Polycom, a global leader in unified communications solutions with industry-leading telepresence, video, voice and infrastructure solutions built on open standards, has had independent research verify its claim of high-definition telepresence at up to 50% less bandwidth with no appreciable loss in call quality.
The research was in response to some competitors' challenge of the company's claims of no-compromise bandwidth reduction.
The company offers its H.264 high profile support across its room telepresence and immersive telepresence solutions and within elements of its UC intelligent core infrastructure platform. The benefits also extend to its telepresence solutions for Microsoft Lync Server 2010, as well as Microsoft Office Communications Server (OCS). The system is supported on its HDX systems that use Microsoft Lync and Office Communications Edge servers between federated partners. This allows an organisation easily and securely to connect via telepresence with customers and partners leveraging Microsoft infrastructure.
