Polycom RealPresence with TIP support

Thursday, 08 December, 2011

A software update to the Polycom RealPresence Platform allows customers using Polycom and other standards-based video collaboration solutions to join calls with non-standard Cisco TelePresence Systems and vice versa.

This update also further extends interoperability across Microsoft and IBM UC environments. The interoperability with Cisco systems is made possible by support for the Telepresence Interoperability Protocol (TIP), developed by Cisco.

This latest release includes full native TIP support for video calls and extended support for H.323 and SIP networks, which allows organisations to access shared UC environments such as IBM Sametime and Microsoft Lync, even if participants are using legacy systems. By deploying the Polycom RMX universal collaboration server within the platform, organisations can connect non-standard TIP systems to multiparty calls simply by dialling into a videoconference virtual meeting room.

Virtualisation management capabilities (Polycom DMA 7000) efficiently distribute calls across massively scaled networks, while auto failover protections ensure that services remain available even if servers go down.

The update is available to customers with active service contracts. TIP interoperability support in software is offered at no cost to customers with  RealPresence Experience (RPX) Series and Open Telepresence Experience (OTX) immersive telepresence systems and RMX solutions. TIP is available on the HDX series for a per licence cost.
