Pexip software earns Microsoft certification
OSLO, Norway, and NEW YORK, Aug 1, 2017 – Pexip announced its Infinity Fusion product was certified by Microsoft as a video interoperability solution for Skype for Business Server today. Pexip Infinity Fusion allows Skype for Business meetings and calls to be joined by non-Skype users using video teleconferencing.
Pexip Infinity Fusion is certified for on-premises Skype for Business Server 2015 deployments. Pexip collaborated with Microsoft to certify the latest version of Infinity Fusion, which features a gateway mode allowing VTCs to participate directly in Skype conferences.
Pexip designed its software to fit any organization with large companies and enterprises in mind. It can scale and accommodate any number of users in various locations. Importantly, Fusion retains the native end-user experience, eliminating the need for expensive training and lowering the cost of implementation and management.
“Pexip is being used by some of the world’s largest companies to provide cross-technology video interoperability. The certification and partnership reinforce the strength and capabilities of our industry-leading technology,” says Åsmund O. Fodstad, Pexip CEO.
“Pexip is a valued Microsoft partner. We are pleased to see Pexip certify its Infinity Fusion interoperability solution for Skype for Business and extend the Skype communications experience for organizations to achieve more,” said Andrew Bybee, Principal GPM, Skype for Business, Microsoft.
Nick Seagrave, CTO at Modality Systems – Microsoft 2016 Communications Partner of the Year – is equally excited:
“We have worked with Pexip on numerous projects, and Infinity Fusion continues to impress. It is an extremely flexible interoperability solution to deploy and align with customer requirements. We have found it to be performing very well, and look forward to featuring it as certified for Skype for Business.”
Modality Systems have also been part of the Technology Adoption Program before certification.
Pexip Infinity Fusion addresses the particular needs of many Microsoft customers. Key to the certification is interoperability that allows non-Skype users to communicate via video with Skype for Business users.
Beyond the core Skype for Business interoperability that the certification tests, Fusion has various deployment options, allowing it to scale to an extensive range of users and locations.
It can be deployed to run on-premises, in a cloud like Microsoft Azure, or a combination of both. In addition, its existence is entirely transparent to the end user – resulting in potentially significant savings on training, implementation, and management costs.
Pexip Infinity Fusion is certified for use with Skype for Business Server starting from version 15.1, which is available now worldwide. For more information, please visit www.pexip.com.
