  1. Hi Jeff,

    This is really off topic but I wanted to let you know I am a big fan of your blog. It has solved many problems for my team as we have replaced our legacy PBXs with Lync.

    Can I ask you to comment/provide advice on an issue we have run into with our Intercall conferencing calls dropping after 90 minutes when terminating at a Lync endpoint. The only solution I have been able to find is to set the RTCPActiveCalls parameter for the Set-CsTrunkConfiguration command to $false which Microsoft recommends against, so I am not sure if this is a good idea. We're using Intelepeer as a SIP trunk provider if that makes a difference.

    1. It sounds like you may be on the right track but I have not run into this myself. I would assuming that contacting Intelepeer would be the first course of action. I also suggest trying the TechNet Lync forums.
