Summary: Learn about the steps you need to perform to configure Skype Meeting Broadcast for your on-premises Skype for Business Server hybrid deployment.

Skype Meeting Broadcast is an online service that is part of Office 365. If you are running Skype for Business Server on-premises and want to use Skype Meeting Broadcast in your environment, you'll need to follow the configuration steps in this topic. Before you begin, your environment needs to be configured for hybrid with Skype for Business Online. For more information, see Plan hybrid connectivity beween Skype for Business Server and Skype for Business Online and Deploy hybrid connectivity between Skype for Business Server and Skype for Business Online.

You'll need to do the following to prepare your environment for Skype Meeting Broadcast:

  • Configure federation with Skype for Business Online resources

  • Configure SIP federated domains

To enable federation with Skype for Business Online resources, you need to configure External Access for a SIP Federated Provider. To do this by using the Skype for Business Server Control Panel follow these steps:

  1. Start the Skype for Business Server Control Panel and select External Access on the left.

  2. Select SIP Federated Providers and click New.

  3. Configure the new provider with the following settings:

     

    Enable communications with this provider:

    Selected

    Provider name:

    LyncOnlineResources

    Access Edge service (FQDN):

    sipfed.resources.lync.com

    Default verification level:

    Allow users to communicate with everyone using this provider.

You can also enable federation with Skype for Business Online resources by running the following cmdlet in the Skype for Business Server Management Shell:

New-CsHostingProvider -Identity LyncOnlineResources -ProxyFqdn sipfed.resources.lync.com -VerificationLevel AlwaysVerifiable -Enabled $True -EnabledSharedAddressSpace $True -HostsOCSUsers $True -IsLocal $False

Next, you need to add SIP Federated domains to the allowed domain list. Repeat these steps for each of the domains listed, creating 4 new SIP federated domains. These domains include are for the regional data centers used in Skype for Business Online.

  1. Start the Skype for Business Server Control Panel and select External Access on the left.

  2. Select SIP Federated Domains and click New.

  3. For the Domain name (or FQDN):, enter the domain, repeating this procedure for each of the following domains:

    • noammeetings.lync.com

    • emeameetings.lync.com

    • apacmeetings.lync.com

    • resources.lync.com

You can also configure the external access for SIP federated domains by running the following cmdlets in the Skype for Business Server Management Shell:

New-CsAllowedDomain -Identity "noammeetings.lync.com"
New-CsAllowedDomain -Identity "emeameetings.lync.com"
New-CsAllowedDomain -Identity "apacmeetings.lync.com"
New-CsAllowedDomain -Identity "resources.lync.com"

Once you've completed these configuration steps you can start using Skype Meeting Broadcast in your deployment. For more information about Skype Meeting Broadcast, see What is a Skype Meeting Broadcast? and Skype Meeting Broadcast Admin Guide.
