Pexip’s Infinity Fusion product has been certified by Microsoft as a video interoperability solution for Skype for Business Server. The 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 training and lowering the cost of implementation and management. The software is designed for any size organisation and is able to scale and accommodate any number of users in any number of locations.
“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,” said Åsmund Fodstad, Pexip’s 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 organisations to achieve more,” added Andrew Bybee, Microsoft’s principal group programme manager for Skype for Business.
The Pexip Infinity Fusion addresses very specific needs for 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 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.
“We have worked with Pexip on numerous projects, and Infinity Fusion continues to impress,” said Nick Seagrave, CTO at Modality Systems. “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.”
