Microsoft Teams - Direct Routing


Benefits of Direct Routing

​Because of the complex architecture that goes along with Direct Routing, customers are able to custom build their network with robust features while taking advantage of their existing hybrid, on-prem SBC, or Cloud network setups.​

Customers can work directly with their local telco to enable calling features for Microsoft Teams users while keeping their existing investment into their calling infrastructure (PBXs, Call Centers, and Analog Telephony Adaptors (ATA)).

  • Highly Customizable​
  • Can use existing PSTN infrastructure​
  • Phase your migration by department, office, or number range​
  • Existing PBX co-existence (Must first migrate from legacy telephony systems)​
  • Available Globally​
  • Bring your own Carrier Service​
  • Local PSTN survivability via SBA

Direct Routing (DRAAS)​

Teams Certified SBCs require knowledge workers and maintenance that make them difficult to maintain. Because of this, many organizations choose to go the Direct Routing as a Service, or SBCs as a Service Route.​

This allows for an organization to outsource their certified SBCs in order to integrate into the Teams Cloud calling ecosystem without the heavy lift of maintenance and certification.​
