Module 6: PSTN Connectivity
A key component to a successful organization is the ability to communicate between internal employees and customers and partners. In order for this to happen organizations need to bridge communications between their internal communications systems such as Skype for Business Server 2015 and the public switched telephone network by using an existing Public Branch Exchange (PBX), gateway, or Internet service provider (ISP). Connection to the PSTN enables enterprise users to make and receive calls from external numbers by using the same Skype for Business client used for internal calls. In addition, employees can leverage the broad range of Skype for Business features to improve their communications interactions with external users connected through the PSTN.
