This software is pre-installed on staff computers running the Deakin Desktop or Deakin Shield environment.
Deakin has transitioned from physical phones to software-based telephony, powered by Microsoft Skype for Business (formerly Microsoft Lync). This allows you to use your Deakin phone number from anywhere on almost any device, as well as use text-based instant messaging and video calling, share your screen with others, conduct multi-person conferencing, and hold online meetings.
To connect to a VMP (Virtual Meeting Point) or invite an external guest to join, refer to the VMP knowledgebase articles. To set up and get started with other Skype for Business features, download the Skype for Business Quick Start Guides.
