How to configure Cloud Connector Edition with Cloud PBX - Office 365 (Sonus Cloud Link)

It is published in Technet:
#The How-To Guide for Cloud PBX in Office 365 Skype for Business Online with Sonus Cloud Link

This how-to guide is written in technical level 200 for Pre-Sales Consultant and the second half reaches leave 400 for Office 365, Sonus Cloud Link CCE Appliance and the Session Boarder Controller.
We start from the Pre-Sales consulting process and the associated arguments. The Pre-Sales and Consultants will learn how the Cloud Connector Edition is working, technical deep drive inside CCE and last but not least the configuration of Office 365 Skype for Business Online and the wizard based CCE installation. Followed by a common scenario with Cloud PBX and multiple sites across different regions.
Second topic is a direct SIP connection to 3rd party on-premises applications (e.g. Contact Center, local PBX or others). Here we focus on the locally hosted Contact Center.
The question might be asked, “How can we use different CCE sites with different PSTN breakouts assigned?” The answer is, by utilizing a simple two-site deployment that allows replicating the configuration to larger designs with N-Sites.
For the examples that follow, there will be two locations. The first in Munich, Germany, and the other in London, UK. Both sites have their own dedicated PSTN breakout. It will not matter if the connection to the PSTN gateway is via an ISDN/PRI, or an SIP Trunk line. However, there can be a PBX behind the local site gateway.
If Media Bypass is not available, the user can connect to the customer’s LAN, and the connection to the Mediation Server can be direct if firewall rules allow this path. In this scenario, the users connect over the Internet.
PSTN-based calls can generally flow in two directions, from PSTN -> Cloud PBX user, or from the Cloud PBX user -> PSTN. The simplest call flow is the incoming call from PSTN -> Cloud PBX.
Every CCE has a direct connection/path to the Microsoft Office 365 Skype for Business online platform. Therefore, every incoming call will be signalized to the Cloud PBX directly. There are no other logical or technical considerations.
