Federation isn’t just for Captain Kirk. Make a Real Impact
Showcase the power of Lync: Tip #8
Federation is the cool way Lync lets you connect with customers, partners, and vendors outside the company just like you do on the inside. Chat, meet, and share with outside parties using Lync—plus, stay in touch over public IM networks.
To do it: Type the name or email address of your contact in the search box. Hover over the search result, and then click the Add to Contacts button.
Administrators can enable federation with any other organization running Microsoft Lync 2010 or previous versions, including Office Communications Server and Live Communications Server.
