Direct Routing for Microsoft Teams

Direct Routing offers the choice of staying with your existing telephony provider when using the calling capabilities of Microsoft Teams. You can connect existing analog, digital or VoIP lines using a Microsoft-certified session border controller (SBC). SBCs connect legacy systems and endpoints to the Microsoft Phone System. Ribbon is one of only a few vendors whose SBCs are certified to work with Direct Routing for Microsoft Teams. We work with Microsoft to test a continuous delivery of enhancements to the Phone System before they are made generally available. This level of cooperation drives Ribbon SBCs to be officially supported by Microsoft.
