Working through many conversations with customers has lead to example the steps required to complete some Microsoft and Cisco integrations within the Unified Communications (UC) space. For the scope of this exercise, the Skype for Business and Jabber endpoints using the same domain will be enabled for direct messaging only communication. This is the first post in an intended mini-series referencing the integration as well as user experiences.
With the recent release of Cisco UC products, an additional feature has been delivered. Jabber messages, both internal and Mobile and Remote Access (MRA) connected, can now be delivered through Apples cloud-based Push Notification Service. While this may not peak everyones interest, it is a prelude to enabling the same functionality for other communication channels.
