With its partnership with one of the world’s largest carriers, Microsoft can take Skype for Business even further.
AT&T will be joining forces with Microsoft to deliver Skype for Business to its global user base, AT&T announced earlier this month in a blog post from Abhi Ingle, big data and advanced solutions senior vice president. Available in different delivery modes to AT&T subscribers, Skype for Business will be a mainstream offering in more than 140 AT&T-supported countries.
With this new partnership, AT&T customers will now be able to conduct virtual meetings, connect and collaborate with remote employees and partners, and utilize enhanced VoIP calling (along with dial-in and dial-out as standard telephony), instant messaging, screen sharing and email integration services. This service can also allow up to 1,000 participants on a single Skype for Business call.
