Hi all,

First post so Hello to everyone! I've been lurking for some time mostly getting info on WDS but I now need to investigate how to get Enterprise Voice working in Lync 2013.

Currently we have Lync 2013 standard (single FE and single edge) and are using it for IM, Presence, Conferencing. It's also integrated with our Exchange 2010.

The phone system, I'm told, is a 'Meridian 61' with a couple of 'Meridian 11''s connected to that.

For starters we are simply looking at using the Lync mobile client to be able to make internal & External calls to standard analogue lines. For this I understand we needs a 'Gateway' device? Can anyone tell me what I should be looking at? I've seen mention of Asterisk. Would this provide gateway functionality?

I've never had anything to do with regular phone systems so any information at all would be extremely helpful!
