Microsoft Teams Direct Routing Partners

Occasional Visitor

Looking for some feedback.  I have a global customer that is looking at moving to MS Direct Routing through a partner like Verizon, Orange, NTT or Intrado but they are trying to understand the differences.  Does anyone have any content out there that would be a comparison of what DR Partners can provide, some what like a gartner of DR partners?  Please let me know.

Hi @codonnell 


I don't think there is any specific rating like Gartner Rating for Teams DR Partners. But what you could always look at is which of the provider is providing larger Global Presence as well as look at the provider who can provide you services in the countries like China, India which are more regulated countries. 


In addition also look at which provider is carrying maximum voice around the Globe on their backbone.
