About Us: The NYC Lync User Group is targeted at IT Pros and Developers interested in Microsoft Unified Communications. Our goal is to provide the NYC area with a vast amount of valuable information as it relates to all forms of Microsoft Unified Communications. Our meetings will include both Technical and Business information relating to Lync 2010, and other components of the Microsoft UC product suite.

The NYC Lync User Group will be conducting their first meeting January 19th, 2012! With the introduction of Microsoft Lync Mobile, businesses deploying Lync Mobility Features will need to understand the new architecture requirements, and the new features available to their users. This meeting will focus on Mobility in Lync Server 2010. Microsoft Most Valuable Professional Randy Wintle (Speaker Bio here) will present Lync Mobility including the following:

·         Lync Mobility Overview

·         Lync Mobility Platform and Features

·         Lync Mobility Architecture Overview

·         Important Lync Mobility Architecture Considerations for organizations

·         Live Demo (Windows Phone 7 and IOS)

Both Microsoft and Industry Lync Experts will be onsite to deliver this presentation, and help answer any questions related to Lync Server 2010.

For our first meeting, we will be raffling off an Xbox 360 Kinect Bundle in addition to other great Lync prizes!

Food and Drink will be provided free of charge by Plantronics.
