  1. This is a great post putting a lot of great links on one place. I only wish I’d done it. Thanks.
    I do have a suggestion for a link to add. by Ken Lasko.
    This program will create an optimized set of dialling rules for North American and other selected countries that will work with Microsoft Lync Server 2010/2013 and several popular telephony gateways.

    In English – this creates a PowerShell script that creates dial plans, number normalization, voice routes, voice policies, PSTN usages, trunks and call park orbits. Just enter the parameters including number and extension ranges and it does the rest. It saves hours or even days on enterprise voice configurations.
