tools

MODULE 4: Analyzing Server, Network, and Client Health

The deployment and monitoring portion of the Lync Server lifecycle is where you keep the Lync Server infrastructure running in optimal condition. If planning was properly handled, you will not be expected to fix a backlog of infrastructure issues. Instead, you will be watching for new signs of service degradation and usage trends.

During the Discovery phase of your network assessment, you will use monitoring and managing methods to determine server, network, and client health. This information will help you pose your recommendations to the customer, as well as supply valuable information for the next phases of your network assessment.


After completing this module, students will be able to:

Determine server, network, and Client Health Indicators.

Use monitoring and managing methods to analyze network data.

Lab : Analyzing Monitoring Data

MODULE 5: Usage and Traffic Modeling

This module introduces the different usage scenarios, usage models, and personas needed for usage modeling. 

It covers the process of calculating expected data usage for traffic modeling. Modeling tools, such as the Lync Bandwidth Calculator and Microsoft Lync Server 2013 Planning Tool, will also be covered.


After completing this module, students will be able to:

Perform Usage Modeling and Traffic Modeling

Use the Microsoft Lync Server 2013 Planning Tool

Use the Lync Bandwidth Calculator

Lab : Using Modeling Tools

MODULE 6: Performing Traffic Simulations

This module covers how to perform traffic simulations to understand traffic patterns on a network. By sending representative real-time communication (RTC) traffic through a network, a full readiness picture can be determined.


After completing this module, students will be able to:

Perform a Traffic Simulations as part of a network readiness assessment

Use traffic simulation best practices

Use the Lync Server Stress and Performance Tool to perform stress and performance tests

Lab : Using Network Readiness Tools to Validate the Network

MODULE 7: Understanding Network Controls and Solutions

This module covers the various solutions that might be recommended to meet business and technical requirements to achieve network readiness.


After completing this module, students will be able to:

Describe Quality of Service.

Implement Bandwidth Management with Call Admission Control

Use troubleshooting and Diagnostics Tools

Lab : Understanding and Verifying Quality of Service (QoS)

Lab : Using Call Admission Control to Manage Bandwidth Usage

Lab : Troubleshooting

MODULE 8: Making Recommendations for Network Readiness

After completing the previous phases of a network readiness assessment, it is now time for recommending areas to be investigated. This could include implementing different software based strategies, such as Quality of Service (QoS) or call admission control (CAC). It could also include networking and topology changes or hardware and device changes. Sometimes it may just be troubleshooting and fixing problems with the current network or configuration. 

This module examines how to analyze the data that you compile, how to make recommendations based on that data, and how to create reports based on those recommendations.


After completing this module, students will be able to:

Form recommendations based on network assessment analysis

Document and summarize their recommendations for network preparedness

Lab : Making Network Readiness Assessment Recommendations
