Video Blog ▶ Self-Service Microsoft Teams Direct Routing Connectivity At Your Fingertips

Microsoft Teams is the world’s leading platform for unified communications and collaboration, with more than 320 million active users1. There are three ways to connect Microsoft Teams to the PSTN to unlock its full potential as a replacement PBX solution – Calling Plans offered by Microsoft, Operator Connect offered by certain service providers and Direct Routing.

Direct Routing works using a Microsoft-certified session border controller and is the most flexible option of the three since it allows end users to bring their own carrier (BYOC) as well as enable connectivity with existing voice and contact center platforms.

Don’t Have the Staff? Don’t Worry About It!

But acquiring, installing, configuring and maintaining a Direct Routing SBC requires personnel and expertise, which is not always available or indeed desired.
