Good news for Pexip, their Infinity Fusion product, which features a gateway mode allowing VTCs to participate directly in Skype conferences is now officially certified by Microsoft.

The Skype for Business Certification Program is designed to offer Microsoft customers badges or designations as indicators of third party solutions that demonstrate a high-quality experience and compatibility when used with Skype for Business.

There are two levels of designation to indicate the level of quality of the solution.

  1. Certified for Skype for BusinessCertified for Skype for Business is the designation for products that meet the highest specifications outlined in the program. Following successful completion and pass of the specifications, products will be deemed Certified for Skype for Business.
  2. Works with Skype for BusinessWorks with Skype for Business is the designation for products that meet the minimum specifications outlined in the program. Following successful completion and pass of the specifications, products will be deemed Works with Skype for Business.

At Modality, we’ve deployed Pexip to a number of customers and it’s worked well. It can be deployed on-premises on server(s) or Azure/AWS, or a combination of the two.
