Many organizations have leveraged low cost Microsoft Lync (Microsoft Lync has been rebranded Skype for Business) licensing models to deploy Lync/Skype for Business clients for instant messaging and presence. GENBAND offers cost effective Lync integration solutions to extend value by enabling users to make and receive external phone calls (to and from the public telephone network) from the Lync client without impacting the functionality of their existing voice solution. Users can maintain the value and reliability of a legacy TDM-based desk phone or the latest IP phone and still get access to Lync’s rich collaboration services.
