When a client is using Lync/Skype soft phones and Lync/Skype PBX for voice - what kind of QoS needs to be configured on the corporate network to assure prompt delivery of those real time packets? With Cisco phones the port can identify and classify the voice traffic straight away and it goes on a separate voice vlan. How do you approximate this when Lync is in play?

Cisco will automatically do that for Cisco equipment. Any other devices, you have to configure in a more manual sense.

Makes sense. Do you have advice as to characteristics of Lync/Skype voice or video calls which would permit those datagrams and packets to be classified for expedited queue?

Don't know what version you're using, but here's an article that should help somewhat:
