Polycom Keeps VoIP Solutions Waiting

While Polycom has updated its UC Intelligent Core platform to include high definition video and telepresence, the VoIP options on the new product will not be released until the end of the fourth quarter.

The platform has massive capacity with the ability to support 25,000 calls at one time and as many as 75,000 end point devices.

To see the immersive telepresence equipment you can go to Orlando, Florida, for the Infocomm 2011 conference. There the product, which Polycom claims is five times more powerful that its nearest competitor, will be demonstrated.

Although excited customer will have to wait to the end of 2011 for the VoIP installations, the price is already known and they are expected to cost $879.

Another exciting development is Polycom’s cloud-based video content management solutions - the Accordent Capture Station (ACS) v 5.1 and the Accordent Media Management System (AMMS) v 4.5 which make video solutions easy.

It is even possible to integrate HTML5 on the Accordent Capture Station to get rich media on the latest smartphones which can include affordable VoIP calling.

This is all part of the Polycom UC Everywhere campaign to bring the benefits of unified communications to SMBs and SMEs.

John Antanaitis, the VP of product marketing at Polycom, said: "The crux of it is using visual collaboration to allow organizations to make faster decisions and be more productive.”
