Analog device integration in SfB online only infrastructure RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    Is it possible to integrate analog devices (phones, overhead paging) to SfB online. In my understanding, its not possible to integrate. But not able to find out any official document for the same. Can anyone please share if there is any official document available.

    Regards,

    AJ

    So we absolutely have on the roadmap a lightweight set of ATAs that can be used for analog devices.  Essentially the ATA will log into Office 365 like an IP phone does today.  Don't have a timeframe for availability at this time though.  So for the time being I suggest keeping the analog phones in place while you migrate users over to Cloud PBX and PSTN Calling.

    It is possible with Audiocodes devices (CCE appliance and Mediapack):

  • Thanks for your response Erdem.

    Is it possible to integrate analog device directly to cloud, without adding any on-prem components ?

  • Hi Alias Jacky,

    Based on my research, On-premises and Hybrid solutions allow for support of analog stations. Fax machines and modems are recommended to utilize POTS lines or PBX, and not flow through Skype, I couldn’t find Microsoft official document, but you can refer to the blog below
