Software on student PCs

The student PCs in computer rooms on the campus, including teaching PCs in lecture theatres and seminar rooms, have the following software.

Skype for Business

Communication Software

Features Include:

  • instant messaging
  • Voice Over IP (VoIP)
  • video conferencing inside the client software

Advanced features relate to integration with other Microsoft software:

  • users can retrieve contact lists from a local directory service such as Microsoft Exchange Server
  • Microsoft Office can show if other people are working on the same document[15]
  • all communication between the clients takes place through a Microsoft Lync Server. This makes communications more secure, as messages do not need to leave the corporate intranet, unlike with the Internet-based Windows Live Messenger. The server can be set to relay messages to other instant messaging networks, avoiding installation of extra software at the client side.
  • a number of client types are available for Microsoft Lync, including mobile clients.
  • uses SIP as the basis for its client communication protocol[16]
  • offers support for TLS and SRTP to encrypt and secure signaling and media traffic
  • allows sharing files.
