How to Enable High Availability for your Microsoft Teams Phone System
We know downtime in your calling service could seriously impact your day-to-day operations. So, to support your communications in the event of a Microsoft Cloud outage, the integration of failover capabilities is crucial.
How does it work?
BlueSky UC failover capability ensures route incoming calls to a temporary emergency phone number without need of a Survivable Branch Appliances (SBA). You can add this feature to your main number with no additional charge.
