  • Skype fro Business Server is the back end server that hosts Skype for Business Applications. There is a Skype for Business Client and Skype fro Business Basic Client. 

    Skype fro Business Client is the full version of client which have all the features enabled. The Basic client however does not have Enterprise Voice related features enabled. 

    "Features not supported in Lync Basic include multiparty video, OneNote integration, virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) support, skill search, recording, Enterprise Voice features, and advanced call handling (for example, call forwarding and Team Call)"
