Happy Days – HYBRID Voice is back and Welcome a totally new SfB component the CCE
In this post i will try and give you an overview of the both the new supported Hybrid Voice scenario and specifically the new CCE component (which is still awaiting date for GA)
With the new E5 licensing SKU Microsoft has brought back Hybrids to the SFB/ Lync customer.
The headline for this is CloudPBX
Basically right now you could divide the world into US and all others when discussing options for deploying Cloud PBX.
There are 3 different scenarios supported.
This is ONLY available in the US
This is available worldwide.
With Onprem PSTN via existing SfB/LYNC deployment
CCE – Cloud Connector Edition
The info on Technet says a maximum of 500 concurrent calls per CCE. And one PSTN site can contain a maximum of 4 CCE’s.
And thereby also answering the HA question, simply deploy 2 CCE’s to create HA.
However there are some limitations to consider, there is no automatic site tolerance – so if one data-center (one PSTN site) goes down, users online will not automatically fail-over to the secondary PSTN site.
Please always turn to technet for up-to-the-minute info on sizing and planning
