Cisco certified for Microsoft Teams Cloud Video Interop


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.
