This article is intended to support you with the integration and configuration of anynode to provide Exchange Unified Messaging functionality to PBX users in an environment in which a Skype for Business Server 2015 server deployment is available and configured to deposit voicemail into Exchange Unified Messaging (either on-premises or as part of Exchange Online).
This method allows replacing the traditional approach of directly connecting the PBX to Exchange Online UM via a SIP trunk between an on-premise SBC and Microsoft’s SBC in Office 365.
TE-SYSTEMS anynode provides this capability through the unique combination of it’s proven SIP interconnection capabilities (which are qualified in Microsoft Skype for Business interoperability programs) and of Microsoft Skype for Business Unified Communication Managed API (UCMA).
