I am a complete beginner concercing Microsoft Lync and PBX systems, so please bear with me.

I have set up a Lync standard server which is running fine. We can chat/audio & video conference on our internal network. Now, what I need is to connect the Lync server to our telephony system, but here is where I get totally lost.

We have an Avaya Integral 5 D pbx box and a netConnect AMP 6 panel.

Are these piece of hardware compatible with what I am trying to achieve? If so, what are the steps to follow from here?

Thank you.

You should check out the PBX interoperability documentation for Lync available on Technet

If it's not supported by Lync natively then you need something that can bridge the gap between Lync and your existing PBX. I'm in the process of investigating Asterisk as the intermediate.

Hopefully that's enough to get you started. Lync VOIP stuff is FUN!
