Deltapath, the leading video focused unified communications solutions provider, announced today the release of Deltapath® frSIP® Skype for Business Gateway that offers extended communication solutions for all Skype for Business (formerly Microsoft® Lync®) users to interact via video with their external counterparts such as customers, partners, and suppliers in the open SIP world.
“Deltapath frSIP Skype for Business Gateway is the ubiquitous transcoder between Microsoft Lync, or Skype for Business to virtually any enterprise videoconferencing endpoints. It enables all Skype for Business customers to connect to their extended teams using open SIP and legacy H.323 videoconferencing endpoints, mobile devices, computers with web browsers, and SIP phones, vice versa,” said Andy Chan, Director of Solutions Architecture at Deltapath.
“Any to any” seamless communications connecting Microsoft Office 365 / Skype for Business and external team
“One of the main reasons for Deltapath to develop the Deltapath® frSIP® Skype for Business Gateway is to help customers to protect their communication infrastructure investment on videoconferencing rooms and IP phones. A lot of the Microsoft customers are facing a dilemma choosing between throwing away their existing room-based conferencing systems and replace with Microsoft Lync compatible room systems in order to collaborate with their customers, vendors or business partners on Skype for Business / Lync, or keeping their existing videoconferencing rooms isolated from the Microsoft world. Deltapath’s frSIP Skype for Business Gateway enables “any-to-any” seamless communications between all SIP and legacy H.323 videoconferencing endpoints, and all on Skype for Business / Lync clients with high definition video, audio, content sharing, and instant messaging,” Andy continued.
Deltapath frSIP Skype for Business Gateway transcodes between different codecs and translates between different protocols that supports numerous codecs such as H.263, H.263++, H.264, H.264 SVC (UCIF Profiles 0, 1), VP8, and RTVideo and call signaling protocols such as H.323, SIP, WebRTC, and Microsoft Lync.

Besides interacting via video, the Gateway enables Microsoft Office 365 Enterprise E1 and E3 customers to enjoy a preview of enterprise telephony on Skype for Business client by connecting their telephone circuits to the Deltapath® frSIP® Unified Communications Platform. “Users can make and receive traditional phone calls on their business phone lines using the Skype for Business client at anytime,” said Andy.
