Paging With Microsoft Teams

Ever had one of your favorite products that you use every day and that contributes to the simplification of your daily tasks get discontinued? A client of ours found themselves in a similar situation when Microsoft ended their on-premise Skype for business system. SkyTerra was able to help them find a solution so they could still simplify daily tasks, backup data and use paging with Microsoft Teams.


The client was using four on-premise Skype servers to maintain, patch, secure and backup their data. Additionally, they were using a SNom paging system to communicate with other areas in their office building including the manufacturing floor that was compatible with Skype’s SIP protocol. SkyTerra needed to not only migrate the client to Microsoft Teams but figure out how to get the paging tool to work with MS Teams when there was a tech language disconnect.

SkyTerra essentially created a converter using a session border controller (SBC). They connected the SNom paging system with the SIP protocol to an SBC virtual appliance that could connect to MS Teams via Port 443 protocol. SkyTerra deployed two SBCs to each of the client’s locations and were able to keep and continue to use their SNom paging devices.
