“Microsoft Teams is one of the fastest growing enterprise collaboration tools in the world – now Ribbon and Yealink are working together to bring an innovative solution to market that will allow an entire organization’s employee base to realize the full benefits of Teams, even as separate groups are gradually migrated to the Teams voice capabilities,” said Alvin Liao, Vice President of Product at Yealink. “Many organizations believe that they have to wait until their entire employee base has been migrated to Teams before purchasing the latest models of Microsoft Teams SIP phones, so that all employees will be able to collaborate in the Teams environment. Yealink and Ribbon are addressing this issue with our fully-featured Teams phones, which can be deployed before the Teams migration is completed. Our extensive line-up of SIP phones uses Ribbon’s Microsoft-certified session border controllers (SBCs) to route phone calls in the absence of the Microsoft Phone System, providing everyone in the organization full access to Teams collaboration capabilities.”
“We have a long standing, strong partnership with Yealink and our latest offering puts us squarely in a market-leading position that delivers a unique offering for enterprise customers migrating to Microsoft Teams,” said Patrick Joggerst, Chief Marketing Officer for Ribbon. “In addition to offering Teams collaboration capabilities to the entire organization prior to or during the migration process, or in the event of an interruption to the connection to the phone system, these phones can make and receive calls leveraging Ribbon SBCs. The innovative new solution provides end-users the ability to switch to Ribbon’s SBC technology for call routing with a single tap of the finger, adding an important call survivability feature not previously available.”
