Enable VTC systems to join Microsoft Teams meetings
Pexip video interoperability for Microsoft Teams was demonstrated at Enterprise Connect 2018.
Last year, when Microsoft announced its plan to retire Skype for Business Online and make Microsoft Teams the new platform for intelligent communications in Office 365, many companies started to think about how to integrate Teams into their ways of working.
As Pexip already delivers a Microsoft-certified interoperability solution for Skype for Business, we were pleased to announce that we will also do the same for Microsoft Teams.
At Enterprise Connect in March, as well as at InfoComm in June and Microsoft Inspire in July, we have made multiple public demonstrations of how it works: the join experience from a video system, content sharing, video performance, and more. The video above shows the demonstration as it could be seen both in the Pexip and Microsoft booths at these events.

Skype for Business has firmly established itself within corporate communications and positioned itself alongside traditional video conferencing for business meetings. As we all know, these solutions don’t easily work together, so vendors such as Pexip have helped solve these interoperability challenges. In fact, 9 out of 10 requests that Pexip receive from customers are related to interoperability in one way or another.
Migrate from Skype for Business to Microsoft Teams with video interoperability intact
If you are already familiar with Pexip Infinity video interoperability for Skype for Business and want to benefit from the same functionality for Microsoft Teams, it will be as simple as performing an upgrade and applying appropriate licensing keys when it becomes available. Skype for Business and Microsoft Teams can run in parallel on the Pexip platform, so you won’t have to worry about multiple Pexip deployments in addition to your migration plans from Skype to Teams.
