Polycom Adds DECT Wireless Solutions Certified For Cisco Unified Communications Environments Polycom Adds DECT Wireless Solutions Certified For Cisco Unified Communications EnvironmentsPolycom Adds DECT Wireless Solutions Certified For Cisco Unified Communications Environments

29 June 2009

PLEASANTON, Calif. - Jun 29, 2009 : Polycom, Inc. [NASDAQ: PLCM], the global leader in telepresence, video and voice communication solutions, today announced its digital enhanced cordless telephony (DECT) based wireless voice systems have been certified for use with Cisco Unified Communications Manager (UCM) by tekVizion, an independent third-party lab. The solutions certified for use with Cisco UCM include the Polycom KIRK® Wireless Servers (KWS) 6000 and 300 as well as the full portfolio of KIRK handsets. With this interoperability verification, customers using Cisco UCM now have a DECT-based option to mobilize their employees for improved responsiveness and productivity within the workplace.

"Polycom has a rich heritage in delivering high-quality, full-featured, standards-based endpoints to market," said Elka Popova, North American Program Director, Unified Communications, Frost & Sullivan. "By rounding out their telephony portfolio with products that are interoperable with Cisco UC solutions, Polycom enables Cisco customers to deploy best-in-class communications networks that include the familiar, reliable devices for which Polycom is known."

Polycom offers wireless IP DECT solutions to businesses of any size.

* The entry-level KWS 300 is a SIP-based wireless telephony system that is ideal for smaller sized businesses. The KWS300 is a single-cell system that can support up to 12 handsets and four simultaneous calls. A total of six KIRK repeaters can be added to extend the coverage area.
* The KWS6000 is a SIP-based wireless telephony solution that can fulfill the wireless needs of up to more than 4,000 mobile employees. It is a multi-cell solution that is extremely scalable whether an end-user needs radio coverage of a large geographical area or to equip a large number of mobile employees with the flexibility of wireless telephony. It also provides strong investment protection and can grow with the end-user as the business grows and is therefore ideal for medium – and up to very large sized businesses.

Polycom also offers a full range of KIRK wireless handsets that targets carpeted as well as industrial environments with a need for durable and ruggedized handsets. All handsets can be combined in one solution, allowing businesses to meet the individual needs of every employee when choosing the right wireless DECT handset as part of the wireless DECT solution.

"Polycom is committed to delivering best-in-class voice and video communications solutions for Cisco customers," said Sunil Bhalla, senior vice president and general manager, Polycom Voice Communications Solutions. "We recognize that Cisco is a leader in the UC space, and we're delighted to extend our portfolio of offerings to the Cisco UC customer base."

The Polycom DECT-based KIRK solutions join the Polycom VVX™ 1500 C business media phone in the company's portfolio of UC solutions compatible with Cisco Unified UCM. Announced last month, the VVX 1500 C, which is the first business media phone certified for seamless integration with Cisco UCM, combines a personal video conferencing system with a fully featured voice over IP (VoIP) telephone with Polycom HD Voice™ and an open application programming interface (API) for integration with key business applications.
