Polycom introduces VVX D business media phone to the market

Polycom is introducing the latest addition to its VVX 1500 solutions portfolio, the Polycom VVX 1500 D business media phone, the industry’s first simultaneous dual-stack (H.323 and Session Initiation Protocol (SIP)) device.

This new UC endpoint is suited for large organisations with existing H.323 video deployments that are planning for a future where video and telephony communication will migrate into one UC platform.

Jim Kruger, Vice President of Marketing, Polycom Voice Communications Solutions says, “The Polycom VVX 1500 family has been very well received in the market, in large part because it’s so easy to use. We believe this simplicity and ease of use combined with the introduction of VVX 1500 models that fit within the diverse UC environments of our customers will help accelerate video adoption on a global scale.”

In addition to H.323, the VVX 1500 D simultaneously supports the SIP signaling protocol. This enables integration with Polycom certified SIP-based UC platforms that provide advanced IP telephony capabilities. In environments that have a mix of H.323 and SIP, the VVX 1500 D will automatically select the appropriate protocol based on the capabilities and location of the destination device.
