Pexip to offer certified Microsoft Teams interop for U.S. Department of Defense

On the 7th of June, Pexip announced that its Microsoft Teams Cloud Video Interop (CVI) solution is available in Microsoft Azure Government Community Cloud at Impact Level 5  (IL5) for the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD). Most video teleconferencing (VTC) systems currently in use by the DoD today do not natively interoperate with DoD Teams service, causing communication challenges and inefficient collaboration when users attempt to join DoD Teams meetings.

“Pexip is the only Microsoft-certified Cloud Video Interop (CVI) solution that is able to support the DoD with interoperability between their deployed video conferencing systems and Teams,” says Peter McCarthy, VP Americas Public Sector, Pexip.

“By using Pexip CVI, the DoD can continue using existing video conferencing infrastructure, avoiding costly hardware replacement. We offer a flexible solution that can meet any new demands or requirements going forward, and our product development is supported by Microsoft engineering teams,” McCarthy adds.
