NATO has selected Polycom to ensure the best business communication solutions for its new Brussels, Belgium headquarters.
As the primary unified communications provider of NATO’s Active Network Infrastructure (ANWI) project Polycom will supply RealPresence Platform for its hybrid video collaboration, voice and data deployment.
The strategy of NATO is to provide flexibility and capability to secure collaborative communications among to employees, military commands and deployed units.
“There is an importance to us in the way Polycom integrates with other communications platforms, such as Microsoft, and the ins-and-outs of the nucleus of our UC&C platforms which help take our communications into the next century,” said Steven Janis, project manager of the new NATO Headquarters.
Polycom said it will offer 2,500 Polycom VVX business media voice end points for use with Skype For Business. While the initial deployment at NATO’s new headquarters will be focused on generalised services, the Polycom RealPresence Platform offers the scalability to increase to a more comprehensive UCC infrastructure.
