Tango Extend – The eSIM for Teams Phone

Recognized as the “highly commended” Best Microsoft Teams Solution by UC Award judges.

Tango Extend enables calls to be made from the native dialer on virtually any mobile phone, using an existing Teams number.

Tango Extend enables mobile phones to become another endpoint – like a desk phone, conference phone, Desktop or laptop Teams client.

Tango Extend seamlessly brings Teams to employees on-the-go and the deskless workforce, such as frontline, hybrid and gig workers in retail, delivery, service, education, finance and virtually any industry. Tango Extend can be used by organizations of any size who have deployed MS Teams and want to enable more users to use calling plans when out of the office.

Watch an interview with Andrew Bale, President of Tango Networks, explaining to Tom Arbuthnot, Co-founder of Empowering.Cloud, what Tango Extend can do for your business and why this launch is so significant.

How it Works

Tango Extend enables existing fixed Teams numbers to be loaded on an eSIM through the Extend provisioning app in the Teams app store.

Once installed, the eSIM and Teams number become the business line on the mobile phone. You can then use the native dialer to make and receive Teams business calls, just as if you were at your desk. The business line will ring on your mobile together with your desktop, Teams app and your desk phone. Calls can be answered on any device.

Simple 5 Step process to get up and running

Each Teams User is provisioned with a Tango eSIM in their mobile phone. Most mobile devices have an eSIM slot to enable a business SIM to be added alongside their personal SIM. eSIM installation takes minutes using a QR Code – and after a simple pairing process, the eSIM is connected to the Teams User’s account and Teams phone number. Watch the installation video below to see this process in action.

Locate the Extend app in the Teams app store

QR codes are used to install the eSIM on the end user’s mobile device, from the provisioning App. The Tango Extend provisioning app is called EXTEND in the app store. This app needs to be made available to end users before they can download it to their Teams desktop.
