Telstra today announced it is a selected carrier for Microsoft
Azure Peering Service, a networking service that enhances customer
connectivity, and Operator Connect for Microsoft Teams, a new
programmatic approach to operator-provided calling in Teams.
Today’s announcement builds on the long-standing relationship
between Telstra and Microsoft to help enhance connectivity to
Microsoft cloud services and provide an integrated calling
experience via Teams.
Microsoft Azure Peering Service provides reliable and optimized
internet connectivity to Microsoft cloud services such as Microsoft
365, Microsoft Dynamics 365, and Azure. Customers can register for
the offering in the Azure portal, and Telstra and Microsoft will
work closely to provide enterprise customers with end-to-end,
high-performing public connectivity with optimal routing in their
This offering is integrated with Telstra Global Internet Direct
(GID) to ensure robust connectivity service and secure access
through a single network. Additionally, customers will enjoy high
levels of availability of service and lower latency connections.
Telstra is now offering Azure Peering Service to customers in Asia,
with plans to expand availability to Europe and the United States
next calendar year.
Building on the momentum from the launch of Telstra Calling for
Microsoft Teams in August last year, Telstra has streamlined
calling for users by providing a simplified and unified
collaboration experience for organizations through Operator Connect
for Microsoft Teams.
This offering will enable organizations to speed up and simplify
the provisioning of telephony services and reduce deployment time
by using advanced automation that integrates architecture
components between Telstra and Microsoft. Additionally, business
users will experience enhanced voice call quality through the use
of private network infrastructure and administrators will gain
ability to provision and manage telephone numbers via the Microsoft
Teams Admin Center.
Sanjay Nayak, Telstra Executive of Fixed Connectivity Products
said as organizations accelerate their digital transformation
journey, underlying technologies like cloud and network
connectivity need to work smoothly with reduced complexity.
“Microsoft Azure Peering Service provides direct access between
Telstra and Microsoft’s networks – providing users with robust
connectivity service at a location nearest to them, thereby
reducing latency when accessing Microsoft’s workplace services. By
leveraging Telstra’s connectivity and professional services
capabilities and Microsoft’s focus on intelligent cloud services,
we aim to help organizations across the region and globally enable
a modern work experience,” said Mr. Nayak.
Taimoor Husain, Modern Workplace Strategy and GTM Lead for
Microsoft said: “Telstra has been a long-standing partner for
Microsoft since 2008. With internet traffic growing at an
exponential rate, coverage has become critical for effective
virtual collaboration. We look forward to tapping the breadth of
Telstra’s network to build the modern workplace and enable more
