How do Microsoft Teams phones work?
The telecommunication experts at Focus Group will take care of everything for you, in no time at all. Before you know it, the integration of the SIP trunks and an SBC (Sessions Border Controller) with your Microsoft 365 domain will provide your business with the power of the Microsoft collaboration tools, together with connecting you, Microsoft Teams and your teams to the outside world.
A Microsoft Teams phone system is the perfect replacement for a traditional, in-house business phone system, which can be costly and difficult to maintain. Microsoft Teams integrated with a cloud-based telephony solution uses the internet for voice calls, instead of legacy copper based telephone lines. It’s cost-effective, reliable, scalable and packed with call management features and an abundance of business benefits.
