LiteScape Technologies products enhance Polycom VVX Business Media Phones create a seamless communications experience by integrating corporate data, collaboration tools, and desktop PCs. The power of LiteScape products lies in their ability to integrate the IP PBX with a range of critical applications such as Microsoft Active Directory, Microsoft Outlook/Exchange, IBM Lotus Notes, Salesforce.com, and WebEx.

 

LiteScape’s Secure Profile Management (SPM) software provides multi-factor authentication in combination with a Secure Personal Authentication Reader (SPAR)™  that is attached to the Polycom VVX phone. SPM facilitates a secure login to a Polycom phone using any combination of PIN, biometrics, magnetic card, and RFID. 

 

Benefits

  • Increase Security – by linking an organization’s identity management system with its telephony infrastructure to provide secure authentication and policy enforcement through an IP phone
  • Personalized Access – enables users to receive personalized access to their communications applications and data, such as corporate and personal directories, on any IP phone within their network
  • Secure Mobility – SPM guarantees that users get access only to authorized applications
  • Maximize IT Investment – by taking traditionally distinct and separate technologies (identity management systems and PBXs) and make them work together

When combined with any 3rd party ID reader, SPM enables multi-factor identification and authorization through an IP phone. Security is increased by authenticating users in multiple ways from one device. SPM captures this information, validates it against information in an organization’s identity management system and then grants the user their appropriate level of access. LiteScape offers its own patented, multi-factor ID device, Secure Personal Authentication Reader (SPAR)™–one device can include barcode, RFID, magnetic cards and biometrics. Used as a ‘side-car’ to any IP phone, SPAR enables secure and encrypted exchange of authentication information at the edge of an IP network.

Deltapath  -  2015 Technology Partner Innovation Award Grand Prize Winner

Deltapath has been revolutionizing video communications to make it as simple as an ordinary phone call, anytime, anywhere on any device. Through its strategic partnership with Polycom since 2008, Deltapath provides native integration on all Polycom endpoints and collaboration servers into its frSIP UC Platform.

At TEAM Polycom 2016, Deltapath demonstrated their CSmile video contact center solution in a coordinated Customer Service demonstration with Polycom. Whether your customers connect from a video kiosk at a branch location or retail setting, or from their mobile tablets or smartphones, video is finding its place in the contact center as businesses aim to achieve a more personal communications experience with “eye contact”. Congratulations to Deltapath ,  Polycoms 2015 Technology Partner Innovation Award Grand Prize Winner.

 

Event Zero - 2015 Technology Partner Innovation Award Finalist

Event Zero introduced UC Commander Provisioning for Polycom in May  2015. Many customers witnessed this web-based provisioning tool in action at events like Microsoft Ignite, Infocomm, and Microsoft World Partner Conference. As one customer put it on seeing the UC Commander Provisioning at Microsoft Ignite—“I am planning on replacing 1,400 older Cisco phones with Polycom VVX phones in a migration to Skype for Business, but what I need is management tool to make VVX provisioning easy. This is exactly what I'm looking for!”  With UC Commander Provisioning for Polycom, IT can deploy Polycom endpoints using manageable blocks that can be delegated to your global team for configurations and management—all utilizing the same interface.

EventZeroAward1.JPG

IT staff now have global endpoint management from log files and inventory to rebooting and direct console access—everything you need for your entire Skype for Business (Lync) or OpenSIP deployment in one easy to deploy tool. Event Zero also makes it easy to try out UC Commander Provisioning for Polycom with a 45 day free trial. Congratulations to Event Zero for being a Polycom 2015 Technology Partner Innovation Award Finalist.

Polycom Employee

Innovation is the lifeblood of any technology organization, and it is clear that organizations today must innovate faster to remain competitive, and to ultimately deliver greater efficiency and differentiation to their customers.  The other reality is that this rapid innovation must also be delivered as cost effectively as possible.  In this world of finite resources and constricted timelines, innovation no longer takes place solely within companies, but occurs in tandem with a fully enabled technology partner ecosystem.

