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.
