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.

@codonnell Here's the detail around Direct Routing: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/MicrosoftTeams/direct-routing-plan

I hope that helps.

@codonnell For Microsoft Direct Routing, check out SIPPIO, global service footprint covering 60 countries, 10-minute user activation, coupled with the flexibility to scale, embedded billing and a choice of inclusive or consumption-based subscriptions.

- SIPPIO Direct Routing as a service is an end-to-end cloud service that offers a global footprint and the flexibility to customize calling capabilities. Voice-enabling Microsoft Teams with SIPPIO Direct Routing provides flexibility and scale with pay-as-you-go or consumption-based subscriptions and user experiences devoid of friction. (Informative, explanatory blog)

 

** The SIPPIO Voice Panel automates tenant provisioning and user onboarding so activating new revenue-producing clients takes approximately 10 minutes. Instead of waiting months for complex deployments and the first trickle of sales, your accounts begin producing almost immediately.

 

The company works with partners including AudioCodes, Ingram Micro, and other global solutions providers/MSPs/Integrators/channel partners.
