Polycom and BT collaborate on end-to-end suite for MCS


Polycom and BT have been working together on Unified Communications (UC) products for a little while now and at the Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference they've announced a range of new solutions.

The companies are building on BT's 'UC Ready' networked IT, voice and professional services for Microsoft UC. As we mentioned earlier this week, Polycom has been showing off its CX IP phones that integrate with Microsoft Communications Server "14." The companies are offering a holistic set of UC products and services to deliver integrated applications, networks and systems to assure customers that Microsoft and Polycom technologies on the BT network will be deployed and managed effeciently.

"Microsoft is pleased to see two of our leading UC partners come together to offer a broad and innovative set of UC services and solutions," said Yancey Smith, Director of Product Management, Communications Server for Microsoft in a release. "Large enterprise customers need to approach UC solutions from a wide vantage point which includes network, endpoint devices, professional services, security and other important pivots. Customers can turn to BT and Polycom, working with Microsoft, for solutions which will maximize the impact that UC can deliver to the business."
