April 22, 2013 05:58 PMFrom Skype and Google Hangouts to integrated HD webcams and inexpensive video conference appliances, consumer technology is pushing aside 'enterprise-grade' products.
January 30, 2013 11:35 AMNews roundup: F5 launches firewall software for its Big-IP platform; Spirent and Fluke release new appliances for testing and management; Extreme adds AVB support to Summit switches; Meetrix and Polycom team up to support IBM Sametime in the cloud.
April 23, 2012 09:00 AMTelephony has certainly done its share of morphing during the last decade, as IP networks have invaded pretty much all communications spaces. The traditional PBX has given way to server-based voice systems, and wireless networking has stretched the paradigm even further. Enter both the cloud and mobile apps, and we have RingCentral’s latest strike in the battle for ever-more-powerful business communications.
April 03, 2012 09:00 AMBlue Jeans Network, which offers videoconferencing in the cloud, has introduced a new pricing model targeted as a direct broadside to expensive systems from vendors such as Cisco Systems and Polycom. It will now offer its service at a rate of $299 per port, per month, which should be dramatically less expensive that those competitors that sell customers a multipoint control unit (MCU) to install and maintain on the customers’ premises. Blue Jeans calls this strategy an “MCU Killer.”
March 27, 2012 01:00 PMHP and Polycom are taking their partnership to a new level, combining HP’s networking technology and Polycom’s videoconferencing products to deliver Microsoft’s Lync unified communications platform to the enterprise. An HP representative says that while many Lync licenses have been sold by Microsoft, several of those deployments are on hold because of the complexity of integrating the three elements--complexity that the two partners aim to address.
March 14, 2012 09:27 AMA new study shows that companies are expanding their use of videoconferencing, but many worry that they may not be able to keep up with the network bandwidth demands of the technology. The concerns are documented in a survey that looks at three networking-related issues: video, cloud computing and application management. In the first of a three-part series, Network Computing looks at videoconferencing and the network.
July 11, 2011 02:31 PMVideoconference system vendor Polycom has introduced a new room video telepresence system that comes with the Microsoft Lync unified communications platform built right in. Because the Polycom CX7000 Unified Collaboration System features tight integration with Lync, participants in video meetings will experience the same user interface (UI) they are familiar with when using Lync on their desktop computers, as well as the familiar Polycom UI.
August 10, 2010 03:37 PMPolycom continued to make strategic agreements for its videoconferencing solutions Monday as it announced a partnership with Microsoft to supply standards-based unified communications (UC) solutions covering a wide range of customers, big and small. Partnership will integrate voice, instant messaging, and videoconferencing for large enterprise, government, and SMB customers.
June 07, 2010 11:05 AMVideo conference technology provider Polycom adds to its lineup of HD telepresence systems in a battle for dominance against Cisco Systems, especially in the wake of Cisco's acquisition of Tandberg. Polycom is introducing the OTX 300 Immersive Telepresence product. Telepresence provides a high-end video that aims to duplicate the experience of being in the same room for participants in separate locations. Telepresence systems require dedicated--and expensive--equipment and specially constructed studios.
December 02, 2009 10:00 AMOf all the collaboration methods available to business workers, it's hard to beat face-to-face interaction. Three products from Polycom aim to put videoconferencing capabilities within the reach of small and medium-size businesses, and with video calls that start at 256Kbps, most networks should be able to easily handle the additional traffic. We looked at three systems all designed for IP networks. The HDX 6000 is a high-definition conference-room style video conferencing system. The QDX 6000 is its standard counterpart. We also looked at a product for desktop videoconferencing, the Converged Management Application (CMA) Server and its client component. CMA clients can conference with both the HDX and QDX 6000.
