Hi Chris,

I appreciate your response. Would I like to know if it exists a specific best setup or "how to" about QoS for office 365 in ExtremeWireless Wing Architecture?

Is The VoIP recommendations enough to setup QoS for Skype business.

Wil, I don't think there's a 'Skype for business' specific how-to/best practices guide.

The VoIP guide should be sufficient for the voice side of Skype though.

If the Windows Skype clients are getting GPOs to configure the client with DSCP values, then the priority values are taken care on the client's side. From there, you just need to ensure that the AP-to-switch QoS mappings are matching and correct.
The good news is that even if they aren't matching, WiNG provides the ability to re-map CoS/DSCP to whatever you want.
