NTT has been selected as one of the launch partners for Operator Connect for Microsoft Teams, which brings PSTN calling to Teams, providing integrated calling functionality that simplifies business communications.
NTT as a launch partner for Operator Connect represents another key milestone in the strategic alliance between NTT and Microsoft.
