    I looked at the merged idea to this link - the ability for Sametime to connect to Skype for business needs to be handled by the Sametime Gateway.

    With the Nextplane solution, they simply act as an additional "gateway" between the ST GW and SkypeForBusiness.

    I believe the ST GW could be configured to work with Skype for Business but there needs to be a DNS routing piece included as that is how SfB finds the SIP gateways. There is also a certificate element to be considered too.

    I have worked extensively in this area with Clients and with Netxplane on IM coexistence solutions, so I will gladly talk and help out to move this idea forwards.

    Skype is different to Skype for business...as the previous guest commented, Skype For Business is the same as Lync.
    The only way possible right now for Sametime users to connect to Skype for Business (in O365) users is through Nextplane. If the Skype For Business is on-premise, then a SameTime Gateway is able to be connected... but that method won't work in the cloud unless you use Nextplane.
    Why doesn't IBM offer a free, limited entitlement to interconnectivity through Nextplane?

    Our recommendation for federation with other platforms such as Microsoft is leveraging a provided such as NextPlane who specializes in this technology, and is able to maintain currency with any changes Microsoft (or other platforms) may opt to make in their product or support.

    The original Skype client is being dropped. Its replacement, Skype for Business, is based on Lync.
