Polycom Announces Cloud Strategy

Polycom has detailed its strategy to enable service providers (SPs) to offer cloud-delivered, Video-as-a-Service (VaaS) solutions to its customers.

As part of the announcement, Polycom is unveiling Polycom RealPresence Cloud, a wholesale, carrier-ready offering to enable SPs to quickly bring to market VaaS offerings.

RealPresence Cloud solutions are designed specifically for SPs to equip them with the carrier-grade infrastructure, endpoints and services they need to offer businesses of all sizes subscription-based solutions for video collaboration. The new offering for SPs is designed to accelerate the penetration and adoption of Polycom video collaboration solutions among small to medium sized businesses (SMBs) and enterprises who want either a hybrid solution of both premises-based video collaboration solutions and video on demand, or a pure VaaS solution.
