Offers MSPs access to SIP Voice Services on Skype for Business Server via seamless and reliable APIs

Toronto, Canada – (PRWEB) – July 11, 2016

Bandwidth, a communications API leader, today announced that its SIP Voice Services portfolio has been certified by Microsoft to power voice within its on-premises Skype for Business Server unified communications solution. The announcement was made as part of the 2016 Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference, taking place July 10-14 in Toronto, Canada.

Skype for Business enables connectivity to the Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN) directly over SIP to provide flexible unified communication capability with reduced cost.

  • Bundled services: Bandwidth’s bundled services make it fast and easy to add SIP to a UCaaS offering, helping MSPs determine specifics regarding seats, trunks, minutes, SMS, 911 and more.
