Work from Anywhere


Skype for Business allows people to communicate securely and stay connected with colleagues and customers, from wherever they chose to work. Lync’s anywhere access capabilities not only enable telecommuting and remote work for employees, but also increase real estate flexibility and provide business continuity options for organizations.

Identity Based Communication

Skype uses identity to connect people, not traditional fixed-location phone numbers. Users authenticate with their Active Directory credentials, and, once authenticated, may be reached by name from Lync or from detailed contact cards now integrated into all Office applications. Lync voice users are also reachable via telephone: their Lync number rings wherever they are, whether in the office, at home, or on the go.

Seamless Connectivity

Skype automatically establishes connections using your network or the Internet without requiring a VPN, yet keeps your communications safe using built-in encryption. Skype’s adaptive media stack ensures a high quality voice and video experience even on unmanaged networks like the Internet, while policy controls, QoS support, and call admission control allow administrators to closely manage corporate traffic.

Presence and HD Video

Skype for Business presence and HD video make remote work nearly as personal as being there. Presence based on Exchange calendar information, current PC or other device activity, and manual input indicates the current availability of users, and makes it easy to identify the right time to contact colleagues. Affordable HD video improves personal connections, and makes it possible to observe non-verbal cues and other intangible benefits of face-to-face discussions.

Call Quality
Users need assurance that other users can clearly hear, understand and/or see them while having a conversation. Skype for Business allows users to test whether current network conditions are sufficient for high quality voice and video before they initiate a call, and provides a real-time quality indicator during calls.
