Polycom Solutions By UC Environment — Cisco


Jabber vs. Lync decision point? Need a better open-SIP conference phone for your meeting room? Need to video enable a room with automated speaker tracking at a more affordable price point? Want to keep your future options open? Polycom can help.

It's a world of mixed technologies and many vendors. You want solutions that free you from the constraints that proprietary technologies impose. Polycom is committed to open-standards-based interoperability across all the elements that make up a communications environment—including multiple products, vendors, networks, and connection protocols.

"Enterprises need to ensure they use open and interoperable protocols between network building blocks to ensure that they can achieve a high degree of functionality while preserving or migrating their existing investments. By leveraging multivendor networks rather than a single-vendor approach, enterprises can improve network capabilities while significantly reducing costs and simplifying network complexity."

– Mark Fabbi, Vice President, Distinguished Analyst, Gartner, Inc.


The Polycom RealPresence Platform is the most comprehensive software infrastructure for universal video collaboration. It gives you more choices than you have with any proprietary solution. Don't make your most important collaboration decisions based on history and short-term offers. Make an educated decision. Schedule a visit to a Polycom Experience Center, see the Polycom solutions in person, and have a meaningful discussion about your future collaboration plans. We'll help you examine the total costs involved in your solution decision and realize just how much a Polycom solution can save you.
