Polycom announced two new interoperable solutions with HP and Microsoft that combine Polycom RealPresence video solutions, HP Networking technology and services, and Microsoft Lync with joint reference architectures.
Together, they make it easier to deliver, scale and manage UC environments that keep employees connected via video, voice and other communications apps from anywhere. The solutions bring together the key elements of UC and video collaboration, from the networking and UC platform to high-quality video infrastructure and systems, enabling businesses to reduce total cost of ownership and allowing end users to participate in face-to-face meetings anytime, across any environment.
The solutions reduce the time and resources required to create and maintain an end-to-end UC and video collaboration environment. By leveraging open-standards to ensure interoperability, the solutions work with existing infrastructure, reduce complexity, and simplify migration of existing systems and endpoints to the new enterprise solution.
The combined solutions simplify purchasing and provide a best-of-breed approach to deliver high-quality enterprise video collaboration.
