The Pexip Google Meet interoperability solution allows third-party video conferencing devices and systems to natively join Meet calls. It extends the use of Meet across organizations that have multiple video meeting solutions from vendors such as Cisco and Polycom, or even Skype for Business.
Who's it for?
Pexip video interoperability is perfect for organizations that:
→ Use Google Workspace and Meet as their productivity and collaboration platforms
→ Have mixed communication environments that need to connect to Google Meet
→ Have standards-based video conferencing environments from vendors such as Cisco, Poly, and others, and want to use these systems to join Meet meetings
→ Are migrating from Microsoft Skype for Business to Meet, and need the two to work with each other
→ Have partners or customers who want to join meetings from Skype for Business, or other video meeting solutions
Works with video conferencing devices
Pexip for Google Meet enables non-Google users to join Meet video calls using a SIP or H.323 video conferencing system, Skype for Business, or non-Google web browsers.
Works with Google Calendar
Schedule or set up meetings exactly the way you are used to. No extra software, no extra steps, no extra buttons to push. Everything happens inside the Google Calendar, and all additional information is added automatically.
Works with Skype for Business
Meeting participants that normally use Skype for Business can simply click the join link and use Skype for Business in the meeting, keeping that client’s native user experience, layout, and content sharing abilities.

Pexip Enterprise Room Connector
Simplify video collaboration for any meeting room & maximize your existing hardware infrastructure
Many organizations use Google Meet whilst still wanting to manage and utilize their professional meeting room systems (SIP/H.323 devices).
It can be difficult for users to understand different workflows for each hardware setup or meeting type. Extend the capabilities of your meeting rooms and simplify the user experience with the Pexip Enterprise Room Connector with Google Meet Interoperability.
Each meeting room bundle provides a full software suite for your existing standards-based meeting-room systems to integrate with Google Meet and includes:
1. Pexip Interoperability for Google Meet
+ Dial into your Google Meet meetings from standards-based video systems (SIP/hH323 devices).
2. Endpoint Subscription (premium plan)
With native call-control and automated phonebook management, plus Skype for Business interoperability as standard. Register and provision your video conferencing systems on the Pexip Service’s dedicated video network with quality assured performance.
+ Manage your organization’s migration to the cloud: if your organization needs to maintain some endpoint devices on your existing internal call-control solution, you have the option to replace the endpoint subscription license with a Trusted Device license. You can then migrate devices onto dedicated endpoint subscriptions with native call-control when you’re ready.
+ Trusted Devices are not registered to the Pexip Service, but are recognized as internal devices when calling into your Google Meet Meetings. They will enter meetings directly, automatically bypassing the lobby page used for guest participants, who require an internal user to admit them into the meeting.
3. One-Touch Join
+ Dial into any video meeting in a single tap, including Google Meet. Learn more about One-Touch Join→
4. Branded meeting screens
+ Include your logo and choice of background on the in-call meeting screens.
5. Domain hosting
Room bundles are offered as a SaaS solution and deployed as part of the Pexip Service. If your organization prefers a self-hosted deployment, Pexip Infinity’s software licensing options can be used to create meeting room bundles with the same Google interoperability solutions.
Easy to join
It’s easy for external users to join Google Meet calls. All third-party dial-in instructions are provided by default.
And, when a video conferencing system or Skype for Business client is on a trusted domain, it can even automatically bypass the lobby.
As a cloud service
It is easy to get going with Pexip for Google Meet as a service. Simply find out how many concurrent connections you will need (how many systems will be joining Meet meetings at the same time) and sign up for the service. Pexip
.. or self-hostedFor complex and large deployments, you can deploy and run Pexip entirely on-premises or in your own instance on Google Cloud Platform (GCP) - or any other cloud for that matter.
Works with Google calendar
Google Workspace users schedule or set up meetings exactly the way they are used to. No extra software, no extra steps, no extra buttons to push. Everything happens inside the Google calendar, and all needed information is added automatically.
Works with Google Meet hardware kits
Google Meet hardware kits are native Meet solutions and don’t need Pexip to join meetings. However, with Pexip, users can use hardware kits to meet with others using standards-based video conferencing systems.
Works with Google Jamboard
As with the Meet hardware kit, the Google Jamboard is a native Meet meeting solution. However, with Pexip in the mix, you can use the Jamboard to meet and share content with anybody else in the same meeting. And Jamboard works great as a huddle room video endpoint, too.
Supports a wide range of devicesProvides SIP/H.323 and Skype for Business video interoperability into Google Meet and enables most non-Google solutions to join Meet meetings.
