Basic Microsoft Teams IP Phones
In a recent blog, Microsoft announced some new more cost-effective IP Phones are being added to the Microsoft Teams device line-up.
These phones will be coming from AudioCodes, Poly, Yealink starting early 2021 with with “physical buttons (so presumably no touch screen to save cost), high-quality audio, and core calling features at an affordable price”.
These phones are designed for common areas and basic information worker scenarios
Microsoft Teams USB Phones
Some people just really like that phone handset and dial pad form factor, but don’t really need an IP Phone with a dedicated network connection. Microsoft will also be supporting new USB peripherals that have dial pads and a modern Teams user interface, featuring a Teams button and will connect to both a PC and Mac to bring a high-quality Teams audio experience. These will be available in late 2020 and the first of which will be shipped with Yealink MP50 (USB phone).
