"The Teams’ calling features work just like any other telephone on the SkySwitch platform, maintaining rules, queues, voicemail and settings of each user. The combination of Microsoft Teams, SkySwitch and TeamMate Technologies enables users to place and receive calls over wired or wireless broadband connections via the Teams soft client running on a mobile device, tablet or desktop machine," said SkySwitch founder and President, Eric Hernaez.
"Over the past 18 months, Microsoft has opened Teams to integrate with the existing phone systems’ business use today," said TeamMate Technology founder, Micah Singer. "They did this first with the introduction of Direct Routing, allowing businesses to connect via SIP to the PSTN easily. The integration means that businesses don’t have to decide between the phone system they like and the Team Collaboration/UC tools they want. Now they can have them both."
"Whether you are leveraging Direct Routing to sell a SIP Trunk service, or going all the way to combine existing phone system intelligence into Teams, SkySwitch has the solution," added Hernaez. "With the TeamMate Connector, we’re adding value to our cloud platform, providing additional functionality via Microsoft Teams to the company’s Unified Communications service."
