UC integration business Qunifi, which manages a global network of infrastructure running hosted voice services including Office 365 voice integration platforms, has launched Call2Teams, a cloud service that enables SIP trunk integration into Microsoft Office 365 and Teams.
"SIP trunk providers can be Microsoft Teams enabled in less than a day without needing any specialist skills or training with Call2Teams," said Call2Teams CEO Mark Herbert.
"The service has been created for SIP trunk providers who want to avoid the costly investment into skills and equipment needed to deploy and support Microsoft’s mandated Direct Routing infrastructure, and the consultancy needed to configure and support the customer’s Office 365 network."
The creators of Call2Teams removed all the hardware, software and skills needed to interface any standard SIP Trunk into Microsoft Teams.
"Microsoft’s Teams collaboration and document management suite is making headlines as the fastest growing business application in the company’s history, and with 275% growth forecast in 2020, it’s set to smash through the 50 million user threshold," added Herbert.
"Microsoft is starting to promote the Phone System capabilities of Microsoft Teams, which are adequate for many SMB and mid-size customers and will be a disruptive force in the PBX and phone services industry.
"SIP trunk providers may find they’re in direct competition with Microsoft who have their own call bundles and numbers for Teams users, so having a Teams-ready offer will allow them to compete effectively and attract new and retain existing customers during this period of opportunity."
