Cisco should do a new one for the latest CUCI-Lync and latest Lync 2013

Should also point out what MSFT license required for Lync IM/P only versus the PSTN calling.  That is important to know when customer has or is considering CALs and thinking maybe just using Jabber instead.

does it intergarte with the Polycom VTC system?
