COMMUNICATION WITH USERS OUTSIDE OF OSU
The Skype for Business system is federated (connected) with several outside entities, including the Wexner Medical Center. This federation allows you to use your OSU Skype for Business account (firstname.lastname@example.org) to send and receive Instant messages to them without having an additional account or using a personal account. Skype for Business Mac users also have the ability to communicate with other federated Skype for Business networks.
Note: Skype for Business accounts with PC-to-PC or Voice could have additional video capabilities, depending on what options the remote system features.
Please see KB05529 for a complete list of federated partners and additional instructions.
