Microsoft Teams Rooms requirements

Microsoft Teams Rooms scale to different room sizes. Teams Rooms use a wide variety of certified audio and video peripherals based on the size and use of the room. By selecting the right core device and console, combined with microphones, speakers, cameras, and displays appropriate for the space, you can deploy Microsoft Teams Rooms into spaces of any size from small huddle spaces up through large conference spaces and boardrooms. The full set of all available certified audio and video peripherals that may be used to configure your room is available in the Device Showcase.

This article summarizes the device deployment and configuration requirements for supporting Microsoft Teams Rooms.

Your deployment involves resource account creation and setup of Teams Rooms as described in Deploy Microsoft Teams Rooms.

Refer to:

Note

Microsoft Teams Rooms sign in to Microsoft Teams, Skype for Business Server 2019, or Skype for Business Server 2015 and may join meetings hosted by any of these services.

Earlier platforms like Lync Server 2013 are not supported by Microsoft Teams Rooms. Microsoft Teams Rooms is not supported in Microsoft 365 or Office 365 operated by 21Vianet, or DoD environments.

If you have an on-prem Exchange server, Microsoft Teams Rooms requires the use of Exchange Server 2013 SP1 or later.

USB extenders

  • USB ports on tablet docks are USB 3.0 compatible. You can use a USB 2.x extender but you'll be limited to USB 2.x speeds on the far end. Extenders are not recommended for USB 3.0 peripherals.
  • An extender must meet USB 2.0 or newer specifications.
    • Tablet docks support at least two stages of external USB hub extension. If you connect more than two USB hubs in series, check with the dock manufacturer to confirm whether they support series connection.
    • Wired GbE connection in the room. Ethernet cable of appropriate length.
    • Up to two 1080p displays with HDMI connections. HDMI cables of appropriate length.
