Configuring Simultaneous Ring with Mitel Communications Director (MCD) and Microsoft Lync Server 2013

The last InsideLync blog article provided a guide to establishing Direct SIP integration between Mitel Communications Director (MCD) and Microsoft Lync Server 2013.

Once direct SIP has been established, users will likely benefit from simultaneous ring (“SimRing”) integration. SimRing in this scenario means that when a Mitel phone extension is called the call will be “forked” to a associated Microsoft Lync endpoint (which typically belongs to the same user as the Mitel phone extension). This allows a user to receive a call on both their Mitel phone and Lync client in an environment with both Mitel and Lync. Speaking from experience, this is a wonderful feature for users living in a scenario where an existing IP-PBX phone and Lync enterprise voice coexist. It allows the user to receive incoming calls on whatever endpoint is best for them.

To enable SimRing between Mitel Communications Director (MCD) and Microsoft Lync Server 2013 a configuration guide was authored by InsideLync guest contributor and Lync consultant Habib Mankal and is available here:
