Our support for the Telepresence Interoperability Protocol (TIP) on Polycom endpoints and infrastructure opens new possibilities for customers to join calls with non-standard Cisco telepresence systems.

Benefits of Polycom's support of Telepresence Interoperability Protocol (TIP):

  • Affordable interoperability – Polycom reduces your costs and complexity by eliminating the need for gateways and ongoing license fees
  • Ease of use – Deploy Polycom RMX universal collaboration server and you can connect non-standard TIP systems to multiparty calls–simply dial into a video conference virtual meeting room
  • Reliable, enterprise-quality collaboration – Polycom's virtualization management capabilities (Polycom DMA 7000) efficiently distribute your calls across massively scaled networks. Meanwhile, auto-failover protections ensure your video services remain available even if servers go down
  • Investment Protection – Add standards-based Polycom video solutions that work seamlessly with your existing equipment

“This is a great win for anyone using video collaboration. Our support for TIP is freeing users of non-standard Cisco TelePresence® by allowing them to connect to millions of other standards-based video systems that are deployed worldwide”
