Cloud Care from Enabling Technologies
Get Voice Service from Office 365 with High Quality and Peace of Mind
Microsoft’s Office 365 Cloud PBX provides innovative voice features in a cloud delivery and operational expense model. New sites and users can get voice services in minutes, or existing phone numbers can be ported in a staged transition. Meetings of up to 10,000 participants can use Microsoft’s infrastructure, without the need for on premises servers.
The Cloud’s Simplicity is Only Part of the Picture
The end game sounds appealing; no servers, predictable OpEx, and integration with the Office 365 stack. But the moving parts do take some careful planning and support. Calls will traverse either the open Internet or an ExpressRoute circuit. Phones on premises will rely on your IP network and DHCP. Calls may traverse WiFi, from home or coffee shops. Meetings will include anonymous external attendees. Users can make VoIP calls over their cell phones’ 4G data plans.
Enabling’s Cloud Care service can help manage these variables. During this transition, user impressions will ultimately define success. With Enabling’s engineering and support, you can avoid the pitfalls that befall other service provider customers. Without, you may experience quality issues such as one-way audio, erratic meeting entry, and dropped calls.
