With our international reach, we can provide PSTN or Toll-free access numbers to extend the functionality of the feature-rich Skype for Business conferencing features. Enabling a SIP trunk to allow external participants access to the Skype for Business conference bridge is often the first step customers will take to a full Skype for Business SIP trunk deployment. Historically customers have used dedicated conference providers like AT&T, Intercall, or Webex to provide hosted conferencing solutions. With Skype for Business, this can now be controlled in-house as well as providing the users with additional functionality like integration with Outlook, web-based presentations, and etc. The addition of international access numbers extends the reach of the conference bridge, providing significant savings over traditional conference solutions.
A channel is a single voice path. A customer with 10 channels has the ability to receive 10 calls across any of the numbers assigned by Pure IP to the conference bridge.
Customers decide on the type of access number required and the total number of channels that are required on the SIP trunk; for example, 10 European PSTN access numbers with 60 voice channels that can be shared across all numbers. Pure IP provides utilization graphs to show whether the channel volume is properly dimensioned which will eliminate congestion.
The configuration and implementation with an existing Skype For Business installation are straightforward and can be set up within 48 hours of order.
As with all services, Pure IP is happy to provide a free trial of our Skype for Business conference access numbers.
