SIP trunking is a form of telephony that connects your business premise directly to the public telephone network using IP and broadband. This technology is what empowers most mobile VoIP solutions to provide high-quality voice and video calls.
Since launching in 2017, Microsoft Teams has become one of the most widely used platforms for virtual collaboration and communication. In fact, with 20 million active daily users and a growth rate of up to 50%, we believe this platform will continue to play an important role in business communications.
That’s why we want to make calling in Teams as accessible and straightforward to use as possible. Our interoperability tested direct routing for Microsoft Teams gives users access to a high-quality voice service from anywhere in the world thanks to SIP trunking.
Direct routing has the power to transform the functionality and usability of Microsoft Teams. But why is it a must-try service for any business?
What Are the Benefits of Direct Routing for Microsoft Teams?
How does direct routing benefit your company? Here are some of the reasons why thousands of companies across the globe are choosing direct routing for Teams.
Direct routing allows your company to make all of your calls within Microsoft Teams using a SIP trunk to route these calls over the Internet. Your chosen SIP trunking service acts as your telephony partner, connecting your Microsoft-certified Session Border Controller (SBC) with your Microsoft Teams users.
Improved Call Quality
By using an expansive Tier 1 carrier network, your business is guaranteed high-quality calls with HD voice. Using direct routing, you will be able to make enterprise-grade calls to landline and mobile phones, extending your capabilities far beyond internal collaboration.
A reliable SIP trunking service makes your calling process simple, quick and seamless. And if it’s a geo-redundant service, you will be able to connect to multiple points of presence using public Internet, MPLS, VPN or TDS — reducing the chances of delays or technical problems.
Enhanced Collaboration Made Easy
Collaboration is the cornerstone of any successful, growing business. Teams within the company need to have the infrastructure in place to collaborate digitally without experiencing any technical road bumps. Cloud-based communication means that each member of the company can contribute to projects, communicate and collaborate in real-time.
Direct Routing with SIP Trunking allows companies to facilitate collaboration in and outside of their business. Teams will be able to communicate and share on the cloud-based system within the company. At the same time, they will also have the capability to use any voice carrier for inbound and outbound voice calls across the globe.
This level of flexibility enhances the productivity of your staff by providing them with a sophisticated platform that empowers them through all aspects of their daily tasks.
Simplified Remote Integration
It’s increasingly common in modern companies for workers to spend at least a portion of their working week at home or a remote location. Depending on your company, you may require some of your workers to work remotely. Direct routing provides a solution to the common communication problems that arise from this practice.
Because the network is geo-redundant, members of your company will experience a seamless transition from the office environment to their remote location.
Regardless of their Internet service provider, they will have HD voice and video capabilities and will continue to experience streamlined collaboration with colleagues.
Businesses around the world are already using Microsoft Teams to replace aging phone systems. Consolidating the Teams system and the telecom system using direct routing saves these businesses a considerable amount of money every year.
In fact, recent studies indicate that the ROI on Microsoft Teams adoption is a staggering 832%.

Why Make the Switch to Direct Routing with Microsoft Teams?

So, can you use Teams without trunking?
Without a direct routing service, you will miss out on advanced phone functionality. Information workers save 4 hours per week from improved collaboration with Microsoft Teams. By further advancing your Team platform’s functionality, and enabling calling to landline and mobile phones, you will preserve these workers’ time.
