  • Hi Mark_Craddock,

    Thanks for your response.

    For O365 E1 plan, it only includes these following online server: Exchange online, SFB online, SharePoint online and OneDrive Business, office client applications not included in it. The article you provided means that O365 E1 plan includes SFB online backend server, with SFB online backend server, you could use the functions like online meetings, IM, and audio, HD video, and web conferencing with SFB client.

    Because in the E1 plan, the client application is not included, so in order to achieve these goals, you could buy Office 365 ProPlus, it contains the office client applications. Or you could consider the O365 E3 plan, with E3 plan, it includes SFB online and SFB client application.

    Hope all these information is helpful to you.


    Regards,

    Alice Wang

  • Hi Mark_Craddock,

    Based on my research, Office 365 Enterprise E1 plan is supported for Skype for Business online, the following is for your reference
    https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/office-365-plan-options.aspx

    Here is also a blog describes the limitations about Skype for Business online, for details, please refer to

  • Hi Alice,

    Thank you for the reply. I am aware of the above information but it is misleading. The above table, and details within the link I provided state, "Host online meetings with audio, HD video, and web conferencing over the Internet. Join meetings with a single touch or click from the smartphone, tablet, or PC of your choice"

    Within a PURE E1 license, you do NOT get the Skype for Business Desktop client, you only get a backend server

    account.

    So my question is, if you purchase ONLY an E1 license how does this enable a user to host  a meeting with audio and HD video?

    Mark
