Polycom-Meetrix Interoperability Benefits Partners

Polycom has formed a partnership with Meetrix, a cloud enabler and integrator, to integrate their respective solutions to offer customers cloud-delivered, social video collaboration services.

The team-up integrates Meetrix’s UC cloud service for IBM Sametime and Polycom’s video infrastructure software on-premises or cloud-delivered from a service provider to help customers securely and reliably connect, communicate, and collaborate visually through their cloud-delivered social business app.

Meetrix works with any deployment of Polycom’s RealPresence platform, meaning the conferencing giant’s channel partners get a real benefit from interoperability. It’s a value-add for Meetrix partners who will use Polycom’s technology to extend investments they’ve already made.

Weve offered integration with IBM Sametime for years but as more customers especially small and midsized companies explore cloud strategies, were excited to partner with Meetrix, a real innovator in this space,” said Steve Pattison, VP of business development, Polycom. The Meetrix UC in the Cloud for IBM Sametime service allows customers to deploy IBM Sametime almost instantly, and when you integrate Polycom RealPresence video solutions into the social business environment, customers can keep their upfront costs down, leverage their existing investments, and quickly realize a return on their investment from the increased productivity of face-to-face collaboration.”

We are excited to team with a prestigious partner such as Polycom,” said Lee Fawcett, CEO of Meetrix. Weve heard from our customers that enterprise-class UC delivered from the cloud is needed, and our joint solution, whether the video infrastructure is on-premises or delivered from the cloud, offers the best-in-class UC and video solution-set available today.”

The offering is available globally for existing Polycom RealPresence Platform and Meetrix UC in the Cloud for IBM Sametime customers at no additional integration or application cost.
