Dear community, as Skype for Business will be replaced by Teams I was wondering how I can video call into Zoom / Webex / BlueJeans / StarLeaf meetings?
Currently I can dial into those meetings by using firstname.lastname@example.org or similar SIP addresses. However, this is not possible with Teams. How will this work in future?
I tried all the third party conference bridge providers, which are recommended by Microsoft, however they tell me that there is no solution for this problem. They are only there such that, the third parties can call into Teams meetings.
This is especially important in regard to Teams rooms systems and Surface Hubs. Any advice is appreciated!

Hi @Kiril Valev
Use a third party for video conferencing interop. See here -
Hope this answers your question!

You are correct you can't from Teams call into a meeting hosted by Webex, Zoom or others. And I'm not sure that you will be able to since all of these platforms offers a web client for meetings and that will be better for users. When you are using the CVI it will add some extra information in the invite that allows other systems to join Teams meeting, not the other way.
For Microsoft Teams Rooms systems there will come and update that will allow you to join Cisco Webex and Zoom meetings from these devices, but it will not use the Teams software builtin to the device, it will instead use the Webex and Zoom web applications.
Cisco is one of the new partners to Microsoft that announced that they will release a Cloud Video Interop gateway, not sure exactly how or when. But this might allow you to join Webex meetings from the Teams client, but I doubt it.

Hi, unfortunately you can't use Pexip or the other CVI providers to join a Webex or Zoom meeting from Teams client. Cloud Video Interop allows other video systems like Cisco connect to Teams meetings.
You will be able to join Webex and Zoom meetings from Microsoft Teams Rooms in a later update, but that is not available yet and it is only from meeting room devices not from the Teams application.
And the price for this CVI's is high if you don't use the functions, but many customers say that it is worth the price since they can continue use their investment on old conference room devices. And external people that you invite will also be able to join Teams meetings with other devices than Teams certified devices.

Microsoft Teams Room systems will get that update so that they can join Webex and Zoom meetings, unclear when. MTR is software from Microsoft and hardware from their partners.
Check out the systems here:
It will look like this when the system is updated.

Reviving a slightly old thread, but interestingly this is possible.
It’s not the slickest user experience and not something I would necessarily recommend. Still, interestingly you can dial this SfB SIP URI from Microsoft Teams to join the Zoom or Webex or another platform meeting.
You are probably better joining with the native client for those platforms.
This works via federation, so you need to be in Teams Only mode (which allowed federation) and have federation enabled. Unfortunately, most Teams users won’t know what “mode” they are in.
Here are the details

@Linus Cansby This update can't get here quickly enough. It would solve so many problems at our office.

You can actually join a Zoom meeting from a Teams Room now. Tested it last week ago for a 3 hour meeting. The Zoom account must enable Skype integration on their end. Once that is done follow these steps on the Room System to join a meeting:
On the Team Room System:
Click “New meeting”
Click “Enter URI”
Make sure to choose that address if it shows you more than one listing.
After it connects:
Click the Dial Pad at the top of the screen
Type %zoommeetingpassword% followed by #
You should be connected and waiting in the lobby. You may need to turn on the camera and microphone on the Teams Room system if they appear muted.
