“We don't have anything further to publically announce at this time.”
“The steps are basically to purchase the license, assign it to a user, then allocate phone numbers and assign those numbers to users. A couple resources that may be helpful - https://support.office.com/en-US/article/What-is-PSTN-calling-3dc773b9-95e0-4448-b2f1-887c54022429 talks through the PSTN Calling service. I did a video with Jeremy at launch that goes through it as a demo as well: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Cxawu9mIag
You do need to have a US address to subscribe to PSTN Calling, as it's only available for sale in the US today.”
“Yes absolutely - you can port existing numbers as well. Some information on this is available here: https://support.office.com/en-us/article/What-is-number-porting-9ca1f247-fb2f-4875-893c-7c94a7808567”
“Replying again, apologies if this comes up twice....
There are a few models that you can look at there. This page https://technet.microsoft.com/library/mt612869.aspx gives a good overview of the different choices and has links that go into more technical material.”
“Unfortunately due to regulatory restrictions here we can't disclose the list of countries or timelines any more specifically at this time. We definitely understand the difficulty this creates in trying to plan for the future, which is why we work hard to have a clear public roadmap for all of Office 365 at http://roadmap.office.com”
“Totally hear the feedback. We had to draw the line somewhere in order to get the initial release out the door and Organizational Auto Attendant just fell below that line. It's definitely in the works though, and the beauty of Cloud PBX is the ability to get new features in front of users without a big upgrade. When we have timelines to share, we absolutely will. In the meantime, come over to the Office 365 Skype for Business group on Yammer to continue the discussion: http://aka.ms/Office365Network/SkypeforBusiness”
“Sorry for the delay in reply; just getting caught up after the launch activities. We definitely have these items on our roadmap for 2016. We'll be updating the public office roadmap accordingly. Thanks!”
“Cloud PBX is available worldwide. PSTN Conferencing is available in 15 countries. PSTN Calling today is US only.”
“Yeah, absolutely. You need an on-premises server only when you're connecting with existing telephony infrastructure in your site. If you're using PSTN Calling with Cloud PBX, there's no on-premises servers needed. Today, PSTN Calling is only available in the US but will be expanding to include additional countries in 2016.
