Common applications within Microsoft Teams include:
Enabling Legacy Voice Paging Systems: For example, the Algo 8301 Paging Adapter & Scheduler will allow you to seamlessly bridge analog devices and Teams as these adapters are fully compatible with Teams.
Deploying IP-based Voice Paging Systems: Algo’s IP Speakers provide a seamless, feature-rich voice paging solution that seamlessly integrates with Teams’ SIP Gateway. These speakers offer flexibility, wideband support, two-way communication, and ambient noise detection.
Emergency Notifications and Alerting: Algo’s audible and visual alerting devices are perfect for efficient emergency alerts and telephone ring detection in Microsoft Teams setups. Algo’s Visual and Audible alerters provide highly attention-grabbing notifications with ultra-bright multi-color LED visuals and high-intensity audible alerts.
Multicasting in Teams: Algo’s IP Endpoints support RTP multicast and can be configured as either multicast senders or receivers. Leveraging multicast within a Teams environment enables organizations to efficiently expand their communication reach across various buildings, campuses, or enterprise settings while keeping costs and complexity in check.
Ring Detection and Loud Ringing in Microsoft Teams: Loud ringing devices provide the necessary volume to ensure phone rings are heard, even in noisy environments. These devices are crucial for critical situations or when workers need to be notified. Also, Algo IP Speakers and Visual Alerters can directly connect to the Microsoft Teams SIP Gateway and be linked to the specific user or phone requiring extra ring notifications.
Check the following requirements when registering an Algo device to the Microsoft Teams SIP Gateway: access to Algo’s web interface, you have Firmware 5.3.4 or higher and that MS Teams support is enabled in the firmware, Microsoft SIP Gateway is enabled, MS Teams license, MS Teams production environment supports Algo, and the device certificate is installed.
