The StarLeaf Cloud supports calls into meetings hosted by a Microsoft AVMCU.

The following calling scenarios are supported:

  • From inside a Skype for Business meeting, you can add a StarLeaf Cloud registered endpoint as a participant. This scenario includes all StarLeaf and third-party endpoints that are registered to the StarLeaf Cloud, and includes both on-premise Skype for Business and Skype for Business Online deployments. Refer to How to add a StarLeaf Cloud endpoint from within a Skype for Business meeting, below
  • You can escalate a point-to-point Skype for Business call into an AVMCU meeting by ‘inviting’ a StarLeaf Cloud-registered endpoint to that call. This scenario includes all StarLeaf and third-party endpoints that are registered to the StarLeaf Cloud, and includes both on-premise Skype for Business and Skype for Business Online deployments. Refer to How to escalate a point-to-point call to a Skype for Business meeting, below
  • You can cause the Join Now button on StarLeaf Cloud room systems to light for AVMCU scheduled meetings. This scenario includes both on-premise Skype for Business and Skype for Business Online deployments. Refer to How to invite a StarLeaf Cloud room system to a Skype for Business meeting, below. This scenario does not include third-party endpoints that are registered to the StarLeaf Cloud (and does not include StarLeaf Personal Telepresence or software clients)
  • H.323 endpoints can call into on-premise Skype for Business-hosted meetings by utilizing the Skype for Business IVR (Interactive Voice Response). Refer to How to allow H.323 endpoints to call into on-premise Skype for Business-hosted meetings

Skype for Business federation and firewall requirements apply. The Skype for Business deployment hosting the conference must either have open federation or be federated with the attendee’s subdomain.call.sl address. For more information on federation and firewall requirements, refer to one of: How to use StarLeaf with Skype for Business Server 2015, How to use StarLeaf with Lync Server 2013, How to use StarLeaf with Skype for Business Online. Note that for Skype for Business Online, you do not need to open any additional ports on the firewall; the ports that you have opened for your Skype for Business clients to connect to the 365 server in the cloud are sufficient.
