Now that Skype for business works both ways with Lifesize (yay!), let's take it a step further.
One of my customers is very happy with the S4B and Lifesize compatibility and uses it a lot. However, he has set up his external DNS to allow for email dialing into Lifesize cloud. You know, like in this article: Enabling email dialing.
Here is the issue. When a S4B users wants to call them, they still need to use the firstname.lastname@example.org address because the email dialing doesn't work, because S4B looks for different records in the DNS to establish a connection.
As far as I know all he needs to add in his external DNS are CNAME records for sip.<domain>, sipexternal.<domain> and lyncdiscover.<domain> (where <domain> is the customers domain) pointing to the edge servers, in our case lifesizecloud.com. If this is wrong, please correct me on this, it hasn't been tested yet.
The only unknown is: does Lifesize support email dailing from S4B clients?
So, Lifesize, do ya?
Thanks for any replies and thoughts,
