Now, many headlines could sound alarming for those who are running or are planning to adopt Skype for Business or are in the middle of a migration, but – don’t forget – Microsoft stated that:

  • only the client will be replaced;
  • Teams will integrate all its features;
  • Teams will include several new features.

Microsoft will guarantee the compatibility with the existing Skype for Business deployments: on premises, hybrid, and online.

Microsoft announced also an updated version of the Skype for Business server in the next 2018 with improved voice capabilities and changes in some products names:

  • PSTN Conferencing >> Audio Conferencing
  • Cloud PBX >> Phone System
  • PSTN Calling >> Calling Plan

In this scenario, the MultiUx family already has its strategy: we will provide compatible versions of our products, sustaining the customers’ UC projects.

We think that the Teams client introduction is a huge opportunity for developing innovative, interesting, and original features.
