  • For conferencing, you'll need "E" license. So, E1 will do.

  • Hi Ion Vlad Orascu,

    Agree with Thamara.

    For your environment, MS recommends that using Office 365 E1 license.
    A Skype for Business Online Plan 2 or Office 365 E1 or E3 license is required to enable Skype Meetings.

    For the Skype Room account, the following licensing is required:
    1.A Skype for Business Online Plan 2 or Office 365 E1 or E3 license is required to enable Skype Meetings.
    2.To entitle the room with the Enterprise Voice capability so the room can be enabled with a phone number, a Skype for Business Online Plan 2 with the Cloud PBX Add-on or Office 365 E5 is required (1).
    3.The availability of PSTN Conferencing entitlement within any given meeting is determined by the license of the meeting organizer.

  • Hello Thamara

    Thank you for the quick answer.

    But would it work fine if I create a user, lets say User-C (from conference) ... , assign it an Kiosk licence, enable it to Skype and use it to make conferences like from my user to that users, the only difference being that mine is configured on a computer and that one on a conferencing system? Like between 2 computers?

    On the manual it says "Endpoints using Microsoft Office 365 accounts must be SIP-registered to Microsoft Skype for Business Server in order to join calendar meetings", and Kiosk also has email and calendars, does it not?

  • The bottom line is, if a user involve in conference, the account should have a Enterprise CAL. In your case, an E grade license. It will work with other licenses, but, it's not legal to do so.
