Licensing required for Direct Routing

New Contributor

Hello Mighty Wizards,


I'm configuring Direct Routing for a customer. I've been told that in term of licensing along with the traditional E1 or E3 or E5 now we can use Business lincense too (Basic, Standard or Premium).

Is that true first of all? If the answer is yes do we have details on prices?

Thank you in advance for yor help.

Yes, you can use the add-on Microsoft 365 Business Voice without Calling Plans (long name). Not sure about the price.




For Direct routing you need the Phone System license for each user:- 


This says $8 if you are on E1 or E3. 


If you are on E5 then you already have it.
