Lync Mobile Round-Up
Now that all the Lync 2010 Mobile clients have been released in the respective “App Stores”/”Marketplaces” etc I find myself answering questions around how you get the client, when it will work in your environment and what is required. This by no means is a representation of the work that I have done around Lync Mobile but more of a group of resources I use to understand what is new, get a Lync environment configured for mobility and get those beloved mobile clients!!!
This blog will be updated regularly when I see cool new tutorials or quick tips come out!
MCX = Mobility Service
Autodiscover = Not to be confused with Exchange Autodiscover, the lyncdiscover.sipdomain.com and lyncdiscoverinternal.sipdomain.com tell the Lync Mobile client where to reach the mobility service.
APNS = Apple Push Notification Service = The Apple Push Notification Service is utilized on iOS devices to receive push notification incoming Instant Messages.
MPNS = Microsoft Push Notification Service = Same as Apple Push Notification Service but is utilized for Windows Phone 7.5 devices
Microsoft Lync Server Push Notification Service = The Cloud based solution that is leveraged by the MCX service to send push notifications to iOS and WP devices.
