What’s All the Hype around Skype (for Business)?

sponsorWhat’s All the Hype around Skype (for Business)?

Maybe we should just start at what is Skype? Skype (now called Skype for Business or SfB) is Microsoft’s new, improved and integrated Lync but with many more capabilities. SfB is a Unified Communications platform that can be deployed in a wide variety of configurations and integrates with your MS Office applications - from a simple Instant Messaging / Calendaring tool for your employees up to a robust Cloud / On-Premise / Hybrid Enterprise Voice and Teleconferencing system. An interesting fact is that most basic Microsoft core CALs, whether O365 or On-Premise, entitles you to SfB functionality. If you are unsure about your SfB licensing, we will be able to help you understand the many nuances of Microsoft’s pricing and licensing policies at this event.

For experienced users of Skype for Business, come see the latest Microsoft Project Rigel integration of Microsoft’s Surface technologies with Logitech’s Skype Room Systems in a conference room environment. Advanced SfB users that are looking at aging phone systems with high maintenance costs can add the power of Skype for Business to new telephony deployments. Using AudioCodes’ proven internet-based telephony systems that combines SBC technology with SIP Trunking, you can dramatically reduce your PSTN costs and choose the Cloud/On-Premise/Hybrid deployment model that fits your business.

Please join The Root Group and our partners, AudioCodes and Logitech, as we help you unravel the power behind Skype for Business and explore the different deployment options that can impact your bottom line.
