Solu-Skype: Skype for Business with Cloud PBX & PSTN Conferencing in Office 365

After many years deploying Lync 2010, Lync 2013 and now Skype for Business 2015, Solulan has developed a strong background deploying Skype for Business Enterprise Voice. Now that those services are going in the Cloud (Office 365), Solulan uses the Skype Operations Framework to successfully plan, deliver and operate Skype for Business deployments in your Office 365 tenant by leveraging workloads like Cloud PBX and PSTN Conferencing and by incorporating practical and pragmatic guidance, tools, assets and recommended practices directly from Microsoft.

By merging the Solulan methodology and the Skype Operations Framework, we are able to provide customers a streamlined Collaboration and Unified Communications solution delivery with a fully functional Skype for Business environment as Business outcome. Our offering Solu-Skype is available Online, Hybrid, or with an On-Premise architecture. It will also include important workloads such as Cloud PBX and PSTN Conferencing to ensure your Skype for Business environment is fully comprehensive.



Benjamin Franklin supposedly once said, “If you fail to plan, you are planning to fail.” Sir Winston Churchill is credited with another, often repeated, saying: “Those who fail to learn from the past are doomed to repeat it“. Solulan will spend a fair amount of time understanding your Business Goals and Objectives, the Budget you are planning to use, the Scope of your Voice, Meetings and Collaboration needs. Then Solulan will complete a thorough Network Readiness Assessment (QoS, Capacity, Performance) and will spend time disclosing the network services considerations and options available to you. Solulan will also show the depth of features available to your end users to ensure full alignment of your expectations with what the Skype for Business is able to deliver.


Aligned business requirements – Technical Architecture & Design – Network Readiness



Once you have fully grasped the extent of the Skype for Business value proposition and identified that it is the right solution, the Solulan team will work with your team to kick off the project using a very pragmatic project management approach. We will work with you on defining a very thorough migration and end user Change Management strategy based on our Office 365 Massive Open Online Course (Office 365 MOOC) to allow all your users to not only accelerate their adoption of Skype for Business but also the overall Office 365 Business Value. Solulan will also work with you and your current Telco carriers to unlock the value of SIP Trunking so you can reap the financial benefits of this technology and easily manage the porting of your current phone numbers on the Skype for Business platform.


High quality service delivery – High end-user adoption rate



As your users are deployed with Skype for Business, we will ensure to put in place regular weekly touchpoint to provide appropriate attention to potential obstacles along the way. We will also put in a place network monitoring and diagnostic tools that will automatically provide your IT Admin team with insight and suggest appropriate corrective actions in case Quality of Experience challenges are being experienced by your user base. This approach will ensure a very proactive way to troubleshoot technical challenges related to your newly deployed Skype for Business Environment.
