Microsoft Teams Direct Routing, Microsoft Teams Direct Routing Provider
Implementation of Microsoft Teams Direct Routing
Whether an organization is already making use of Microsoft Teams Direct Routing internally or migrating from another communication system altogether, implementing Direct Routing can be stress-free.
Roll out Microsoft Teams internally
Organizations should implement Microsoft Teams for internal communication. Moving to Microsoft Teams internally will already bring huge benefits in terms of productivity, collaboration, and communication. Even if organizations are utilizing a different UC platform such as Skype for Business, both solutions can operate together in the short term. This makes migration to Microsoft Teams Direct Connect simpler for a lot of organizations.
Configure SBC, SIP, and Media Bypass
The majority of implementations of Microsoft Teams Direct Routing Provider work using SBC (Session Border Controller), which is even referred to as a PSTN Gateway. SBCs are set out at the border between networks to make sure data is securely transferred between the public internet and the private network. A cloud-based SBC will need to be configured to properly route calls between the service provider’s network and Microsoft Phone System.
In a few situations, providers may implement media bypass to lessen traffic to Microsoft data centers and enhance call quality. Media bypass works by sending data from users directly to the SBC instead of Microsoft Phone System. This cuts down the path for media traffic and the number o hops required enhancing system performance, while even having the choice to fall back on non media-bypass when required.
Port Existing Numbers
During the transition, it is necessary to impact employees as little as possible. That means porting their DID/DDI number – the individual extensions on the legacy PBX – for all countries where it is possible so that users can hold on to their existing phone numbers.
If a country does not allow number porting or the organization simply wants to get new numbers, the managed provider should be capable of doing so. After the migration, it is also uncomplicated to add new users from the centralized interface.
