Planning & Prerequisites
Deploying Direct Routing
Planning the Business Telephony System
It is important to know the details of Teams Direct Routing before Deployment. Direct Routing allows the customers to interoperate with third party systems like on-premises PBX, Microsoft Phone system and Analogue devices. It further lets you leverage the existing infrastructure which you are using with other service providers. It facilitates users who do not have calling plans in their area. It is important to know the licensing requirements before you get started with direct routing.
Deploying Microsoft Teams Direct Routing with your local provider
The following steps are performed under this phase:
Step 1: Enable Direct Routing
In this step, the connection between Teams admin center and your local provider is created. No configuration at your side, all is fully automated provisioned by your local provider.
Step 2: Enable users for Direct Routing
For this step, you need to first create a user in Microsoft 365 and assign a license. You can create users via admin center. You can then assign the right Microsoft licenses to this user.
Configure Voice Routing Options
You can either configure Teams to route through a voice channel directly to the phone network or configure Teams to connect to existing PBX.
A new or existing phone number can be assigned to a Teams user or an existing PBX extension number can be assigned to a Teams user. This process is automated by your telephony provider.
