As a Microsoft partner in Switzerland, we are well known in the market thanks to the success of the projects we have led around Unified Communication and Collaboration. In addition to our other areas of expertise, we are now positioned as a UCC Specialist with a proven track record in Microsoft technologies and its ecosystem. We look forward to working with you on your telephony projects.
Two possible uses:
Create real added value by implementing a Unified Communication tool that integrates natively with the rest of your suite tools Office 365
Use Teams without SIP Trunk Telephony (VoIP)
Initially, the internal installation of the solution will allow you to benefit from basic functionalities such as chat (Unified Messaging), screen sharing and video conferencing. In addition, enjoy instant access to SharePoint, OneNote, PowerBI and the Planner. Create and edit documents directly in the application.
Teams with SIP Trunk telephony (VoIP)
Finally, you will use the other Microsoft features Teams to make calls to the outside world. Thus, you will benefit from a powerful tool to collaborate within your company. From then on, you will also be able to communicate from or to the outside.
2 scenarios for telephone integration
In these two cases of figure, Lambert Consulting will intervene as a specialist and advisor. We will be able to give you the points of attention in your project of migration as well as the risks and how to protect you from them. We position ourselves on the customer's side so that you can always be free to change your solution without incurring high costs. Please note that many optimizations are possible with the solution Skype for Business that you will not find in Microsoft Teams. Ask us for advice in case of doubt.
Hybrid with SBC (Direct Routing)
With this solution you will no longer have server on site, everything will be on Cloud. The only thing you will have left is your SBC (Session Border Controler) certified which will make the link between Microsoft Teams and your operator. The main compatible editors are AudioCodes and RibbonCommunications. This solution is necessary if you need to keep analog devices on site, Server DECT or simply make a slow migration from your old PBX to Microsoft Teams.
Our recommendation: A hybrid solution would allow you not to lose control over your business telephony. You will avoid dependence on your operator and will be able to easily renegotiate your rates with them at each telephony contract renewal. In case of dissatisfaction or other differences with it, the cost of changing your telephony Teams to a new operator will be almost zero compared to having to redo a project of migration from zero. Contact us for more information and let's discuss your long-term goals.
100% Cloud (3 sub-scenarios)
Calling Plan : First of all, this solution will not give you the choice of the operator (UPC, Sunrise, Swisscom, ... ), you will pay directly your phone minutes to Microsoft via its offer.
Partner Hosted : In this 2nd sub-scenario you use Teams with the Direct Routing function but this time with the SBC "hosted" at the provider. In this 2nd case you will become very dependent on your operator because you are committed to contracts of several years. You can ask for your integration offer to Lambert Consulting who will take care of finding you the most suitable operator for your needs and budget.
Operator ConnectIn this 3rd sub-scenario, we use Teams with the function Operator Connect. It is the equivalent of the 2nd scenario but more expensive with a direct integration in your M365 holder.
