Transitioning to Microsoft Teams Direct Routing

microsoft teams users can immediately take advantage of nexVortex’s feature-rich SIP Trunking or migrate at their own speed

Microsoft Teams brings a new level of collaboration to Office 365 users (including remote workers) and its rapid growth is no surprise.

Many are considering retiring their premises-based PBX’s or hosted voice service in favor of using the integrated Microsoft phone system in Teams for their business-voice needs.

The good news for those who are ready to make this move is that they can take immediate advantage of the cost savings and advanced features which come with nexVortex SIP and Managed SIP Trunking services since we are certified with the AudioCodes virtual and premises-based gateways and we now support Microsoft Teams Direct Routing.

However, for many others a complete migration of their voice service to Microsoft Teams can be understandably intimidating. For those, nexVortex has intelligent migration strategies which allow Teams users to take advantage of the cost savings and value of our service offerings while they move to a full Teams-based voice solution at their own speed.

See the figure below for one potential migration strategy. Contact us today to learn more.
