Bonjour!!, great news for enterprises in France, Cloud PBX with PSTN Calling in France is in GA now.
What is Cloud PBX with PSTN Calling?
Cloud PBX is offered from Skype for Business Online and PSTN Calling is an add service that provides telephony functionality and Microsoft are the PSTN Carrier. Microsoft a telephone number and PSTN calling services and billing. PSTN calling provides users the ability to make and receive phone calls outside of the organization. Cloud PBX with PSTN CAlling does not offer the same functionality as an on premises deployment of Skype for Business Server with Enterprise Voice with on premise PSTN providers so be aware of this.
Microsoft are expanding the countries they provide PSTN Calling and now France has been added so Microsoft have four countries so far and are expanding.
Some highlights on the information ive found so far on PSTN Calling for France
From Microsoft’s Countries and regions that are supported for Skype for Business Online PSTN Services web page here
France is now listed below so in total we now have four countries available
Total Minutes available for France
- 1200 Domestic
- 1200 Domestic or 600 International minutes (which ever is reached first per month)
Thought id take a peck on on tenant and see what numbers are available.
I can now select France and they have a great selection of cities available for numbers which is great.
Overall another great step in expanding Cloud PBX from Microsoft i think.
