Ribbon Cloud Link is an integrated appliance that combines Ribbon’s award- winning session border controllers with embedded Skype for Business Cloud Connector Edition software. It enables you to transition from an on-premises PBX to Skype for Business Online. You can choose Cloud Link as a feature of the SBC 1000 or SBC 2000.
Cloud Link connects on-premises legacy telephony elements to the Microsoft Phone System. It provides Active Directory dial plan integration to help you migrate to Skype for Business Online at your own pace. Active Directory integration facilitates presence awareness for legacy endpoints.
Ribbon Cloud Link comes pre-loaded with Cloud Connector Edition software and all necessary licenses, saving time and cost associated with sourcing servers and software separately. The GUI Setup Wizard significantly reduces the complexity and time needed to configure Cloud Connector Edition, decreasing deployment times up to 70%.
