6:00pm – 6.30pm - Arrive and Networking

6:30pm – So you want to upgrade “on a shoestring” & then add resiliency?  - Dave Murphy - Microsoft

Skype for Business Server 2019 is the latest release of our on-premises communications platform.

Over the last few years I have worked with many customers who want to deploy our solutions, but are reluctant to “whole heartedly” commit and put in the infrastructure required from day 1. 

This session covers the upgrade process from Lync Server 2013/Skype for Business Server 2015 to our 2019 version whilst also considering when customers have merely “piloted” the product, but then want to expand it into Production adding resiliency to the solution.  The value for this session is not only providing an insight into the upgrade process, but also overcoming some of the challenges with customer decision points when deploying pilots or non-production like environments.

7:00pm – A comparison and overview of Certified Cloud Video Interop for Microsoft -  Graham Walsh - Pexip

In this session, Graham will run through the various options for organisations looking at VTC interop for Microsoft Teams and how users can migrate from Skype for Business to Microsoft Teams utilising Cloud Video Interop.  During the session, a demo of CVI will be shown in the session.

7.30pm - Break, Food and Drinks

8:00 pm –  Microsoft Teams Direct Routing - Martin Boam - Microsoft

Want to bring your own PSTN to Office 365 ?

in this session we will learn what is Direct Routing for Microsoft Teams and when to use it.

8.30 - 8.45pm - Q and A on sessions

8.45pm - 9.00pm Wrap up and Finish

If anyone that wants to join us after we will head to the pub for more networking.
