In case you missed it, AudioCodes just became the latest phone vendor to become certified for Skype for Business Online, meaning that the 440HD phones can be used both on-premises and online. Other phones in the series including the 420HD and 450HD should follow shortly.
AudioCodes phones are a very compelling addition to the Skype ecosystem in my opinion due to several factors.
- They have the ability to leverage the SILK protocol right on the phone.
- The single-vendor aspect for phones, management, and SBC/ATA/Gateway hardware.
- The very competitive price-point.
- Their IP phone management suite, which is even available free for up to 500 phones.
