Cost-effective calls with Microsoft Teams

Secure voice services with industry-leading call quality

A seamlessly integrated PSTN solution for Microsoft Teams

With over 75 million daily users, Microsoft® Teams enables employees to effectively communicate from any location via text chat, voice call, or video conference. Today, Microsoft Teams can even replace your company's existing private branch exchange (PBX) telephone system—empowering users to take and make calls from a desk phone or internet-connected device. However, to use Microsoft Teams as your company’s new telephony system requires an additional PSTN (public switched telephone network) service. This is where Masergy steps in, providing voice services in 25 countries with superior call quality all while reducing management across disparate vendors.
