CX-E and Skype for Business (Lync)

Enhance the Enterprise Capabilities of Skype for Business

Are you thinking of deploying Microsoft’s Skype for Business as your next corporate PBX? On its own, Skype for Business supports voice communications with a mix of UC offerings, but implementing the solution as a full or partial PBX replacement in the enterprise requires additional mission-critical applications.

Whether Skype for Business is the right choice to replace your PBX or co-exist in a branch office with your existing PBX(s), CX-E is a simple, cost-effective solution that bridges your IT infrastructure. With more than 400 telephony integrations – from traditional TDM to IP – CX-E enables Skype for Business and any other call control solutions to all work together.
