anynode software Session Border Controller now certified for Microsoft Teams Direct Routing


Late last year I posted that Oracle and anynode were on track to certified for Microsoft Teams Direct Routing, now anynode are officially certified.

Like AudioCodes, anynode is also supported on Azure and in the Azure Marketplace

They are the 4th vendor to be certified, Oracle is still pending.


If you check out the certified list you can see Media Bypass is not yet “certified” for any SBC vendor. We know Media Bypass is in development, I hope to see it available shortly.

For those not familiar with the terminology, “Media Bypass” means that the voice traffic (the media) routes directly between the user endpoint/client to the certified SBC, rather than routing from the user/client to the cloud and then the SBC (so the media “bypasses” the cloud). This is an important feature for scaling and optimising the routing of your Microsoft Teams Direct Routing.
