Jabber Integration with Skype IM/Presence

Hi group, would like to understand if we can achieve the integration of Skype with Jabber for IM/Presence capability. Believe it was not available earlier. Please let me know if you have any enhancements in this regard.

Skype is a closed system and doesn't support xmpp

You can reach out to nextplane.net<http://nextplane.net> and see if their UC federation services supports Skype since they support other closed systems like google and yahoo

If you want audio video there is skystone from imagicle. Might want to ping them too

Venkat,

     If you find out anything interesting, I'd appreciate your sharing. The Skystone product appears to be something that's just using screen area capture and virtualized audio devices, and piping those in to a phone. (Manycam and Virtual Audio Cable are examples of some of the poor-man's building blocks to this sort of thing). Probably reasonable for small business, but not all situations.

     Unfortunately Skype has a huge user base that we interact with (students, remote lecturers), which can't be easily supplanted so I too am interested in ways people can or have integrated it with their UC platform.

You can look at Acano

It's more for video/audio bridging and interop but it shows presence status of the Acano co space. Blue Jeans used to support Skype but they found many users just use the browser to join. I agree with that logic that while Skype is definitely present in many consumer scenarios, if you are sitting on your desktop, one can join from a browser easily too. On the mobile side one can look at apps like Jabber or third party apps from other vendors.

Try Cisco UC Integration for MS Lync. Rls 10.6 works well with Presence in Lync.

Yes that is correct but the question was more along the lines on someone who had Skype running in parallel and wanting to integrate with Cisco vs CUCI which assumes UCM is the backend pretty much. Two different type of solutions. Hence the solutions posted are more integration gateways cloud or on-premise.

Enable Federation between Cisco Jabber and Microsoft Skype For Business (SFB) Server

XMPP service runs on Skype For Business (SFB) Front End and Edge Server. You can use this component to federate with internal or external Jabber setup. You can also share same name space between the platforms. Thus, enabling instant messaging (chat) and presence between Jabber and SFB users.

A reference diagram to connect Skype For Business (SFB) with Cisco Unified Presence Server (CUPS) as a federated partner. In this case, you don’t share similar SIP domains on CUPS and SFB servers\pools.

Hello everyone,

I wonder if Cisco Jabber offers integration with Skype for Business.

I have found the following tool Cisco UC Integration(TM) for Microsoft Lync, but I think it may be overkill for our requirements.

I would like to accomplish the following. After finding the contact in Skype for Business and clicking call the call to be pointing to the Cisco Jabber (call to be placed) rather than to the Skype for Business. Thank you.

Regards,

Daniel
