How does it work?

A complete, cloud-based solution with hybrid flexibility.

 

Simplified Connections and Reduced Implementation

Telstra Calling for Office 365 removes the complexity of managing a dedicated PSTN telephony network. Telstra provides a managed link bringing all your voice calls directly into Office 365. So all you need is adequate internet access and all your telephony and data can be delivered anywhere at any time. Additionally, there are no special infrastructure or voice calling access considerations when subscribing to Telstra Calling for Office 365. Avoid the long lead-times that often accompany waiting for conventional solutions to be set up and tested.

Use your Existing Numbers

Each user is allocated a phone number that is associated with their Office 365 client. This number brings the public telephony service directly from the Telstra phone network into Office 365. You can choose to migrate or port your existing phone numbers into Office 365 or you can allocate new ones. As your needs grow or users change roles you can easily reallocate numbers via the Office 365 administration portal.

Flexible Implementation

If your entire organisation is not ready for a full migration to the cloud, then opt for our hybrid solution. Keep complex users on premise and start moving users to the Microsoft cloud at your own pace.
