Information Technology Services is conducting a pilot with 35 campus telephone system users starting in April, 2016. We will be implementing Microsoft’s Voice over IP solution called Skype for Business.
Skype for Business (formerly known as Lync) is a product that provides telephony services in the form of Unified Communications applications, including voice service. We are conducting this Proof of Concept (POC) to discover if Skype for Business is a viable replacement for our telephone system. At the end of the POC we will better understand how Skype for Business works, how to integrate it with our infrastructure, and be better able to assess how well it meets Middlebury’s needs for a telephony platform. Please see Frequently Asked Questions about the Pilot for more information.
