About Me

TsooRad is a blog for John Weber. John is a Skype for Business MVP (2015-2018) - before that, a Lync Server MVP (2010-2014). My day job is titled "Technical Lead, MS UC" - I work with an awesome group of people at CDW, LLC. I’ve been at this gig in one fashion or another since 1988 - starting with desktops (remember Z-248’s?) and now I am in Portland, Oregon. I focus on collaboration and infrastructure. This means Exchange of all flavors, Skype, LCS/OCS/Lync, Windows, business process, and learning new stuff. I have a variety of interests - some of which may rear their ugly head in this forum. I have a variety of certifications dating back to Novell CNE and working up through the Microsoft MCP stack to MCITP multiple times. FWIW, I am on my third career - ex-USMC, retired US Army. I have a fancy MBA. One of these days, I intend to start teaching. The opinions expressed on this blog are mine and mine alone.

Click to Dial explained

VoipNorm just posted a very nice article on “ Lync 2010 Mobile and Desktop Click-to-Join for Non-Enterprise Voice Users .“  In reading through it, I noticed that he makes the statement that “I have heard people say repeatedly that you need to enable EV for Click-to-Join, but this is not true for either the desktop or mobile clients.”

This statement is accurate in that the user does not need to be EV-enabled, but based on several experiences, I will say that there needs to be some connection to the PSTN for Click-to-Join to work with any client.  I am pointing this out because I have had to explain to a potential client that there needed to be some connection {via gateway, SIP trunk (or some other magic)}, before dial-in conferencing (or outcalling) would work.

Just a clarification from my pea-brain, otherwise, another excellent piece of work from VoipNorm!

YMMV.
