As you are probably some countries have implemented a regulatory framework that prohibits customers implementing toll bypass within their own telephony environments. In this blog I am going to share a short 5 minute video that introduces Locations Based Routing (LBR), which is a technology that can be used in this type of deployment scenario.
Strong Warning: It is the responsibility of the Microsoft Partner and/or Customer to take counsel to ensure any given LBR implementation meets the legal requirements of the country it is being deployed in.
As mentioned in the video, the lab Direct Routing implementation used non-media bypass. In production scenarios it is very likely a media bypass probably with Local Media Optimisation (LMO) would be configured. I’ve previously posted a blog about LMO here.
