Tech connects Skype users with non-Skype users - earns Microsoft certification

03 Aug 2017

Pexip’s Infinity Fusion product is now certified by Microsoft as a video interoperability solution for Skype for Business Server today.

The platform is certified for on-premises Skype for Business Server 2015 deployments.

Founded in 2012, Pexip provides video-based communications and collaboration tools. The company’s customers include Vodafone, The US Department of Veterans Affairs, Western Union, Statoil, and Arup.

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.

“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.

Andrew Bybee, Principal GPM, Skype for Business, Microsoft, comments, “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.”

The software is designed for all sizes of businesses and is able to scale and accommodate any number of users in any number of locations.

It can be deployed to run completely on-premises, in a cloud such as Microsoft Azure, or in a combination of the two.

Nick Seagrave, CTO at Modality Systems, comments “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 was named Microsoft 2016 Communications Partner of the Year.

Last year, Pexip won Frost & Sullivan’s Global Video Conferencing Technology Innovation Award. Pexip operates globally and has offices in Oslo, London, Sydney, and New York.
