Another month, another Lync Server 2013 book! Not just any book though—one written by two experienced Microsoft experts (Keith Hanna and Nathan Winters), with contribution from five Microsoft Certified Masters (Ari Protheroe, Gareth Bridges, Joanne Warden, Keith Hanna, and Lester Hewett).

Mastering Lync Server 2013 is the culmination of field experience from the whole spectrum of the delivery life cycle—from pre-sales, through consulting, and into operational support.

Mastering Lync Server 2013 packages over 100 hours of TAP deployment time into succinct, small chunks of easy to understand and implement content, taking the reader through new features, history, planning, and deployment. It concludes with detailed content on the more advanced functionality—including the new Lync 2013 mobile clients.

If you want the inside scoop, you’re definitely going to want to add Mastering Microsoft Lync Server 2013 to your Lync library.

    Does this book gives an answer why you are not allowed to install persistent chat and office web app on the Front End servers in a small deployment (less than 5000 users) but where HA is required (enterprise edition)?

    Or will it opens the mysteries of the response group service: no matter how many servers you deploy you can have only 1200 users in single pool, if they all are response group agents. Did someone mentioned 80 000 users per pool…?

    In a quick brief overview of the book I dont see that it comes with a companion CD of any sort.  When is someone going to put out some real practice test material for Lync 2013?
