We're excited to announce that Telnyx is now a Microsoft-certified Operator Connect provider! Using Telnyx, your company can set up a direct connection to Teams in minutes for scalable, low-cost, high-quality voice calls to help your organization meet its collaboration needs. In this blog post, we'll explore what Operator Connect is and why you should use Operator Connect for Microsoft Teams with Telnyx.
Microsoft Teams is one of the most popular collaboration tools in the world, with over 270 million daily active users. However, their native calling plans are limited in terms of global coverage and cost savings, which is why many businesses choose to bring their own carrier to the platform.
What is Operator Connect?
Operator Connect is a cloud-based solution that enables businesses to make and receive calls to and from the public switched telephone network (PSTN) through Microsoft Teams. It’s a painless way to get started with PSTN VoIP calling, and it's more intuitive to scale than using Microsoft Teams Direct Routing alone. Read more on Operator Connect Vs Direct Routing.
Operator Connect is a relatively new offering and provides businesses with an easy way to connect their existing phone systems and their teams to the PSTN while utilizing Microsoft Teams. With Operator Connect, businesses can manage their connections and numbers in the Microsoft Teams admin portal, which gives them a fully transparent communications platform.
It offers several advantages that make it a great choice for businesses looking to get started with VoIP calling. For instance, it eliminates the need for on-site equipment, as all of the necessary hardware and software is managed in the cloud. It's also more cost-effective than traditional phone systems.
Finally, Operator Connect makes it easy to scale up or down as needed, allowing businesses to add or remove phone lines as their needs change. This makes it ideal for businesses that need to quickly add or remove lines without the hassle of installing new equipment or purchasing new phone numbers.
Overall, this solution is a flexible, cost-effective way to make and receive calls to and from the PSTN through Microsoft Teams. With its ability to scale, businesses that need a flexible VoIP solution should consider Operator Connect as an alternative to Microsoft’s calling plan.
