Polycom DMA and Lync Integration
August 30, 2011 by Jeff Schertz

The past video conferencing integration articles have primarily discussed the Real-time Media eXperience (RMX) platform, but the Distributed Media Application (DMA) also supports direct integration with OCS and Lync and is the preferred SIP path when both devices exist in an environment.

Out-of-the-box DMA integration instructions are included in the Polycom UC Deployment Guide for Microsoft Environments document, but the steps shown don’t address the scenario where an RMX is already integrated in the network and DMA is being introduced. The documented approach would be to simply define DMA as another Application Pool and define a new route for video calls.

But there is a simpler way to approach adding DMA into an environment where there is already a functional RMX integrated into Lync. The premise is that SIP signaling will primarily be directed to the DMA instead of the RMX for the chosen routing domain, yet signaling and certificate-based TLS signaling will still be supported for the RMX. As the RMX should typically remain a Trusted Application to support certain integration features or outbound SIP calling into Lync then it would not be a good approach to simply replace the RMX configuration with the DMA information.

Calling ScenariosBefore addressing the configuration steps it is important to take a step back and understand the various call routing scenarios that are available with RMX and DMA integration with Lync Server.

* Lync Video Call to RMX
* Lync Video Call to DMA
* Lync Video Call to a Registered Virtual Meeting Room
* Lync Inbound Video Call from an RMX

New #Polycom #Videoconference System Comes With #Lync @Graham_Walsh

August 25, 2011 Comments off

Videoconference system vendor Polycom has introduced a new room video telepresence system that comes with the Microsoft Lync unified communications platform built right in. Because the Polycom CX7000 Unified Collaboration System features tight integration with Lync, participants in video meetings will experience the same user interface (UI) they are familiar with when using Lync on their desktop computers, as well as the familiar Polycom UI…

With Polycom RMX, you can connect Lync Server to existing Polycom video conferencing investments.

Here is an example of Polycom RMX conference room integration with Lync:

I joined a Polycom RMX MCU from Lync even via federation and had my other UC amigos Bill and Greg join as well from their Lync clients. The red highlight shows who is speaking actively. Pretty slick. This demonstrated nice interoperability between Polycom and Lync video endpoints. The scenario here is you could have federated Lync off campus users/students join your existing campus Polycom conference rooms over the Internet.


This example below shows how Lync users can connect to existing Polycom VTC device called Polycom HDX. The device is registered in Lync and Active Directory. You can also see device presence, even connect to federated Polycom VTCs and conference rooms in other organizations.

The sample above I have joined a Polycom VTC in Polycom’s organization via Lync federation. This is a pretty powerful way to extend your Polycom investment to Lync video conferencing and even extend your Polycom to federated customers
