Join a skype for business meeting using your telepresence video system
Telepresence video systems use SIP as a signaling protocol, this is an IETF standard. All modern videosystems today support this standard as a way to communicate with other systems no matter which vendor you are using. Skype for business, on the other hand, use a different protocol for signaling, this makes Skype products incompatible with SIP based videosystems.
When you call a skype for business user directly from your telepresence video system or a skype for business user calls you, the call is made using an address both systems can understand and the call is bridged automatically. But in the case of a skype for business meeting the address you dial is not supported by telepresence video systems. To solve this problem you can use a virtual meeting room to bridge a call between skype for business and your telepresence video system.
