My day job is titled "Technical Lead, MS UC" - I work with an awesome group of people at CDW, LLC. I focus on collaboration and infrastructure. This means Exchange of all flavors, Skype, LCS/OCS/Lync, Windows, business process, and learning new stuff. I have a variety of interests - some of which may rear their ugly head in this forum. I have a variety of certifications dating back to Novell CNE and working up through the Microsoft MCP stack to MCITP multiple times. FWIW, I am on my third career - ex-USMC, retired US Army. I have a fancy MBA. One of these days, I intend to start teaching. The opinions expressed on this blog are mine and mine alone.


IP Phones in the Teams Road Maps

Hello all,

I got some good stuff from my friend Daryl over at AudioCodes the other day.  Daryl Hunter is a voice architect over there; he just knows stuff.  Good source.

At any rate, the important tidbit for our purposes is that Daryl/AudioCodes thinks that Microsoft has a solid chance of making good on it's 2Q2018 target for IP phones to be used in Microsoft Teams.

Note the "Calling Road Map"

This means that your existing SfB/Lync IP phones can be re-used with Teams.  Nice.  Hate to buy that stuff more than once.

FYI, here is the two road maps.  Note that they conflict to a small degree, but generally say the same thing. 

The “static roadmap” PDF is here: https://aka.ms/skype2teamsroadmap and using phones is road mapped for 2Q2018.  The “interactive roadmap” is here: https://products.office.com/en-US/business/office-365-roadmap?filters=%26freeformsearch=teams%20calling#abc and shows the same info (CY2018) but doesn’t specific 2Q.  It was refreshed last Friday.  

I also think that the casual reader could benefit from reading the FAQ - it gives some quasi-good answers to the "why" questions that are bound to come up.
