Microsoft Teams direct routing

Give Microsoft Teams a voice

Enable full voice capability natively into Microsoft Teams, as an alternative to Microsoft calling plans and without the need for on-premise hardware. 

Teams – Direct Routing utilises Microsoft certified Session Border Controllers (SBCs) to deliver better value, greater flexibility, increased functionality and support for migration, all as a cloudbased
service. 

Teams – Direct Routing provides connectivity to your Microsoft Team’s tenant enabling full PSTN breakout on the public telephone network. Connection from Microsoft Teams to our network is via an IP connection and is delivered as an end-to end service with high availability.

What about Skype® for Business?
Many businesses already use Skype® for Business as their Microsoft based telephony platform. However, Skype for Business is being retired in 2021 with Microsoft encouraging its users to make the transition to Teams. 

In addition to Skype and functions such as instant messaging, screen sharing and web conferencing, MS Teams adds centralised chat /  collaboration, persistent chat and much more.
