SIP (Session Initiation Protocol) trunking is a big part of how Infinitel delivers Direct Routing for Microsoft Teams. But what is SIP trunking?
Basically, it’s the technology that connects your business’s phones to the wider public phone network, using an internet connection rather than traditional analogue phone lines.
Using our very own SIP Trunking for your Direct Routing solution, Infinitel allows you to make Microsoft Teams calls on a global level using an internet connection. Compared to traditional phone lines, SIP Trunking is highly scalable, flexible and affordable.
An SBC (Session Border Controller) is a device purposely built to protect and regulate the calls you make using an internet connection. An SBC protects your connection from attack and regulates your calls to provide great quality of service and efficient routing – improving the quality and safety of your calls.
We are partnered with Ribbon and use their Microsoft-certified SBCs for our Direct Routing. They are one of only a few vendors recognised by Microsoft. This means that our Direct Routing for Microsoft Teams is fully supported by Microsoft itself.
What is Direct Routing for Microsoft Teams?
Direct Routing allows you to make the most of the Microsoft Teams platform for your business communication. It allows you to connect globally and communicate with clients and customers worldwide using Microsoft Teams.
By using Infinitel SIP Trunks to route your calls using an internet connection, our Direct Routing solution is cost-effective, flexible and scalable. It’s all about letting Microsoft Teams become your comprehensive, one-stop business communication tool – saving you time and money, boosting efficiency and streamlining cooperation and collaboration.
How does Direct Routing work exactly?
It all happens on our own Infinitel network. We’ll host Ribbon’s Microsoft-certified SBCs on our network and use our own SIP Trunks to connect your Microsoft Teams account to the rest of the world. This ensures you the peace of mind that your connection is safe and protected, hosted by us.
