With the introduction of collaboration to your communications stack, there are many additional considerations IT needs to keep in mind. With increased collaboration and visibility, it’s important to reduce risk of security exposures from employees and guests.
With SfB-Online going End of Life (EOL) in July of 2021 and Skype for Business Server 2015 and 2019 having their mainstream support EOL’ing in 2020 and 2023 respectively, it’s quite possible that Microsoft is signaling to organizations that it’s time to migrate to Teams. The intricacies of such a migration go far beyond the 5 different migration methods that Microsoft has outlined and are also arguably even more complicated than an initial migration form an old school PBX to Skype for Business.
Our experienced consultants will create a migration plan and lead you through all the implementation steps, encompassing areas such as voice integration, Direct Routing, DID porting, video room integration, conferencing migration, SfB/Teams interoperability, security, network readiness, workstream collaboration, and monitoring/reporting and management details.

In order to better optimize an existing deployment or to help de-risk the rollout and coexistence of a hybrid deployment of Microsoft Teams and Skype for Business, Unify Square offers a UC HealthCheck service. This service focuses on customers’ existing system, and helps with adherence to industry and Unify Square best practices.
The Health Check has been designed to highlight any inefficiencies or issues in a deployment, as well as flagging any potential blocks to long-term goals that may occur during upgrades or migrations.

Networks must be regularly optimized for collaboration and communications systems, and an assessment can help you prepare to align with your cloud service provider’s recommendations. Traditional corporate WANs route traffic back to headquarter data centers, which can create long delays, decreasing video and voice quality for systems like Microsoft Teams and Skype for Business.

Our consultants provide network recommendations, customizable survey locations, and reporting and analytics to help ensure your team is ready for business success with your system deployment.
