There are two certification levels, each having different specification requirements.

  2. Works with Skype for Business Works with Skype for Business is the designation for products that meet the minimum specifications outlined in the program. Following successful completion and test pass of the specifications, products will be deemed "Works with Skype for Business."

Only products that successfully pass the certification tests outlined in the Skype for Business Certification Program receive their respective designation. Specifications apply to each category based on, but not exclusive to, industry standards, enterprise class solutions, functional interoperablity or audio and video quality.
