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 collaborated with Microsoft in the certification of the latest version of Infinity Fusion, which features a gateway mode allowing VTCs to participate directly in Skype conferences. Importantly, Fusion retains the native end-user experience, eliminating the need for expensive trainings and lowering the cost of implementation and management. The software is designed for any size organization, and specifically with large companies and enterprises in mind, and is able to scale and accommodate any number of users in any number of locations. Pexip Infinity Fusion is certified for on-premises Skype for Business Server 2015 deployments.
“Pexip is being used by some of the world’s largest companies to provide cross-technology video interoperability. The certification and partnership reinforces 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 both deploy and align with customer requirements. We have found it to be performing very well, and look forward to being able to feature it as certified for Skype for Business.” Modality Systems have also been part of the Technology Adoption Program prior to certification.
Pexip Infinity Fusion addresses very specific needs for many Microsoft customers. Key to the certified solution 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 a variety of deployment options, which allow it to scale to a large range of users and locations. It can be deployed to run completely on-premises, in a cloud such as Microsoft Azure, or in a combination of the two. In addition, its existence is completely transparent to the end user – resulting in potentially large 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.
