SIP Domains to allow federation with in Skype for Business configuration:

  • rcvideo.net

  • smartmeeting.co.nz

DNS A record for ReadyCloud video federation gateway:

  • conf1.rcvideo.net

 

NOTE – the rcvideo.net and smartmeeting.co.nz domains have SIP TLS federation SRV records configured so it should not be necessary to specify the gateway DNS name.
