Infotech Lead America: Polycom unveiled the Polycom VVX 300 and Polycom VVX 400 Business Media Phones designed to improve productivity and facilitate collaboration for office and cubicle work environments.
The Polycom VVX 300 and Polycom VVX 400 solutions extend the existing portfolio of Polycom VVX Business Media Phones, which also include business phones with video capabilities.
New plug-in expansion modules for the Polycom VVX 300, VVX 400, VVX 500 and VVX 600 also add more programmable line keys to make it easier for power users to manage a high volume of calls and contacts.
With an expansive product line of innovative audio technology, which includes the legendary Polycom SoundStation conference phones, Polycom VVX Business Media Phones and other devices, Polycom has been the industry leader in audio conferencing solutions for more than 20 years. Polycom recently shipped more than 10 million audio devices since the company’s founding in 1990.
The new Polycom VVX 300 is a powerful entry-level business media phone with 6 programmable line keys, suitable for today’s cubicle workers who handle a low-to-moderate volume of calls. The Polycom VVX 400 is a mid-range business media phone with 12 programmable line keys and a larger color screen for ease of use and enhanced call-handling for knowledge workers and administrative assistants. Both solutions deliver benefits including:
Large screens with an intuitive user interface and programmable line keys make it easy to manage calls and contacts. With access to common workplace applications, users can view and manage their calendars, receive meeting reminders and alerts, and search the corporate directory.
Ease of installation and setup reduces total cost of ownership. Organizations can deploy Polycom VVX phones on their existing networks with open SIP-based call control platforms. Polycom’s zero-touch provisioning and Web-based configuration tool make the VVX Business Media Phones simple and inexpensive to administer, upgrade and maintain.
A built-in Web browser enables easy integration with third party applications. The provided open APIs enable developers to integrate the Polycom VVX solutions with other business and UC&C applications.
New accessories for the Polycom VVX product line include expansion modules that can be easily plugged to provide more programmable line keys to help them manage a high volume of contacts and calls. The Polycom VVX Color Expansion Module is available in high-resolution LCD.
