Microsoft Teams brings the chatroom into the enterprise. Part of Office 365, Microsoft Teams is quickly growing into the go to application for business productivity.
Microsoft is starting to fold the cloud-based Skype for Business functions into Teams to create a new, modern unified communications platform. This means your phones and video conferencing devices will need to support Microsoft Teams.
IP Phone Warehouse is here for you. We have a dedicated page for Microsoft Teams phones. As our partners release new products and updates, we’ll keep you up to date.
If you are a current Skype for Business customer and want more information about what Microsoft Teams means for your communications, see “Journey from Skype for Business to Teams” on the Microsoft website.
Because Microsoft Teams is a comparatively young platform, it’s still early days for device support. This week, however, two major manufacturers have announced Microsoft Teams compatibility: Polycom and Yealink.
Here’s a rundown of the announcements. Note that these are provisional and might change.
Polycom Solutions for Microsoft Teams
Polycom provides a complete portfolio of Microsoft communications solutions, from voice to video to services. And they’ve been doing this for over 15 years at this point. So it’s no surprise that Polycom are quick out of the gate with support Teams.
Polycom Trio with Microsoft Teams
You wouldn’t think that an enterprise conference phone could be a hot product, but Polycom Trio defies expectations. People are amazed when they hear just how much better a conference call sounds with Trio.
Polycom Trio will support a native call experience for Microsoft Teams, so you get the same user experience that you currently get with Skype for Business of Microsoft Lync.
