MetTel, a digital transformation and communications leader, today announced that Microsoft has named it a Partner for Operator Connect for Microsoft Teams, an operator-managed service. As an Operator Connect Provider, MetTel brings the Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN) connectivity to Microsoft Teams, building on MetTel’s existing direct routing solution within the platform.
This partnership means that Microsoft Teams customers can select MetTel as an operator and access the MetTel network from within the Teams platform to call any number in the world. By peering directly with Microsoft over a private interconnection, MetTel customers will enjoy greater service reliability and fast, automated provisioning, with direct support and joint technical expertise provided through MetTel’s 24×7 customer service ready to assist at any hour.
“MetTel’s Operator Connect partnership provides the ability to leverage Teams comprehensively for voice services and eliminate redundant phone systems,” said Marshall Aronow, CEO of MetTel. “This investment greatly expands and strengthens our UCaaS and collaboration portfolio.”
Company CTO Ed Fox added, “We are very excited that Microsoft recognized MetTel’s network capabilities in choosing us as a partner for this select environment. Having a dedicated private interconnection with Microsoft provides additional quality, reliability and security for our customers and channel partners.”
