Polycom Network Infrastructure

Many organisations utilise personal, room or immersive telepresence to improve productivity, reduce costs, and connect their workforce. The Polycom UC (Unified Communications) Intelligent Core enables you to confidently address growing demands for these services while delivering reliable, high quality user experiences throughout your organisation.

Polycom’s range of network infrastructure equipment includes RMX multipoint control units (MCU), Converged Management Application (CMA) and Video Border Proxy (VBP). Together they provide a powerful and versatile platform on which to run, manage and control a video network.

Polycom RMX Series Multipoint Control Units

Polycom RMX2000

The Polycom RMX Series range of MCU’s provide comprehensive video bridging solutions. On a small scale multipoint calling can actually be achieved within some endpoints with the acquisition of a multipoint license key, however this is usually restricted to  a maximum of 4 sites. Organisations requiring multipoint functionality on a larger scale need to consider a dedicated MCU and there is an RMX product to suit every application.

  • RMX4000 – (Enterprise) The RMX 4000 conference platform is a redundant and scalable multipoint solution, which maximizes productivity by extending unified collaboration to teams throughout the enterprise and beyond.
  • RMX1500 – (Mid Range) A simplified, flexible, midrange conferencing platform designed to extend the power of video, audio and content collaboration to the network edge, including branches, small offices, remote sites, and teleworkers.
