Microsoft Skype For Business Telephone Matrix
When it comes to Skype for Business, there are three different ways in which it is deployed within a company;
- On Premise Skype for Business - Customer owns private Microsoft Infrastructure from which SFB runs on.
- Hosted Skype for Business - Customer ‘rents’ space on someone else’s Microsoft Infrastructure from where SFB runs from. Customer would pay via a subscription model to the ‘provider’.
- Online/Office 365 (O365) Skype for Business - Customer purchases Skype for Business as part of their subscription to Microsoft Office 365.
The first 2 options are essentially the same and all Skype for Business phones will work in these scenarios. The problem comes with the Online Skype for Business. Again, most phones will work, but there are a few exceptions which are shown in the table below. This table will be updated regularly as and when new SFB phones and conference phones come to the market. Please don't hesitate to contact us if your SFB phone does not appear.
