As I start thinking about the design of Skype for Business solutions it becomes apparent to me that its time for a new visio stencil. Having been a little reserved with the new images that were introduced in the Lync 2013 stencil I thought its time to embrace the new.
The official Office Viso Stencil published on 19/01/2015 can be found here.
Having taken a look at these I must say that these will need to grow on me. Not a big fan of the dark shadow looking images that represent the servers (yet!). Feels a bit gloomy to me, I need clean, open looking shapes.
Below is an extract of the my Skype for Business stencil transformation
So what shapes are in the stencil?
- Skype for Business Servers, Roles and clients
- Anywhere 365 Servers
- Zeacom Servers
- Sonus SBCs
- Audiocodes SBCs
- All the usual Infrastructure and Server roles
- A bunch of Skype for Business\Lync related components
Here is a snippet of the shapes..
Of course I will update the library of shapes as and when needed. Happy to take on board suggestions.
