Skype for Business

Skype for Business and Lync Server provides a unified communications (UC) solution that enables customers, colleagues, and business partners to communicate instantly by voice, video, or messaging through a single interface, regardless of their location or network.

Note that the concurrent failover/fallback feature is not compatible in a Microsoft environment.
