Polycom recently announced that its UC Intelligent Core System will soon allow interoperability with other collaboration solutions. The news was greeted as a positive development in an industry for which communication between different vendors’ unified communications systems has proved an ongoing quest.
This announcement is good news for any business seeking to add a cost-saving video communications system to its enterprise. Polycom solutions will also be interoperable with the Cisco telepresence systems based on the Telepresence Interoperability Protocol (TIP).
Mike Brandofino, executive vice president of video communications and unified collaboration for AVI-SPL, was enthusiastic about the development, particularly because of the benefit it will have for end users.
“Polycom is definitely going down the right direction in saying it will support TIP,” said Brandofino, “especially since interoperability remains one of the main gating factors to mass adoption of video.
“It is better for the whole industry and customers if the major manufacturers implement whatever standards are required to support interoperability.”
