Saving Money Through Microsoft Teams Direct Routing
While using Microsoft Teams in the future, there may be calls that you need to make outside of your organization. Since these outside contacts aren’t in your Teams setup, it’s more difficult and costly to call them, leading to a bigger hassle and cost than may seem necessary. However, with the help of Microsoft Teams Direct Routing and Affiliated Communications, anything is possible.
Microsoft Teams Direct Routing Through Dial Tone
Understanding how to save money starts with understanding the system. Microsoft Phone System provides all the calling features and business phone systems you need in one convenient service.
Microsoft Phone System Direct Routing is an extension of this service, allowing you to connect to a supported number through Microsoft Teams. Direct Routing connects your Teams client to any outside Session Border Controller (SBC), giving you access to a host of call options that can be made through either Teams or Skype for Business.

Make External Calls With Microsoft Teams
Through Teams, a dial tone system supports a Microsoft Calling Plan, which allows you to make and receive calls through Microsoft Teams. Using the dial-in number provided by Microsoft Audio Conferencing, you can make external calls to any listed client, provided they can respond. Teams users have a fast and easy way to get ahold of clients, business partners, and more with the simplicity of Direct Routing. Having the right dial tone integration with Microsoft Teams makes the services run smoother and ensures a smooth performance.
Make sure you have a plan for deploying Direct Routing if it isn’t already a part of your services. There are many different infrastructure needs and licensing requirements to make the service work effectively. You also need a reliable SBC connection to make external calls, so double check that you meet all the requirements.
Microsoft Teams Pricing
Microsoft routes you through a dial tone piece for $12 domestic and $24 international per call. This can add up over time and make for a costly investment, but Microsoft isn’t the only company that can support your communication needs and route your dial tone. Affiliated Communications provides Direct Routing services through our systems for half the price while still providing the expert solutions you would receive from Microsoft. We support you every step of the way, helping you go over your business’s infrastructure needs, setting up Direct Routing, and managing the ongoing services month to month. Whether you need Microsoft Teams integration or SIP Trunk assistance, you’ll find everything you need with Affiliated Communications.
