In a previous blog bost various tips on deploying and managing Microsoft Teams Room (MTR) systems was discussed. One of the tips was how to manually update the Teams Room app running on the MTR. In this post, we dive deep and walk through the actual steps involved in updating the MTR system. As of this writing the latest Teams Room App version is 184.108.40.206 and readers may refer to the MTR Release Notes website to get the list of versions available. In this walkthrough we are following the manual update steps as stated in the official MTR Operations documentation for managing MTR systems, along with some potential issues to look out for while performing the process. My MTR system before starting the upgrade was running at version 220.127.116.11
Just last Friday Microsoft announced in their blog page https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Microsoft-Teams-Blog/Microsoft-Teams-is-now-a-complete-meeting-and-calling-solution/ba-p/236042 that MS Teams now has all the meetings and calling functionality of Skype for Business Online. The article describes how MSTeams is now a complete meeting and calling solution and a Teams Conferencing Gateway, which allows you to use existing Skype for Business certified SIP-based phones with Teams; and USB HID Support for Teams, enabling customers to answer, end calls and control mute and volume using USB peripherals. In addition, cloud video interop services to support Teams meetings with existing VTC systems are underway with offerings from Pexip, Polycom, and Blue Jeans to be generally available later this calendar year. Of course this does not mean that the roadmap has been competed as there are additional features coming in Q4 of this year as can be seen in the MS Roadmap available here: http://aka.ms/skype2teamsroadmap. The purpose of this blog post is to serve as an add-on to go into detail the configuration of the O365 tenant to allow for calls to work between MSTeams and Skype for Business users.
