Federation between MOCS 2007 R1/R2 and IBM Sametime 8.0.2 is now available!

What for?
Federation allow two companies to share users’s Presence and to communicate with Instant Messaging. Each company must use a dedicated SIP domain name.

How does it works?

  • On the OCS side, you will need to deploy a MOCS 2007 Edge server (R1 or R2 version) enabled for the federation:
    • Configure your environment for the federation:
      • Configure firewall rules on port TCP5061 bidirectionnal
      • Create a public DNS A record (ex: sip.contoso.com). Create also a public DNS SRV record (ex: _sipfederationtls._tcp.contoso.com) pointing on to sip.contoso.com on port 5061
      • Request a commercial certificate (ex: subject name: sip.contoso.com)
    • Deploy your edge server, ans especially the Access Edge server role
    • Note: You do not need a reverse proxy server for the federation
  • On the Sametime side, you will need to deploy an IBM Sametime Gateway 8.0.2 and the HF2 hotfix: Sametime Gateway 8.0.2 Hot-Fix One (HF1) is now available

In case of issues, you will need to open a case on both Microsoft and IBM supports.
