Teams and Teams Telephony – Reworking Physical Spaces
Once you have determined your policies for maximum communications flexibility, use them to guide your approach to physical space. From this point forward, businesses can NOT rely solely on physical spaces to collaborate, connect, and build social equity. That is not to say physical space isn’t still important, because it is. People are social beings, and they want to get together, bounce ideas off one another, and feel the energy of in-person discussions. To have the ability to read body language and communicate live. Microsoft has been researching their employees and looking at everything from graphs, to habits, and employee traffic patterns. Just to understand how best to equip teams with the spaces they need, while knowing those needs will evolve over time.
Working Towards a Technical Equality
Attempts are being made at how to reimagine physical settings because everyone does not have the same home-based opportunities. Some simply do not have an ideal home environment for remote work, be it unreliable internet, distractions from family/roommates, or even that they do not have enough space for a designated work area. These notions of technical equality are important, so some employees are not at a disadvantage.
A successful transition will have mitigated or even eliminated these issues about how they implement hybrid work. For example, sales teams who need to come to the office infrequently can use a hoteling model to book workstations for the day or hour, while engineering teams may need dedicated collaboration spaces and workstations. To accommodate remote workers, some companies are considering offsite coworking hubs or onsite communications rooms.
One thing we know is how we work will continue to evolve, so we greatly recommend building flexibility into every space that is designed or reimagined. Moving forward, office space needs to bridge the physical and digital worlds and meet the unique needs of every team and specific roles.
Bridging the Gap with Teams Rooms for Maximum Unified Communications Benefits
Initially, it’s critical is to begin bridging the gap between in-person and remote experiences. Working together when everyone is in the office is practiced and straightforward, but now we figured out how to get things done anyway. For less money. Isn’t that the point?
What remains now, is how best to handle that middle area, combining the people physically together, and others are joining virtually. That is surely going to be the real
challenge. As remote and hybrid workers now leave a lot of empty office space, one trend has been towards building what’s being referred to as a “Teams Room.” This adaption of space is being used to provide an amazing quality collaboration and communications atmosphere that can serve multiple purposes.
Investing in your Foundation – Unified Communications Benefits are Forever
Today’s state-of-the-art Microsoft Teams Rooms include high-quality audio and video to help everyone be seen and heard. Meeting room cameras deliver high-definition video streams and optimize the view by framing the people in the room or following the active speaker. Intelligent speakers identify who in the room is speaking, and individual names and profiles are represented in meeting transcripts.
People onsite can write directly on a Surface Hub or even from their own phone or laptop, while remote participants can draw on the same shared digital canvas. In addition, Intelligent Capture cameras can capture, focus, resize, and enhance analog whiteboard images and text, so remote attendees can clearly see brainstorming, even when someone is blocking the whiteboard.

Research and forecasting show that unifying collaboration tools with business telephony is the next step, as businesses continue to move more and more functions to the cloud. This can be accomplished with Microsoft Direct Routing and Teams.
With a cloud-based telephony system, users can make and receive calls on their existing business numbers, through the same provider, from any location, using any internet-enabled device like PC’s, desk phones, cell phones and tablets, just to name a few. While VoIP technology is hardly new, tying it to and using it with Direct Routing and Microsoft Teams is, and it is creating a lot of movement.
Benefits of Unified Communications (UCaaS) with Direct Routing
Simply put, Microsoft’s Cloud Telephony offering brings together both internal collaboration and external telephony, all routed directly through the Microsoft Teams interface. By harnessing the power of Microsoft Direct Routing, companies are now able to receive Unified Communications as a Service UCaaS), using the well-known and easy to use Microsoft Teams interface.
How Microsoft Teams Changed Cloud & VoIP Telephony
Cloud telephony is replacing a physical Private Branch Exchange (PBX) system. Until IP based phone systems were validated for business use, a PBX was the only way to integrate telephony into a business. Rife with issues, limitations and fees, traditional PBXs came with their own proprietary phones, with no way to re-use them with a different system. This made changes difficult and costly.
IP based phone systems (VoIP) are now beginning to be used in conjunction with Microsoft Direct Routing, through Microsoft Teams. This is a new and growing trend of how companies connect their systems to a telephony network, resulting in a more secure, better managed system with premier High Definition quality video and audio.
Teams Makes Telephony INCREDIBLY Better – All managed through a single pane of glass interface!
With the shift to distributed and remote workers, Direct Routing through Microsoft Teams is an ideal way to modernize all working environments and to streamline communication for any workforce, especially those with multiple locations. This managed service is more flexible and cost-effective, as the managing provider brings technical support and expertise as well as PSTN integration via Direct Routing, to be sure of a smooth transition and a successful implementation.
Organizations with more than 100 people systematically choose a managed provider to connect their calls using the Direct Routing option. Popular because a company can keep their existing phone numbers (and provider), which will enable moving to a Cloud voice solution. The entire Cloud Telephony system is managed centrally in a fixed-cost scenario, so charges for the whole organization are included in one agreement.
Direct Routing turns Microsoft Teams into an enterprise-wide telephony solution that is fully integrated with the widely used Microsoft 365 software suite. It provides a uniform experience to everyone everywhere, through a MS Teams interface that is available on multiple devices and platforms.
