Polycom gets tighter with Lync

Polycom Inc. has announced a range of ways in which it is increasing the interoperability of its SIP-based endpoints with Microsoft Lync, the company's unified communications platform.
Polycom said Monday that it has created the CX7000 room video collaboration solution, which has full integration with Lync. A desktop-sized client, the CX7000 includes a keyboard and mouse which connects to a corporate Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 or later. An optional HD video camera is available. Polycom says its the first video platform to be qualified by Microsoft as optimized for Lync.
Polycom also said that its KIRK Wireless DECT and SpectraLink Wi-Fi phones can now display call and directory information from Lync, while its SoundPoint IP desktop, SoundStation IP conference and VVX business media phones offer HD voice and functionality with Lync.
More details about the partnership are to be revealed in a Webcast on Tuesday.
