Lync 2013 Upgrade


We are upgrading Lync Server 2010 to Lync Server 2013.  The change is simple from the administrative side and non-impactful to customers (end users). Following the upgrade, customers will be encouraged to upgrade their Lync client to take advantage of new functionality that cannot be experienced on older clients (though those clients will continue to work).
