Yealink Expands Portfolio for Microsoft Teams across Voice and video
Flexible device compatibility with both Skype for Business and Teams secures your future investment during migration
Yealink, a global leading unified communications (UC) solution provider, announced it is proud to deliver new audio and video devices for Microsoft Teams, including personal devices (T56A, T58A) and shared devices (VC200, CP960 and Skype Room Systems) that cover a wide range of scenarios, including offices, huddle rooms and large conference rooms.
Yealink audio and video devices for Microsoft Teams come embedded with the Teams application for a consistent user interface that incorporates the calling and meeting features of Teams. The Yealink one-stop portfolio makes it easier for customers to select the solutions they seek and easily collaborate using equipment from a single vendor.
As Office 365 customers move from Skype for Business to Teams, Yealink offers a flexible and diverse device portfolio that simplifies the device transition during migration. Apart from the Skype for Business IP phones (T4S series), the audio devices (T56A, T58A, CP960) can be upgraded from Skype for Business to Teams. The video devices (Skype Room Systems) are compatible with both Skype for Business and Microsoft Teams.
Audio solution for office workers and conference rooms
Yealink’s T4S and T5 series of Microsoft-certified desk phones include devices that range from entry level to premium level as well as the CP960 conference phone for huddle rooms and large conference rooms.
To help customers secure their investment for the future and to allow for better device planning during migration from Skype for Business to Teams, Yealink’s Android-based T56A and T58A desk phones as well as the CP960 conference phone have upgrade capabilities that allow for a transition from Skype for Business to Teams via device firmware update.
Video solution for desktops and huddle rooms
Yealink’s Android-based VC200 ably meet the increasing demand for high-quality video solutions for huddle rooms. The VC200 is the first Teams all-in-one device with hardware offloading. Through touchscreen monitor, the VC200 extends the familiar Teams user experience (UX) and enables customers to enjoy video collaboration easily with a low learning curve.
The Yealink Skype Room Systems (SRS) include the MVC500 for small rooms and huddle rooms, the MVC800 for mid-sized and large rooms. In the Yealink SRS solutions, the three-microphone array and sound bar deliver superior audio quality while the mini-PC and MTouch console are separated to minimise desk mass. The eight-inch adjustable MTouch console helps users choose the perfect touch angle that works best for them.
“We are committed to bringing our joint customers an easy collaboration device experience and to achieving the Intelligent Communication vision jointly with Microsoft.” said Stone Lu, Yealink’s co-founder and vice president of Sales and Marketing.
Bob Davis, Corporate Vice President, Office 365 at Microsoft Corp. added: “We are pleased to see Yealink expand their Microsoft device portfolio by introducing their new video solutions for meeting rooms.”
“Together with Yealink’s new phones for Microsoft Teams, this devices portfolio provides customers with high quality, flexible options to bring the Microsoft Teams experience to every space and user.”
The Yealink T56A, T58A and CP960 are certified for Microsoft Skype for Business. The Yealink video solutions for Microsoft Teams (including the VC200, MVC500 and MVC800) will formally be released in 2019.
They will be demonstrated for the first time at booth 2137 during Microsoft Ignite from September 24 through September 28 in Florida.
