SANTA CLARA, CA--(Marketwired - Dec 14, 2016) - PanTerra Networks, the leading provider of unified cloud services for mid-market enterprises, today announced their integration with Microsoft's Skype for Business, increasing customer reach to those customers wanting to use Skype for Business as a front-end interface for communications. WorldSmart's new Skype for Business plugin (S4B plugin) extends PanTerra's ultra-reliable telecom service to customers who are Microsoft-centric on the front-end, using WorldSmart's ultra-reliable, telecom back-end infrastructure to communicate with the Skype for Business client. The S4B plugin functionality includes:

  • Ability for users to leverage the ultra-reliable WorldSmart back-end service to make and receive calls directly from the S4B/Skype interface. 
  • Ability to have multiple active calls ongoing simultaneously. Place active calls on hold, make additional outbound calls, receive multiple incoming calls. Active calls can be transferred (blind or supervised) or conferenced together with a simple click of a button.
  • Allows calls to be made or received from ANY device (built-in softphone, registered IP phones and even smartphones/cell phones).
  • WorldSmart real-time call presence to the S4B presence engine.
  • Softphone dial pad and direct Skype contact call action for direct outbound dialing.
  • Universal search box allows direct searching and calling of Skype contacts by name or number.
  • Recent events window with active and historical calls. 

"The S4B plugin provides seamless connection between WorldSmart and Skype for Business, enabling ultra-reliable telecom features such as multiple active calls, calling from any device, call transfers and conference calling and simple name/number searching. The S4B plugin is another example of how PanTerra supports and interoperates with other communication applications while leveraging PanTerra's ultra-reliable, secure communication infrastructure," said Arthur Chang, CEO of PanTerra. He continued, "We'll continue to embrace other applications and services that are complementary to our already feature-rich unified communications solution and integrate them with our WorldSmart service."
