Polycom detailed its strategy to enable service providers to offer cloud-delivered, video-as-a-service (VaaS) solutions to its customers.

As part of the announcement, Polycom is unveiling Polycom “RealPresence Cloud,” a wholesale, carrier-ready offering to enable service providers to quickly bring to market VaaS offerings.

RealPresence Cloud solutions are designed specifically for service providers to equip them with the carrier-grade infrastructure, endpoints and services they need to offer businesses of all sizes subscription-based solutions for video collaboration. The new offering for service providers is designed to accelerate the penetration and adoption ofPolycom video collaboration solutions among SMBs (small to medium sized businesses) and enterprises who want either a hybrid solution of both premises-based video collaboration solutions and video on demand, or a pureVaaS solution.

Polycom RealPresence Cloud solutions compress the time-to-market and time-to-revenue for service providers to deliver VaaS solutions. Powered by the Polycom RealPresence Platform, the most complete and interoperable solution for universal video collaboration, RealPresence Cloud provides the carrier-grade scalability, reliability, availability and security required for service providers to offer VaaS to SMBs and enterprises. RealPresence Cloud solutions encompass a fully managed multipoint video service that supports a multitude of connectivity options and endpoints supporting the non-standard TIP protocol.

Service providers can leverage Polycom RealPresence Cloud solutions to offer their customers a true business-to business VaaS solution without having to fully integrate and support the core infrastructure on-premises. Wainhouse Research predicted that the five-year compound annual growth rate for the hosted and managed UC market worldwide will reach 30.7 $5 billion in 2015, further expanding Polycom’s total addressable market.
