Polycom announces room telepresence solution fully integrated with Microsoft Lync
Polycom, Inc. has announced the Polycom CX7000 Unified Collaboration System, the first room video telepresence solution custom-built for full integration with Microsoft Lync.

The solution takes the Lync experience customers are familiar with on their desktops and recreates it in the conference room to provide a superior level of business collaboration and productivity for room telepresence. This is another step in the strategic alliance between Polycom and Microsoft Corp. to deliver enterprise-grade UC solutions.

The Polycom CX7000 solution (codenamed “Rally”) is specifically designed with tight integration between the Polycom and Microsoft solutions, offering customers an intuitive interface, simplified UC experience, and more seamless telepresence.

The solution offers all the Lync features customers want (presence, IM, online meetings, content collaboration) with Polycom’s industry-leading room video collaboration solutions in a single plug-and-play system. Polycom has raised the bar for UC with Lync through real-time, group document collaboration over video which no other standard-based system enables today.

“The power of UC is to eliminate barriers to teamwork and bring people face-to-face. Polycom and Microsoft share a passion for delivering easy-to-use UC solutions that transform businesses into highly collaborative environments,” said Andrew Miller, president and CEO, Polycom. “The new Polycom CX7000 room telepresence solution, custom-built to integrate with Microsoft Lync, takes the seamless, highly intuitive experience to a new level by enabling customers to connect and collaborate how, when, and where they want. Expect more of the same as Polycom continues to work with Microsoft to accelerate UC adoption.”

“Polycom is a strategic UC ally for Microsoft. The custom-built Polycom CX7000 system has been specifically designed for full integration with Lync. It offers a compelling and intuitive collaboration experience that bridges UC and enables businesses to be more productive,” said Kirk Gregersen, senior director, Microsoft Lync. “UC has been growing rapidly, and the solutions Polycom is working with Microsoft to deliver will further drive the adoption of telepresence and Lync.”

The CX7000 solution is part of a comprehensive line of CX devices from Polycom that are optimised for use with Microsoft Lync to enable a superior experience. Polycom also offers interoperability with Lync across the Polycom UC Intelligent Core infrastructure, telepresence family (from desktop to group to fully-immersive), and voice endpoints. Polycom is committed to working with Microsoft to ensure Polycom products, including the CX7000 system, are interoperable with Microsoft’s Office 365 cloud offering via Lync Online.
