    Introduction

    You need an edge server, if you want to let external users (Not logged into your organizations internal

    network) to be able to interact with internal users. These external users could be

     Authenticated remote users

     Anonymous remote users

     Federated users (from different organizations)

     Mobile clients

    Edge Server Roles

    There are four types of roles in Skype For Business Edge Server.

    Co-Location of Edge Roles All four edge services are collocated on the edge server. You can have a different media edge server but

    you can’t install an edge server with just AV edge service.

    You can also chose to disable either of the edge services on edge pool\server.

    Sample Topology

    Handles SIP TrafficAccess Edge •Authenticates external connections

    •Allows remote connection

    •Allows federation Connection

    Handles Data Conferencing PacketsWeb Conferencing •Allows external users to join SFB meetings

    •Allows external users to use whiteboard

    •Allows external users to use Poll

    •Allows external users to use QnA

    Handles A/V Conferencing PacketsA/V Conferencing •Extends audio to external users

    •Extends video to external users

    •Extends app sharing to external users

    •Allows file transfer to external users

    Handles XMPP packetsXMPP Proxy •Allows XMPP based server\client to connect

    •Earlier, it was a different role (no colocation)

    •Usually used to federate with google users

    Internal DNS Requirements

    Edge servers are not domain joined machines. You need to create a DNS entry for each of the Edge

    servers using internally used domain names.

    Lets assume, Skype for Business pool FQDN is sfbpool.contoso.com, and Edge server hostname is Edge01.

    DNS entry should be created as below (internal DNS server).

    Edge01.contoso.com 192.168.1.30 (IP address of internal interface)

    This is just a reference topology. Your edge design should be based on various design factors;

    external features, location, security concern, high availability etc.

    You need to configure two interfaces of the edge server; internal and external. Internal interface

    would interact with the internal servers (front end\Director etc). External interface needs ip

    address and port configuration for each of the edge services (access, web, av).

    A single default gateway should be defined only on the external interface. This would force all traffic to go to internet, except the internal ones. For which you need to define static route.

    External DNS Requirements

    You need to create external DNS records for the external IP addresses you have configured on the edge

    servers. DNS entries would look like as below. These records need to be created on public DNS servers.

    Access Edge Service

    Type FQDN IP Address

    A sip.contoso.com 202.202.1.10 (External IP address configured for Access Edge Service)

    Web Conferencing Edge Service

    Type FQDN IP Address

    A Wconf.contoso.com 202.202.1.11 (External IP address configured for Web Conf Edge Service)

    Audio Video Edge Service

    Type FQDN IP Address

    A av.contoso.com 202.202.1.12 (External IP address configured for Web Conf Edge Service)

    SRV Records

    Name Host Port Reason

    _sip.tls.contoso.com sip.contoso.com 443 Auto login for external client

    _sipfederationtls._tcp.contoso.com sip.contoso.com 5061 Federation discovery

    _xmpp-server._tcp.contoso.com sip.contoso.com 5269 XMPP gateway locator
