Q&A

What is the difference between Direct Routing and Direct Routing as a Service ?

  • Direct Routing requires the enterprise to manage an on-premise or a cloud Session Border Controller (SBC) and associated routing themselves. With Kandy  Direct Routing as a Service, everything is managed in the cloud by Kandy for the Service Provider on behalf of the enterprise.

How do users make external calls?

  • It’s seamless to the enterprise user. Simply select the Calls tab in Teams and enter one or more phone numbers on the dialpad. Users can call and collaborate over a highly secure, global, business-quality voice connection to the public switched telephone network (PSTN) as well as to other on-line Teams users.

Does the Service Provider or Enterprise IT teams need to buy equipment?

  • We host and maintain all the equipment for you, including the Microsoft certified session border controllers (SBCs), and integrate Teams into your existing network and legacy infrastructure.

Can the Enterprise keep their existing phone numbers?

  • Yes, we can port their numbers. We can also provide new telephone numbers if they like.
