Australian-listed cloud communications provider CommsChoice Group has expanded its key network infrastructure in the Asia Pacific region, the US and Europe, including “significant” expansion of its Direct Routing capability for Microsoft Teams Phone System, Global PBX and SIP trunk services.

CommsChoice Group (ASX: CCG) CTO, Tristan Plummer, said that the company has expanded its Microsoft compatible Session Border Controller (SBC) network in the APAC markets of Sydney and Singapore, the USA in San Jose and Virginia, and in Europe in London and Frankfurt.

“We are very excited about our expansion into the USA and Europe, and with the continued growth in the uptake of these services in the Asia Pacific region,” said Plummer.

Plummer said the SBC’s have been strategically installed alongside Microsoft media farms worldwide to minimise latency and enable quality global voice solutions for our Microsoft partners and customers.

According to CommsChoice the deployment of Microsoft Teams compatible SBC’s will greatly assist companies to implement unified communication (UC) solutions more quickly, easily and securely, providing a UC-centric platform that allows enterprises to “quickly, safely and efficiently transition to IP-based communications without exposing their network to security or quality issues”.

“Our approach, combined with our extensive array of carrier partners, provides a unique solution. We offer local PSTN dialing and direct in-dial numbers in 79 countries as well as number portability in 53 countries. This allows us to deliver services on a truly international scale,” Plummer said.

Plummer said the workplace communication has fundamentally changed as collaboration platforms like Microsoft Teams have worked their way into the enterprise, and the growth of unified communications for remote work and work from home will continue to increase, further expediting the desk phone demise.

Security requirements such as confidentiality, integrity and authentication have become mandatory in most industries.

Data encryption methods previously used only by military and intelligence services have become common practice in all data transfer networks across all platforms, in all industries where information is sensitive and vital (financial and government institutions, critical infrastructure, data centres, and service providers).
