Cisco and Microsoft announce an alliance to simplify interoperability between Cisco Webex, Telepresence Endpoints and IP telephony with Microsoft Teams.
Cisco Webex and Microsoft Teams integration
See how easy it is to join a Microsoft Teams meeting from a Webex video device. Cisco Webex and Microsoft Teams integration:
As a result of the CISCO strategy of these last years of standardization and interoperability among different manufacturers, this alliance emerges.
The announcement contemplates two interoperability scenarios between Cisco Webex Devices and MS Teams Meetings:
Video Interoperability in the Cloud (CVI)
Allows Cisco Webex devices to connect to Microsoft Teams meeting services. Cisco Webex will present an interoperability solution that will be certified as a Microsoft Cloud Video Interop (CVI) solution. This will allow Cisco Webex and third-party SIP devices to join Microsoft Teams meetings with a simple and intuitive interoperability experience.
All this will benefit customers who have requested that Cisco and Microsoft provide an interoperability solution to allow their Cisco video devices to join Microsoft team meetings in a smooth manner.
Direct access from Meetings video devices, both from Webex and Microsoft
Cisco and Microsoft are working together on a new approach that allows room devices to connect to third-party meeting services through integrated web technologies.
Therefore, Cisco and Microsoft will enable a direct linking capability from their videoconferencing devices to the Webex Meetings and Microsoft Teams meeting services.
This capability will be compatible with the latest generations of Cisco Webex Rooms and Microsoft Teams Rooms devices.
Intended for early 2020.
