I know that both Polycom and Yealink have SIP firmware, but it's not compatible with either vendors SIP firmware.

I'd easily pay extra $$ to skype to be able to integrate their services into our SIP platform somehow.

Overall, what are service providers thoughts on Skype for Business? Looks like in late 2015 they gave office 365 users with certian plans the ability to use Polycom Phones with their service (using the could PBX features), and a nice handy tool to assign DIDs in realtime to users. They also have the ability to port numbers in.

Now in preview, they are adding auto attendants and hunt group functionaility. Once this is GA, I think this will be a viable competetior to the Broadsoft and Metaswitch shops out there.

What are you overall thoughts?

Pricing is a bit expensive, but you get so many services for the price it might be hard to compete. No to mention video calling with billions of users, chatting with all skype users, etc...
