Skype for Business (SfB) is a Microsoft program that enables you to communicate with others via instant messaging (IM), audio / voice and video calls. Skype for Business will be the primary phone solution at UiB in 2018.
When you start making calls with SfB, your regular physical office phone will be taken out of service, but you will keep your phone number (e.g 5558****). In case you only have a mobile phone covered by UiB today, you will not be able to call external calls with SfB, but you can 'skype' colleagues at UiB and use SfB for video conferencing and instant messaging.
