Skype for Business

Reliable and flexible Unified Communications enabled by the Microsoft Cloud.


Person-to-person calling

Skype for Business provides voice-over-IP (VoIP) calling over your network and the Internet to users in your company, Skype for Business users in other companies, and Skype consumer users around the world. Users can easily add video or content sharing to any call.

Dial by name, from Office

Reach people easily, when you need them, with a single touch or click from your contact list in Skype for Business, or the contact card in any Office application.


Cloud PBX

Cloud PBX in Office 365 provides the features you need to eliminate traditional PBX systems and the associated costs.

Common calling features

Transfer, hold, and resume calls with a single touch. Let your assistant receive calls on your behalf. Answer calls for other people on your team when they’re unavailable.

Encryption by default

Protect your privacy and your intellectual property with built-in encryption, enabled by default. No VPN needed.

Voice mail

Take advantage of built-in voice mail, integrated with Exchange, to quickly respond to missed calls.


Cloud connectivity

Cloud Connectivity uses software on premises to connect existing telephone lines to Cloud PBX in Office 365. This allows customers to use Cloud PBX worldwide with calling services provided by the telco operator of their choice instead of using Microsoft PSTN calling.

Investment protection

Use existing telephone lines, phone numbers, and calling plans with Cloud PBX.

Deployment flexibility

All versions of Skype for Business Server software include cloud connectivity. Use an existing Skype for Business Server installation if available, or setup a new, small footprint deployment. Migrate some or all of your users to Cloud PBX while still taking advantage of your existing telephone lines and services.
