|Teams Connector enhancements: improvements to the Teams-like layout
Pexip's Cloud Video Interop (CVI) integration with Microsoft Teams has been enhanced:
|New Microsoft Teams SIP Guest Join meeting type for One-Touch Join||
When configuring One-Touch Join meeting processing rules, there is a new Microsoft Teams SIP Guest Join option for the meeting type. This replaces the need to use a custom rule when enabling the "SIP Guest Join" feature for Teams.
Note that the format of invitations to cloud-based or externally-managed meetings can often change. Using the latest versions of Pexip Infinity and the dedicated OTJ meeting types will ensure best future compatibility.
|Enabling SIP Guest Join|
|Join instructions page hosted on Conferencing Nodes||Conferencing Nodes can now generate a webpage where the full set of join instructions for a specific VMR is shown. These join instructions can optionally include a QR code, which when scanned by a device with a supported Connect app installed (such as Pexip Connect for RealWear or the Connect mobile app) will open the meeting directly in the app.||Links to a join instructions page|
|Customizable display names for Epic telehealth appointments||You can now customize the provider and patient display names for Epic telehealth appointments via the new Template for provider display names and Template for patient display names options when configuring an Epic telehealth profile.||Configuring Pexip Infinity to integrate with Epic telehealth|
|Administrative improvements (site banner, search, configurable automatic backups)||
This release contains the following administrative improvements:
||Management web interface configuration|
||Using the Pexip Infinity Administrator interface|
||Enabling automatic backups|
|Show name labels||Host participants now have the option to enable and disable name labels for all participant in the meeting.||Show name labels|
|Alternative disconnect destination||Administrators can now manually customize a destination to send participants upon disconnecting from a meeting (as an alternative to returning them to the home page).||disconnectDestination|
|Additional background images||
Administrators can now specify, via manual customization, multiple background images for users to select from.
Note that this replaces the bgImageUrl option — for more information, see Changes in functionality below.
|Guests shown PIN entry keypad||Guest participants who join a meeting without a Host are offered a DTMF keypad, so that they can enter the Host PIN.||Enter the Host PIN|
|Send DTMF tones to external devices / conferences||Participants in a gateway call can now send DTMF tones to the meeting or device they are connected to.||Send DTMF tones to an external conference or device|
|Send DTMF tones to participants||Host participants in a Virtual Meeting Room or Virtual Auditorium can now send DTMF tones to a selected participant.||Send DTMF tones to a participant|
|Application tab title||Administrators can now manually customize the title that appears on the web app browser tab.||appTitle|
|Local mute state propagated to server||When a user mutes or unmutes themselves, their mute state will be updated on Pexip Infinity.|
|App and plugin API versions shown||The app version and plugin API version are now available from within the app's.|
|Changes in functionality|
|Default background images||
||Participant background replacement images|
There are no significant new features in Connect Webapp2 in Pexip Infinity version 32.
|TLS certificates with legacy signature algorithms||Pexip Infinity v32 and later require TLS certificates with SHA256 or later signature algorithms. Certificates using legacy algorithms such as SHA1 and MD5 must be removed from the system before upgrade.|
TLSv1.3 is now enabled on all services
TLSv1.3 is now enabled on all services by default (and cannot be disabled).
Deployments running in FIPS compliance mode
Pexip Infinity v32 and later running with FIPS cryptography enabled now has FIPS 140-3 compliance and requires RSA private keys that comply with SP800-56b. Any keys generated by earlier Pexip Infinity versions running with FIPS cryptography enabled are already compliant. The upgrade process will endeavor to fix any non-compliant keys installed on the system, but there is a small subset of possible keys that cannot be fixed (the page on the Administrator interface will display a status of "Private key is unusable" for any such key, and those keys will then need to be replaced). Administrators uploading their own keying material must ensure compliance with SP800-56b (any non-compliant keys will be rejected).
|Deploying Pexip Infinity in a secure mode of operation|
|Security wizard removal of X-Frame-Options setting, and an additional default CSP frame-ancestors directive||
The X-Frame-Options setting has been removed from the security wizard. The CSP frame-ancestors directive supersedes the X-Frame-Options setting and the system now calculates the X-Frame-Options value based on the configured CSP ().
The default CSP for new installations now includes frame-ancestors 'self'.
On upgrade to version 32, frame-ancestors 'self' will be automatically added to the existing CSP unless there is an existing frame-ancestors directive.
|About global settings|
|Install wizard new email address option||
When running the installation wizard, if Enable incident reporting is selected, administrators are now required to provide a contact email address. (This address can be changed at any point after installation via .)
The address will be used by Pexip Support when following up on any incident reports received from your deployment.
|Re-running the installation wizard|
|Voice Focus performance improvements||
Voice Focus (a voice activity feature that distinguishes between actual speech and background noise) has improved accuracy and better performance. When enabled it now uses the equivalent of an extra 4 audio connections per participant (previously an extra 6).
|Voice activity features|
|Concurrent call licenses statistics no longer split by location||The usage statistics showing the maximum number of concurrent call licenses used per day is now a single daily total, and is no longer split by location.||Viewing usage statistics|
|Hardware resource usage for presentations in Teams calls||To improve the accuracy of the platform's resource management, extra hardware resources are now accounted for in a gateway call to a Microsoft Teams meeting. If a VTC participant presents content, additional resources are allocated on the Teams backplane while the presentation is in progress.||Hardware resource allocation rules|
Infinity Connect legacy webapp
The original "legacy" version of the infinity Connect web app, "Webapp1", is no longer actively developed or maintained and has been removed from the default installation of Pexip Infinity.
If you still require access to this version, please contact your Pexip authorized support representative.
|About Connect web app versions|
|Pexip Smart Scale||
Pexip Smart Scale is being deprecated from Pexip Infinity version 32. Customers currently using this feature should contact your Pexip authorized support representative for information about a replacement offering.
|Enabling Pexip Smart Scale|
|Remove support for ESXi 6.5||Support for ESXi 6.5 will be removed in a future release. When this occurs, Pexip will support VMware installation on ESXi 6.7 and 7.0 only.||Configuring VMware for Pexip Infinity|
|Remove support for Xen||Support for Xen hypervisors will be removed in version 33 of Pexip Infinity.|
|Management API rate limiting||In version 33 the rate limit of requests to the management API will be reduced from the current (version 32) limit of 10,000 requests every 60 seconds to 1000 requests every 60 seconds.|
