Skype for Business Cloud PBX - your four deployment models explained

August 08, 2017

With all the noise around cloud, it is easy to draw the conclusion that moving your voice or telephony to Skype for Business means putting everything in the cloud. Certainly that is what Microsoft would have you believe and given the growing capabilities of Skype for Business in Office 365, there is a good argument to say that this is where the future lies. However, in the ‘here and now’ the answer is not so black and white.

There are four distinct deployment models you can consider depending on your organisation’s individual circumstance, each allowing you to experience the benefits of improving and streamlining your communications by utilising Skype for Business.

In our complete video guide, Tom Arbuthnot - Principal Solutions Architect and a Microsoft MVP at Modality Systems puts forward four deployment models:

  • 100% On Premises Server with your own carrier
  • 100% Skype for Business Online with Cloud PBX & Microsoft as your carrier
  • 100% Skype for Business Online with Cloud Connector Edition (using your own carrier)
  • Skype for Business Online with Skype for Business Server as the gateway to your own   carrier
