Don't Lose Visibility into Skype for Business Performance in the Cloud

Office 365 Skype for Business gives organizations of all sizes the benefits of a robust unified communications platform with integrated IM, voice, video, and screen sharing features, without the costs and complexity of having to manage their own Skype infrastructure.

Unfortunately, IT teams find that using Skype for Business in the cloud means they lose visibility and control of service levels, Quality of Service (QoS) and Quality of Experience (QoE). If your users’ real-time communications are disrupted, they’ll stop calling each other and start calling you!

Exoprise CloudReady® gives you the insight you need to monitor and manage availability and performance for your Skype for Business deployment. Know about outages, dropped call issues, jitter, latency and poor QoE before they impact your business.

CloudReady is the only solution for synthetically monitoring Skype for Business using real clients

Monitor IM, Voice, and Video Performance Between User Locations

Skype for Business is a complex platform which delivers chat, VoIP, and video/screen sharing services over multiple point-to-point and routed protocols. Most monitoring solutions rely on direct access to Skype servers, but that level of access is not available with Office 365. This makes performance monitoring via most tools difficult, if not impossible.
