On-Premise without any Office 365 connectivity
This is typically a solution, where you don’t own an Office 365 “E” Plan. Therefore, you are not entitled using any of the Office 365 features. Same is valid, if you own only an Exchange Online Plan, whereby none of the Skype for Business Online Services are subject to be used.

On-Premise with Office 365 connectivity (Federation to Office 365 and Cloud PBX and PSTN CALLING SERVICE)
This is the only scenario, where users are hosted either in Office 365 and some users stay SfB enabled On-Premise. Meaning you have a mixed environment. This is the on…
