Businesses can use the enriched Teams platform as a phone system because of technology; ‘Direct Routing’
Direct Routing connects Microsoft Teams to the traditional phone network (PSTN). It allows businesses to make, receive and transfer calls to and from Teams like a traditional PBX system, but without the need of having a hosted telephone application or on-premise system.

Direct Routing works by connecting Microsoft Teams to the PSTN by using a Session Border Controller and SIP Trunks.
A Session Border Controller is essentially a firewall. They’re used as a border between different networks to make sure data is transferred correctly. They also provide a layer of security and protection from attacks. We host a Microsoft-Certified SBC which is connected to our SIP Trunks allowing users to make and receive calls using Microsoft Teams. Voiceflex is manufacture approved by all telephone applications sold in the UK, the difference with Direct Routing is, no carrier is approved by Microsoft, it’s the SBC which needs to be approved by Microsoft.
A SIP Trunk connects your telephony application to the PSTN network. It is a facility provided by Voiceflex since 2005 that allows the routing of telephone calls an Internet connection rather than using an ISDN line, which provides more flexibility, is more effecient and more cost-effective.
