Patton Releases PSTN Gateway OCS/Lync Configuration Guide

A little while ago a Patton spokesperson indicated to me that they were working on Microsoft OCS/Lync interoperability. I just noticed Patton posted a configuration guide for Lync as a PDF. And while this page says "Patton Certified IP-PBX Vendors" boldly across the top of the page, I don't think this translates into "Lync Certified". ;-) (Lync certified gateways)

While Patton seems to be a favorite PSTN gateway for some Windows-based PBX VARs, other vendors such as Audiocodes , Dialogic and  (perhaps?) Sangoma seem to have taken a more prominent place in the Microsoft Lync field soo far. But perhaps Patton is planning to change some things?

We'll see.

Patton Gateway Configuration Guide for Lync & OCS:

  2. Sure thing, Matt. There is also press release in the works about the mutual certification. . .
