Verizon announces Teams proposition in 80 countries

Verizon has announced a new collaboration service which will enable the company’s network customers to integrate their compatible voice infrastructure to a Microsoft Teams environment across 80 countries.

The service leverages Direct Routing and Verizon’s SIP Trunk connectivity, giving users access to Microsoft Teams’ collaboration features including calling to and from traditional phones, VoIP, or mobile phone lines. Powered by Verizon’s Session Border Control as a Service (SBCaaS), the virtualised, cloud based service reduces the need for organisations to invest in additional hardware.

Microsoft recently announced that its Teams platform is now being used by 500,000 organisations worldwide including 91 companies in the Fortune 100.

“Enterprises are always looking for tools and solutions for better productivity and collaboration,” said Shawn Hakl, SVP Business Products for Verizon. “By integrating Verizon’s SIP Trunking into Microsoft Teams, users get the best of both worlds. They are able to have reliable communication services from Verizon, seamlessly integrated into their Microsoft Teams collaboration software.”