 

Polycom has long embraced technology partners within the context of the larger Polycom Partner Network, but in a move to accelerate innovation among its technology partner community, and to establish greater collaboration between Polycom product teams and its partner community, Polycom hosted its first Technology Partner Innovation Summit in San Jose in May.  This event successfully brought Polycom’s lead product managers together with key Polycom technology partners, to exchange ideas and to accelerate the innovation that takes place around Polycom products – both from within and outside of Polycom.  The Tech Partner Innovation Summit set out to:

 

Establish bilateral sharing of roadmap information

  • Allow innovation to accelerate, and integrations to be completed in coordination with future Polycom product releases
  • Allow partners to understand Polycom development priorities, and thus what gaps exist that they can quickly fill and drive to market

 Exchange thoughts around market and industry trends, and competitive issues

  • Better understand market and specific industry requirements, i.e. medical, education, financial service markets
  • Better understand competitive offers in the market – both strengths and shortfalls

 Provide valuable feedback

  • Exchange customer and market feedback around valued features and workflows – related to both in existing and roadmap solutions
  • Exchange feedback on API hooks that are necessary to enable and accelerate innovation – at the tech partner level

 

Ten Polycom technology partners attended this Summit in Q2, in the first of an ongoing event that Polycom will be hosting twice annually.  The next event, to be held in Q4, will include an expanded list of partners, interested in working closely with Polycom to innovate around the Polycom product suite, and look for these products to launch over the next several quarters, and to be showcased at TEAM Polycom 2016.    

 

Polycom’s innovation requires conceiving of the ‘Art of the Possible’, but it also comes from recognizing that the most important technical breakthroughs may not be developed by Polycom.  Call it an innovation hedge, but close collaboration with the Polycom technology partner ecosystem is a central strategy for both accelerating innovation and reducing the cost around delivering efficient and differentiated solutions.

Polycom Employee

The Polycom Technology Partner ecosystem continues to expand, helping Polycom to extend its solutions, and allowing these solutions to become further differentiated and more attuned to particular vertical markets.  This growth is also extending in another way – as the Polycom Partner ecosystem begins to mesh with the Microsoft partner ecosystem.   Polycom’s partnership with Microsoft continues to make an increasing impact in the market, through an expansion of integrated products, an increase in joint solution bundles and a sharp increase in the revenue directly attributable to this partnership. 

 

And, this impact (and growing joint install base) has not gone unnoticed by the Microsoft Partner community, who would like to, not just extend the value of Microsoft solutions in the market, but jointly extend the value of Microsoft and Polycom solutions, for those organizations that leverage both Microsoft and Polycom to support their voice, video and content requirements.   These integrated 3rd party technologies further automate and/or extend innovation around a Polycom/Microsoft deployment.

 

These partners generally fit within one of the following technology categories:  Gateways, Provisioning, Session Border Control (SBC), Contact Centers, Headsets, Networking and E911.  Two long time Microsoft partners, who recently joined Polycom’s Technology Partner program, are Event Zero and RedSky Communications.

 

Event Zero provides Lync and Polycom business phone provisioning and management.  The Event Zero product – UC Commander, automates provisioning for Polycom, in Skype for Business (Lync) or OpenSIP environments, and UC Commander provides a single interface for deploying, managing, and maintaining inventory for global endpoints. 

 

Additionally, UC Commander provides comprehensive management of the endpoints; from log files and inventory to rebooting and direct console access—everything needed to manage an organization-wide deployment in one easy-to-use tool.  Other key features include:

  • Dashboards – ID and locate Polycom devices – by sites, groups, models and endpoints
  • Dynamic Configurations – create global configurations, or build on it by group, model, type, site, or a specific endpoint
  • Endpoint Management – access log files (without logging into phones), quickly reboot a single phone or groups of phones
  • Reporting - combines powerful analytics for Microsoft Skype for Business (SfB) usage (call details records and quality

Another Polycom Technology Partner whose products support both Microsoft and Polycom deployments is RedSky Communications.  RedSky provides enhanced 9-1-1 (E911) services, which routes an emergency call to the appropriate 9-1-1 Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP) for the caller's location, and automatically displays the caller's phone number, address and location within the address.

 

RedSky provides both a cloud based service and on premise solution that supports Polycom and Lync deployments allowing Standard Polycom IP phones and Lync devices to become location aware, and be updated in real time.  And, RedSky’s service supports mobile users, who may be reconnecting to their network from various locations.

 

Today, Polycom is the only Microsoft UC partner that provides direct integration with more than 40 voice, video, and content solutions that integrate with Skype for Business / Microsoft Lync, SharePoint, Exchange and Office 365. The Polycom Microsoft partnership will continue to evolve, but will also be supported by an ecosystem of partnerships that drive differentiation in the market, and valuable innovation for customers.
