Skype for Business Rollout

Project Overview

Your existing Microsoft Lync communication tool is being upgraded to the new "Skype for Business".

Skype for Business, formerly known as Microsoft Lync, is a platform that integrates common channels of business communication including instant messaging (IM), VoIP (voice over IP), file transfer, Web conferencing, voice mail and email across the whole of the University of Tasmania.

Skype for Business can be used for internal communications within UTas, and even to talk to external Skype for Business Users, locally and across the world!

As part of the rollout of Skype for Business we will update your existing Microsoft Lync client and enable it for Enterprise Voice. At this point the Skype for Business client will replace your traditional phone handset and you will be able to make and receive external calls.
