Pexip Service has released the 'Trusted Devices' feature to enable unregistered video endpoints to bypass the Teams or Hangouts lobby. This new feature makes joining Teams and Hangouts meetings with standard video endpoints even easier. Previously, only video endpoints registered on the Pexip Service would be allowed to enter such meetings directly, forcing the host to admit unregistered participants manually.
Examples when assigning Trusted Devices is valuable:
1) To support a phased migration to the cloud. For large organizations with hundreds or even thousands of video endpoints, migrating from an on-premise solution to the cloud will likely be done in phases. With Trusted Devices, the whole organization maintains one workflow while the video endpoints are registered on the Pexip Service or the company's call control.
2) To help organizations maintain media traffic internally. Trusted Devices ensure that a company can mix their call control with Pexip Interoperability Service, thereby keeping a large volume of internal data traffic from entering the public Internet.
Trusted Devices have been developed to maintain the security and privacy of your meeting information and data.
