Skype4B-2019 KEMP Loadmaster

Yesterday i finaly got my lab running again. This time with 3 frontend server Skype server 2019 Evaluation in a Enterprise Pool, with SQL 2016 all running on Windows server 2016. Then I installed a KEMP Loadmaster VLM running HLB for the frontend pool. Works like a charm.
The next thing is to build a Medation server and Edge server and then connect it all to Exchange Server 2019.

More to come here soon.

Competella Upgrade from R2 to R2.5

Competella is one of the switchboard and Contact center providers for Skype for Business. For about 1 week a go they got a new version name R2.5.
When you want to upgrade the prosess is nice and clean. Just an inbound upgrade if you are on R2 version.
If you run Routing Agent to handle your busy-on-busy, well you need to go to build 137. If you have it already, well you don't need to upgrade to this.
Customers has alsread start to request this upgrade from R2 to R2.5, and also to ask for GDPR tuning for Comptella software, where Competella has provided a guide to configure this and make your Competella switchboard  and ContactCenter  GDPR ready.

Test Jabra Engage 75 [**UPDATE**]

From Tektracom I got the new Jabra Engage 75 MONO today as I wanted to test it out.

Jabra Engage 75 
As we can see we have a docking to charge headset. Listen to music from Spotify works smooth. One thing I think was not so good is that the first I had to do was to update the firmware on it. It comes with an old firmware, but since this is a new headset and new on marked, I was expected it to have the latest one.

After the upgrade it was just a quick config on what I shall use it for.
I have testet it around in my office and since it has DECT standard it works all up at 10th floor when the base was in 8th floor. 
That is real nice and impressing.

Would I buy this for people, YES. As a office headset it's real nice to use.
Since it has DECT it quite expensive but its just fine and nice to use.
I will give it and 5 on the dice.

**UPDATE**
Since it' based on new DECT technologi it will give better distance. I tried it during useing the office elevator here at work, and the cool thing is that I tried it with my co-worker Ivar Naggum, and he keept the call up all time (#Skype4B ) call, and when I got back in the DECT zone it continued the call. Real nice and smooth I think.
