Skype for Business video conferencing meshes with Office 365 plans
Businesses can deploy Skype for Business video conferencing either as a stand-alone tool or as part of Office 365. Third-party vendors provide endpoint and infrastructure support.
In addition to its Windows products and Azure cloud platform, Microsoft is a leading unified communications provider. Microsoft offers a cloud-based video conferencing tool through Office 365 and independently as Skype for Business, which launched in 2015, replacing Microsoft's Lync 2013 and Windows Messenger.
Skype for Business video conferencing is well-suited for SMBs and enterprises, especially those that are current Microsoft customers. Companies can use Skype for Business video conferencing as a stand-alone tool, but it's also integrated into Microsoft's Office 365 business packages.
As an enterprise application, Skype for Business video conferencing is loaded with features, including scheduling, single-touch join, content sharing, PSTN connectivity, presence, instant messaging and recording. Skype for Business also accommodates multiparty, high-definition video conferencing with 250 participants per meeting and up to six people on screen. Streaming is also available through Microsoft Azure.
