Exciting news is at hand. Telstra and Microsoft have today announced Telstra Calling for Office 365!

What does this mean?

Unlike other global regions such as the US and UK, if PSTN calling was desired for use with Cloud Based Skype for Business Online users, you had two choices:

  • On-Premises PSTN breakout via Hybrid Skype for Business Server/Skype for Business Online
  • On-Premises PSTN breakout via the deployment of Cloud Connector Edition

As of today’s announcement, this will no longer be a requirement – you will be able to obtain (or port) phone numbers directly from Microsoft/Telstra. This has been on the road map for quite some time, so it’s great to see this finally being an option in Australia.

More details to come.
