Creates a link between two regions configured for call admission control (CAC). This cmdlet was introduced in Lync Server 2010.

Description

Regions within a network are linked through physical WAN connectivity. This cmdlet defines a link between two regions and sets the bandwidth limitations on audio and video connections between these regions.

Examples

-------------------------- EXAMPLE 1 --------------------------

New-CsNetworkRegionLink -Identity NA_EMEA -NetworkRegionID1 NorthAmerica -NetworkRegionID2 EMEA -BWPolicyProfileID LowBWLimits

This example creates a new network region link named NA_EMEA to link the regions NorthAmerica and EMEA. The region link name is specified as the value for the Identity parameter. (This will automatically be assigned as the value of the NetworkRegionLinkID.) The two network regions being linked are required parameters for creating the link, in this case the regions named NorthAmerica and EMEA. In this example we've also assigned a value to the BWPolicyProfile parameter. This will assign the bandwidth limitations defined in that bandwidth policy profile (LowBWLimits) to connections between these regions. If no BWPolicyProfileID is supplied, there are no bandwidth limitations on connections between these two regions. (There could still be limitations between sites. For details, see the New-CsNetworkSite cmdlet help topic.)

Required Parameters

-Identity

A unique identifier for the newly created network region link. Network region links are created only at the global scope, so this identifier does not need to specify a scope. Instead, it contains a string that is a unique name that identifies that link.

Type:XdsGlobalRelativeIdentity
Position:2
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
Applies to:Lync Server 2010, Lync Server 2013, Skype for Business Server 2015
-NetworkRegionID1

The Identity (NetworkRegionID) of the region that is linked to the region identified by the NetworkRegionID2 parameter.

Type:String
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
Applies to:Lync Server 2010, Lync Server 2013, Skype for Business Server 2015
-NetworkRegionID2

The Identity (NetworkRegionID) of the region that is linked to the region identified by the NetworkRegionID1 parameter.

Type:String
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
Applies to:Lync Server 2010, Lync Server 2013, Skype for Business Server 2015
-NetworkRegionLinkID

This value is the same as the Identity. You cannot specify both an Identity and a NetworkRegionLinkID; a value entered for one will be automatically used for both.

Type:String
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
Applies to:Lync Server 2010, Lync Server 2013, Skype for Business Server 2015

Optional Parameters

-BWPolicyProfileID

The Identity of the bandwidth policy profile that will define the bandwidth limitations for this link. You can retrieve a list of available profiles by calling the Get-CsNetworkBandwidthPolicyProfile cmdlet.

Type:String
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
Applies to:Lync Server 2010, Lync Server 2013, Skype for Business Server 2015
-Confirm

Prompts you for confirmation before executing the command.

Type:SwitchParameter
Aliases:cf
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
Applies to:Lync Server 2010, Lync Server 2013, Skype for Business Server 2015
-Force

Suppresses any confirmation prompts that would otherwise be displayed before making changes.

Type:SwitchParameter
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
Applies to:Lync Server 2010, Lync Server 2013, Skype for Business Server 2015
-InMemory

Creates an object reference without actually committing the object as a permanent change. If you assign the output of this cmdlet called with this parameter to a variable, you can make changes to the properties of the object reference and then commit those changes by calling this cmdlet's matching Set-<cmdlet>.

Type:SwitchParameter
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
Applies to:Lync Server 2010, Lync Server 2013, Skype for Business Server 2015
-WhatIf

Describes what would happen if you executed the command without actually executing the command.

Type:SwitchParameter
Aliases:wi
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
Applies to:Lync Server 2010, Lync Server 2013, Skype for Business Server 2015

Inputs

None.

Outputs

This cmdlet creates an object of type Microsoft.Rtc.Management.WritableConfig.Settings.NetworkConfiguration.NetworkRegionLinkType.
