There are fewer than 80 companies who are certified SIP trunk carriers by Skype for Business. It was quite the undertaking, but the stringent specifications didn’t stop us from the task, and we are now proud to be certified Skype for Business interoperability partners!
Skype for Business Interoperability Requirements
One key to integration is achieved through backward compatibility of Skype for Business with previous versions and with the Infrastructure Interoperability Program. The program requires qualified partners whose infrastructure devices have been thoroughly tested. The devices include SIP-PSTN gateways, reverse proxy servers, load balancers, IP-Private Branch Exchange (IP-PBX), survivable branch appliances, and session boarder controllers. Additionally, Skype for Business provides compatible services which include SIP, enhanced 911 (E-911), and audio conferencing providers (ACP).
Beyond the technical requirements, additional specifications are required by Microsoft in order to pass: - Join the Microsoft Partner Program - Become a member of TSANet, a multivendor support community - Contact and complete test lab requirements from TekVizion or WIPRO - Contact Skype for Business engineering team for final approval - Create dedicated support page for Skype for Business documentation including a start guide
