Polycom Enhances VSX Line

Polycom has enhanced its VSX series of video conferencing endpoints. VSX Release 8.7 software adds new capabilities including simplified use in mixed networks (H.323 and SIP switching), quality of service (QoS) enhancements, support for gatekeeper redundancy for mission critical video applications, enhanced remote management, and additional language support.

“The Polycom VSX series is a critical collaboration tool for thousands of organisations around the globe and across a variety of industries,” said Joe Sigrist, senior vice president and general manager, Video Solutions Group, Polycom. “While high definition video and telepresence are emerging and receiving a lot of attention, the reality is customers will migrate to these platforms over time while continuing to operate in mixed video endpoint environments. The VSX products remain the most widely used and are the leading endpoints in their class in terms of quality, features, performance and overall value to customers.”

VSX 8.7 supports Polycom’s ongoing integration efforts with strategic alliance partners to make video conferencing a seamless part of leading unified collaboration environments. VSX 8.7 features integration support for the Avaya Video Telephony Solution, Polycom Unified Collaboration for IBM Lotus Sametime and Lotus Notes, and Polycom Unified Collaboration for Microsoft LCS 2005.
