Disable VoIP for Skype for Business Online Meetings RRS feed

  • Question

  • Currently we use Skype for Business Online, with Cloud PBX. We are wanting to disable VoIP for Skype for Business Online meetings (attendees would need to dial in to Audio conferencing bridge or have conferencing Bridge Call them). If I create a New-CsConferencingPolicy and set AllowIPAudio to $false, will this be sufficient?

    Would setting AllowIPAudio to $false cause any issues with Skype for Business Desktop Client being able to do point to point VoIP calls?

    Thanks in advance.

  • Hi Danny,

    If you create a New-CsConferencingPolicy and set AllowIPAudio to $false, AllowIPAudio can be used to disable IP audio, but it doesn't prevent people from using telephones and dial-in conferencing to add audio to a meeting.it will not affect the peer to peer audio call. You could refer to the following link about influences of the AllowIPAudio to $false.

  • If you disable IP audio, dialing in wouldn't give you audio either.  Are you looking to have dial-in only but not allow people to use computer audio?  If so, that's not possible.  A workaround may be to cut and paste the dial-in details into a new meeting invite, and not give the link for users to join with the Skype client.

  • Yes, this is exactly what I wanted to verify. We want people to use the conference bridge to either get called back or to dial-in to conference bridge for audio. Seems like when we have a larger conference, the audio quality is bad for some people using VoIP because they are trying to use laptop mic and speakers or cell phone for talking. When they get dropped they are complaining that it is the Skype for Business service that is the problem and not realizing that it could be low Wi-Fi signal causing jitter/Average round-trip time/packet loss.

    Thanks!
