Microsoft Teams and Skype for Business: How to Migrate with Mediatrix Gateways and SBCs

INTEGRATE MICROSOFT TEAMS AND SKYPE FOR BUSINESS INTO LEGACY TELEPHONE SYSTEMS

Many enterprises may choose, at first, to keep their on-premise legacy equipment while adopting the UC tools of Microsoft. Preserving CAPEX investments and keeping specialised functionalities already set in place can justify the coexistence of the legacy equipment integrated in the new Cloud Telephony system.

Mediatrix assures smooth communication and maximum compatibility between all SIP variants and phone equipment worldwide. As a result, businesses can take advantage of all UC services with minimum investment and quick deployment.

SIP MIGRATION WITH TDM REPLACEMENT/PSTN REPLACEMENT

The need for high-quality voice, video, data, presence, and chat, as well as other ways of collaborating, is a reality for both operators and end-users. This convergence, however, can rarely be addressed overnight in small organisations. Thus, SMBs tend to choose a gradual migration to SIP, where hybrid IP and traditional systems must connect seamlessly.

Mediatrix gateways are the most comprehensive VoIP platforms enabling routing control of ISDN PRI, E&M, and R2 E1/T1 CAS calls during a complete or partial SIP migration, ensuring:

  • Flexibility and interoperability between many devices;
  • Survivability and quality of service during each phase of SIP migration;
  • High levels of security with encrypted signaling and media incoming and outgoing

ENHANCED SECURITY IN PURE IP NETWORKS

Mediatrix multi-service business gateways also ensure high-availability and service excellence for end-users in pure IP-based systems using Microsoft Teams, Office 365, and Skype for Business.

Our complete portfolio of SIP solutions relies on advanced security protocols to offer end-to-end network protection. The SIP over TLS (Transport Layer Security) functionality, enabled in all Mediatrix platforms, allow signaling and media encryption, protecting devices from malicious attacks.

Sentinel SBCs also feature Topology Hiding and Denial of Service (DoS) for pure IP networks. Sentinel stands as a border controller between the enterprise and the public network, hiding the topology of private IP addresses and devices deployed on-premise. Any attempts to pass through this border is analyzed and approved or rejected based on predefined established rules
