CallTower, a global leader in delivering cloud-based enterprise-class unified communications and collaboration solutions today announced that they would continue to support their Native Skype for Business through 2025.
This announcement ensues Microsoft’s recent notification that Skype for Business Online will be retired as of July 31, 2021. CallTower’s Native Skype for Business customers will not be impacted by this Microsoft transition, as their customers are on CallTower’s global private cloud. This private cloud operates on Skype for Business Enterprise Server Edition rather than the Skype for Business Online Edition. CallTower is continuing to invest in Skype for Business Server Edition 2019 to better serve and connect customers.
Skype for Business Server Edition 2019 is the newest software for hosted solutions. Alongside dynamic new features like Cloud Voicemail, Call Data Connector and side-by-side migration, it will bring the optimization and quality improvements resultant of running Skype for Business in Microsoft’s cloud.
