Microsoft’s premium Office 365 Enterprise Suite, Office 365 E5 offers a number of new features including S4B as standard and the optional add-ons of Skype Meeting Broadcast, Cloud PBX and PSTN conferencing.

Businesses are then able to assign and manage phone numbers using Skype controls within the Office 365 console, as well as being able to dial-in telephone numbers for your Skype meetings.
