Use Cases Now Open to Microsoft Teams Environments

Microsoft Teams provides a great platform for collaboration and Rove is the ideal solution to provide wireless flexibility in various work environments. Let’s look at some of the benefits that wireless handsets can enable, when using the Teams SIP gateway with Poly Rove:

Healthcare: Hospitals and clinics need to streamline communication so they can respond quickly to patient needs, which in turn improves patient satisfaction. The efficiency gained from deploying mobile wireless solutions helps to address the shortage of trained health workers and improve working conditions, which is key to retaining staff.

Retail: Managers and shop floor staff need to be mobile, visible, and able to spend more time in front of customers. With the mobility enabled by Poly Rove headsets, these teams can provide better customer service and respond much more quickly to in-store incidents, such as spillages and theft.

Manufacturing/Warehouses: Wireless handsets eliminate paging delays, improve operations, and enable faster responses to problems and emergencies, thus reducing downtime and production slippage.

How Does the Microsoft SIP Gateway Work?

The Microsoft Teams SIP Gateway was designed to let users connect their Teams account with a traditional phone line, enabling you to use your handset to dial into a meeting or make calls using Teams. The SIP gateway also allows users to route incoming calls from Teams to a traditional PBX system, providing next-gen calling capabilities within a legacy on-prem phone system.

Benefits of using Teams SIP Gateway with Poly Rove:

  • Sign into Teams remotely via Teams Admin Center
  • Make, receive calls with hold/resume
  • Transfer calls, forward calls
  • Local Conferencing
  • Voicemail and message waiting indicator
    • Listen to electronically stored voice messages left by callers
    • Receive notifications for new voicemail messages
  • Manually dial into audio conferences
  • Static emergency calling and location support with dynamic Emergency 911


With Poly Rove running on Teams, you ensure your organization has the secure mobile phone solution they need to get their jobs done and stay connected to remote team members. The Teams SIP Gateway will be available for the Poly Rove Products by the end of July 2022, allowing you to optimize your legacy phone systems with a future-proof solution designed to scale as you grow.
