Polycom launches cloud services for businesses

Polycom has unveiled its unified cloud strategy, which includes Polycom Cloud Services, and Polycom Device Management Services (PDMS). These offerings provide new capabilities for enterprise customers to manage and measure their telephony devices.

Polycom also announced it will continue to deploy new cloud solutions for businesses, while adding solutions for service providers in the coming months. These new services allow users to simplify audio device lifecycle management by using the cloud to bring data and analytics to administer, monitor, and measure the growing complexity of audio devices within their organisations.
 
The new Polycom Cloud Services are:
 
For Enterprise Customers:  
PDMS for Enterprise, which is available now enables IT pros to manage all their Polycom audio devices, including desk phones and conference room phones, from a single cloud portal. The PDMS-E portal enables enterprises to provision, update, and secure audio devices regardless of scale.
 
Polycom’s RealConnect interoperability solution will become part of Polycom’s Cloud Services in Q3 of this year. The RealConnect cloud service creates an interoperability layer for audio services, specifically Microsoft Skype for Business, that are used within a customer’s current environment using Polycom or other hardware.

For Service Providers:
•    PDMS will be launched in Q3 of 2018, allowing service providers to incorporate Polycom audio device management and analytics into their customer portal experience. Service Providers will benefit from improved uptime and the ability to anticipate and mitigate customer issues, aggregate critical analytical data, and customise devices to meet customer needs.
 
•    Polycom will release an API in Q3 which will allow Service Providers to customise which services and analytics they need for each customer. These APIs will turn PDMS into a platform that empowers service providers to immediately open the door to future innovation and exciting development opportunities, such as endpoints like Polycom Trio, which will get even smarter in the future.
 
Polycom Cloud Services currently focus on audio devices and solutions, but the company plans to add support for enterprise customers to manage video conference devices in the same way by end of 2018.
