Extreme Networks integration with Microsoft Skype for Business (formerly ‘Lync’) simplifies deployments by resolving QoS challenges and providing deep insights into application and network performance.

Micrsosoft Skype for Business provides call setup information to Extreme Networks NetSight Advanced Management Application, which applies QoS policies from switches endpoints and provides in-depth visibility into call quality. Administrators monitor and troubleshoot applications, networks, and devices with Extreme Networks OneView Reporting and Purview Applications Analytics, enabling IT managers to quickly locate, diagnose, and correct issues that may impact Skype for Business user experiences.

The solution is enabled via Extreme Networks OneController SDN platform in OpenFlow-enabled heterogeneous environments, or via our OneConnect xAPI in traditional standards-based networks.
