Australian-listed cloud communications provider CommsChoice Group has expanded its key network infrastructure in the Asia Pacific region, the US and Europe, including “significant” expansion of its Direct Routing capability for Microsoft Teams Phone System, Global PBX and SIP trunk services.

CommsChoice Group (ASX: CCG) CTO, Tristan Plummer, said that the company has expanded its Microsoft compatible Session Border Controller (SBC) network in the APAC markets of Sydney and Singapore, the USA in San Jose and Virginia, and in Europe in London and Frankfurt.

“We are very excited about our expansion into the USA and Europe, and with the continued growth in the uptake of these services in the Asia Pacific region,” said Plummer.

Plummer said the SBC’s have been strategically installed alongside Microsoft media farms worldwide to minimise latency and enable quality global voice solutions for our Microsoft partners and customers.

According to CommsChoice the deployment of Microsoft Teams compatible SBC’s will greatly assist companies to implement unified communication (UC) solutions more quickly, easily and securely, providing a UC-centric platform that allows enterprises to “quickly, safely and efficiently transition to IP-based communications without exposing their network to security or quality issues”.

“Our approach, combined with our extensive array of carrier partners, provides a unique solution. We offer local PSTN dialing and direct in-dial numbers in 79 countries as well as number portability in 53 countries. This allows us to deliver services on a truly international scale,” Plummer said.

Plummer said the workplace communication has fundamentally changed as collaboration platforms like Microsoft Teams have worked their way into the enterprise, and the growth of unified communications for remote work and work from home will continue to increase, further expediting the desk phone demise.

Active Vs. Passive DWDM Solutions

An active approach to your growing optical transport network & connectivity needs.

Building dark fibre network infrastructure using WDM technology used to be considered a complex challenge that only carriers have the means to implement.

This has led many enterprises to build passive networks, which are inferior in quality and ultimately limit their future growth.

Why are passive solutions considered inferior? And what makes active solutions great?

Read more about these two solutions, and how PacketLight fits into all this.
