Dynamic workplace environments require the flexibility for employees to move around while still remaining fully connected no matter where they are. Collaboration is critical no matter where your “desk” may reside and collaboration tools that move with you easily have become an essential tool. Polycom advanced its leadership in the collaboration space by announcing an expansion of its industry-leading Polycom business media phone solutions.
The Polycom Soundstation offers a way for IT managers to give workers the ability to host professional teleconferences from small work areas, rather than having to reserve the main conference room. Calls from the SoundStation are just as clear, and perhaps even better, than ones made from larger, more expensive units.
As a VoIP phone, setup couldn’t be simpler. A user can simply plug the base into a free network port, and the SoundStation will connect with the agency’s Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol server and assign itself a static IP address. Technically, that means the device could be used as a shared unit if needed, because it can be unplugged and reconnected in another room without having to go through the setup process again. In addition, the configuration data stored on the phone is encrypted, and the unit can be password-protected to prevent unauthorized use. Agencies that worry about adding any unsecured endpoint to their networks can rest easy.
The Polycom Wireless phone is an enterprise-grade cordless accessory of Polycom’s industry-leading VVX business media phone technology, providing the flexibility of wireless communication with the features, functionality and superior voice quality of Polycom’s industry-leading VVX solutions.
