Lync for Mac 2011 works with Microsoft Lync Server 2010 to provide real-time collaboration between people in different locations. People can collaborate in real time by using several methods of communication, including instant messaging (IM), presence, Web conferencing, desktop sharing, and audio/video (A/V) conferencing. Contacts that a user adds to his or her Lync account can include coworkers in the same company and, if authorized, associates on federated networks.
The Lync for Mac 2011 Deployment Guide is for system implementers, IT managers, system administrators, or other people who plan for, implement, and maintain Lync in their organizations.
