Utilizes the Videxio calling platform and Microsoft-certified Pexip Infinity Fusion Gateway to allow users to maintain their native Skype for Business experience when connecting to other devices & services

Oslo, Norway, 25th September 2017

Videxio, a provider of videoconferencing as a service, today announced that it will utilize the Microsoft Azure Cloud as the platform for its new videoconferencing gateway service. The service enables users of dedicated videoconferencing devices to join Skype meetings and ensures seamless cross-platform communication in a Skype for Business environment.

As thousands of companies roll out Skype for Business as their primary collaboration platform, many face the challenge of system interoperability with their existing videoconferencing devices from vendors such as Cisco, Polycom, Huawei, and others. In addition, many companies have seen the need for the connection to happen within the native user experience with which their employees are familiar.

In addition, many companies have seen the need for the connection to happen within the native user experience with which their employees are familiar.

"The volume of Skype for Business users connecting with 3 rd party video systems, browsers and voice participants on the Videxio service has increased by a factor of 10 over the last two years. We see this significant growth as a clear validation of the importance of breaking down interoperability barriers. Our new enhanced offering will allow customers to effectively leverage their existing investments and extend the lifetime of their chosen solutions," commented Tom-Erik Lia, CEO Videxio.

Videxio has worked closely with its technology partner, Pexip, to realize the VTC Gateway as a Service in Microsoft Azure. "The combination of the Pexip gateway, which is Certified for Skype for Business Server, deployed in Azure, and Videxio's calling platform is a winning combination. Together, the solution makes it easy to integrate and consume the previously incompatible technologies. We are excited about this becoming available in the market in the near future," says Åsmund O. Fodstad, Pexip CEO.

The solution will be demoed for the first time at Microsoft Ignite in Orlando from 25 - 29th September (Pexip booth #1001). The solution will work with Skype for Business online as well as on-premise and hybrid Skype for Business environments and will be commercially available in Q4 for video conferencing systems hosted on the Videxio cloud.
