In this article, Avaya Communications Manager is running on an Avaya S8300 Media Server with an Avaya G350 Media Gateway. The Avaya G350 Media Gateway provides the physical interfaces and resources for Communications Manager. This just happens to be the hardware in our lab, but if you have other versions that you are interested in configuring for Direct SIP with Lync Server 2010, please contact me. We would like to partner with you to author an article on the NextHop blog.
According to the Avaya support site at http://www.avaya.com/usa/product/servers, the Avaya S8300 Media Server (shown in Figure 1) resides inside an Avaya G700, G450, G350, or G250 Media Gateway. You can use it as a stand-alone communication system or as a fully survivable remote gateway. The Avaya S8300 Media Server can be the primary controller for up to 50 remote Avaya G250, G350, G450, and G700 Media Gateways.
