What is Microsoft Lync 2013 Mediation Role ?
In Microsoft Lync 2013 VoIP environments, the Mediation Server role supports the Enterprise Voice workload, dial-in conferencing, and advanced Enterprise Voice applications (Response Group application, Call Park application, call admission control (CAC)...). The Mediation Server is built-in with the Front End Server, so an individual Mediation Server is not necessary.
You will need a stand-alone Mediation Role server if you configure and connect your Enterprise Voice infrastructure to your SIP trunk provider and SBC infrastructure.
The trunk is the logical connection between the gateway and the Microsoft Lync 2013 Server Mediation role server.
