Microsoft Teams Direct Routing allows Teams to connect to local telphone network (PSTN) or SIP trunk providers via a certified session border controller (SBC). Direct Routing provides Teams a great deal of flexibility when it comes to their voice infrastructure and facilitates co-existence with legacy voice and Unified systems. Session border controllers (SBCs) connect Teams calling capabilities to the session initiation protocol (SIP) trunks from their telecommunications providers. SBCs enable calls to external parties directly from Teams. SIP trunks can be a cost-effective way to establish Microsoft Teams Calling. It provides the ability to match the number of simultaneous calls to your requirements.
