I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Federation is Microsoft's term for external connectivity with Lync.  It enables users with Lync to connect with users within their organization and with user in other organizations that also use Lync Online.  When a federation is set up by the administrators on both sides then users in each company can communicate with each other.

Here is a Microsoft article on setting this up in Lync Server 2013:  http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/jj204800.aspx
