Office 365 includes Lync 2013.
With this latest version of the Microsoft Lync Server 2010 and 2013 Bandwidth Calculator, you can enter information about your users and the Lync Server features that you want to deploy, and the Bandwidth Calculator will determine bandwidth requirements for the WAN that connects sites in your deployment. The accompanying Bandwidth Calculator User Guide describes the recommended process for estimating your WAN bandwidth needs for Lync client real-time traffic.

You need to restrict Office 365 services for existing users by location.
Which Windows PowerShell cmdlet should you run?
The Set-MsolUser cmdlet is used to update a user object.
Example: The following command sets the location (country) of this user. The country must be a two-letter ISO code. This can be set for synced users as well as managed users. Set-MsolUser -UserPrincipalName email@example.com -UsageLocation “CA”
Some organizations may want to create policies that limit access to Microsoft Office 365 services, depending on where the client resides.
Active Directory Federation Services (AD FS) 2.0 provides a way for organizations to configure these types of policies. Office 365 customers using Single Sign-On (SSO) who require these policies can now use client access policy rules to restrict access based on the location of the computer or device that is making the request. Customers using Microsoft Online Services cloud User IDs cannot implement these restrictions at this time.
