Media Bypass is now available for Microsoft Teams Direct Routing.
Microsoft Teams calling can be connected to SIP trunks using Direct Routing. Media bypass enables you to shorten the path of media traffic and reduce the number of hops in transit for better performance. With media bypass, media is kept between the Session Border Controller (SBC) and the client instead of sending it via the Microsoft Phone System.
The diagrams below illustrate the difference in call flow with and without media bypass.
Without media bypass, when a client makes or receives a call, both signalling and media flow between the SBC, the Microsoft Phone System, and the Teams client, as shown in the following diagram:
But let’s assume that a user is in the same building or network as the SBC. For example, assume a user who is in a building in Frankfurt makes a call to a PSTN user:
Media bypass leverages protocols called Interactive Connectivity Establishment (ICE) on the Teams client and ICE light on the SBC. These protocols enable Direct Routing to use the most direct media path for optimal quality.
