AudioCodes: Voice DNA for the digital workplace
AudioCodes has partnered with Microsoft since 2006, providing innovative voice solutions for Microsoft unified communications solutions—from Office Communications Server through Lync and Skype for Business, right up to Microsoft Teams. The company's One Voice for Microsoft 365 portfolio of products and solutions includes Microsoft-certified session border controllers (SBC), IP phones, media gateways, and voice network management tools. These are designed to simplify and accelerate the adoption of Microsoft unified communications solutions, whether they are deployed fully on-premises, in the cloud, or as hybrid solutions.
Session border controllers are key elements in any IP-based voice network, delivering reliable connectivity between next-generation VoIP networks and legacy environments. AudioCodes SBC has a field-proven track record of reliability, scalability, and comprehensive interoperability in multiple voice environments, including Microsoft Teams and Skype for Business.
Enterprises, contact centers, and service providers are looking to migrate to cloud-based voice communications to benefit from the flexibility, scalability, and cost-effectiveness they offer. Ensuring reliable connectivity with legacy systems and service provider networks is a critical part of the migration process.
