Federation is a trust relationship between two or more Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) domains that permits users in separate organizations to communicate in real-time across network boundaries as federated partners. Internal users can communicate with external users of a federated partner by using instant messaging (IM) or conferencing.
A federated partner can also be an audio conferencing provider (ACP) that provides telephony integration. Using Office Communications Server, you can enable access by federated partners, including other organizations and ACPs who provide telephony integration for your organization.
Note: Federated partner access is not required for SIP trunking service providers.
