Why Unified Communications Makes Sense Now

Businesses that have been cautiously waiting and watching have yet another good reason to enter the rewarding world of Unified Communications (UC).

Earlier this month, Polycom, a noted partner of AVI-SPL, announced it is developing standards-based H.264 Scalable Video Coding (SVC) technology for both current and emerging UC technologies.

What does that mean for you and your business?  To put it simply, you can invest in UC without worrying that your infrastructure will suddenly become outdated. More to the point, you can continue to reap the benefits of UC that make it so attractive to companies like yours – its user-friendly integration of real-time communication services, including presence, email, instant messaging and video conferencing. Companies will also profit from SVC’s ability to deliver high-quality video and audio at any bandwidth.

Because of SVC’s interoperability and backward compatibility, companies can protect the value of their current and future UC investments, an advantage that is especially important for small businesses that must be cautious with their budgets.

Polycom Announces Expansion of UC

Today, Polycom announced plans to expand video communications solutions to the masses through its new product and service offerings specifically for mobile users, small and medium businesses (SMB), and consumers (who, up ’til now, had all been relatively left out of the video communications market).

This announcement is based on Polycom’s new vision of “Unified Communications Everywhere” and its plan to open video communications to everyone on any device.

John Vitale, our director of product management for Video & UC commented on the announcement: “I like what I’m reading in Polycom’s announcements. To me, this is saying Polycom is expanding its  product and technology reach beyond the enterprise market and is looking to position itself as a formidable player with Service Provider grade solutions, strengthening its relationship with Microsoft and addressing the ever growing mobile device market needs. With Smartphones dominating 50%+ of the market and still growing, and the constant improvements in 3G and 4G wireless networks, high-end applications like video calling are becoming more desirable and something that mobile users will eventually expect to be on their mobile phone.”
