Tata Communications Partners With Microsoft Teams

Microsoft Teams and Tata Communications

The collaboration leverages Tata Communications’ GlobalRapide platform to facilitate carrier-grade PSTN voice calls on Microsoft Teams devices worldwide. 

In a move to enhance collaboration and connectivity options for enterprises in India, Tata Communications has joined forces with Microsoft. The partnership aims to bring flexibility to collaboration tools, particularly Microsoft Teams, for businesses operating in the country. 

The end-to-end managed services layer of the platform simplifies the deployment, onboarding, and management of Teams, endpoint devices, and session border controllers (SBCs). This integrated approach improves usability, security, and regulatory compliance while also removing additional hardware expenses for enterprises.

Sriram Sampath, Vice President of Unified Communications and Collaboration at Tata Communications, emphasised the importance of global partnerships with local expertise as businesses expand and geographical borders shrink due to collaboration tools. The collaboration with Microsoft’s Operator Connect for Teams is anticipated to boost workforce productivity and efficiency for enterprises, aligning with local regulations and compliance.

Microsoft, represented by Shruti Bhatia, Country Head of Modern Work and Surface for India and South Asia, expressed satisfaction with the partnership, emphasising their commitment to delivering efficiency and productivity gains for businesses across India. The collaboration aims to support enterprises in growing and scaling seamlessly, efficiently, and securely in an increasingly interconnected business landscape.

The collaboration leverages Tata Communications‘ GlobalRapide platform to facilitate carrier-grade PSTN voice calls on Microsoft Teams devices worldwide. This capability is made possible through the utilisation of the Operator Connect platform, enabling Indian enterprise users and multinational corporations with a presence in the country to communicate on a global scale.
