Thanks to my friend Michael LaMontagne for the heads up on this one. Cisco Webex Video Integration for Microsoft Teams is now officially certified as a Cloud Video Interop provider.
Cloud Video Interop (CVI) is the name for Microsoft certified third-party gateway services that allow standards-based room video systems to join Microsoft Teams meetings. They do this by inserting additional “dial in” details to a meeting invite to allow standards-based systems to connect via the CVI providers gateway service. Some will also enable “click to join” on standard room systems.
Without CVI there is no way for standards-based video endpoints to join Microsoft Teams meetings
We first heard about Cisco CVI coming at Ignite 2019 and just before Ignite 2020 it’s here.
