Ipanema Technologies Delivers Polycom-ready UC&C Network Performance and Optimization Solution

PARIS --(Business Wire)--

Ipanema (News - Alert) Technologies, the leading provider of Application Performance Guarantee solutions for business efficiency, today launched a powerful partnership with Polycom (News - Alert), Inc. This partnership will enable companies to have full visibility and control of their business critical applications over their networks. Ipanema Technologies has also demonstrated solution interoperability with Polycom, Inc. (Nasdaq: PLCM), the global leader in open standards-based unified communications and collaboration (UC&C).

Ipanema Technologies delivers automated application visibility, QoS and control, WAN optimization, and dynamic WAN selection. It does all of this over a company's global network, whatever its size. All of these integrated features collectively contribute to the success of delivering Polycom's video and voice solutions over the corporate network. With Ipanema, Polycom's network utilization can be:

  • Visible to the IT department. This means the impact of UC&C data streams can be fully understood by the IT service desk and communicated to business leaders with simple metrics, comprehensive KPIs and easy-to-understand quality scores. This is important for CIOs, Application Directors and IT Directors, helping them to understand how UC&C is performing across the corporate network.
  • Controlled effectively so that real-time data inside UC&C (like voice) are prioritized above less-critical applications (like file transfers). Additionally, Ipanema prevents dynamic video codecs from expanding beyond reasonable levels, ensuring that other critical applications (such as SAP (News - Alert) or transactional systems) still function to the required SLA at any time.
  • Intelligently routed across the appropriate network when deployed with a hybrid Internet + MPLS network. Ipanema ensures an excellent user experience and provides access to the large bandwidth that UC&C requires, all at a reasonable cost.

Ipanema Technologies has satisfied Polycom's extensive interoperability requirements and has been certified as Polycom-Ready. Polycom-Ready solutions, including end-user devices, network devices, and software applications are tested for interoperability with Polycom products and applications. When customers see solutions bearing the Polycom-Ready badge, they know they've been proven to work with the world's leading open standards-based UC&C platform.

"We are pleased to work with Polycom to provide Application Performance Guarantee solutions. As the importance of unified communications and collaboration continues to grow, companies need assurance that they'll receive consistently high-quality video and voice. We're excited that this partnership will fully ensure that UC&C will be delivered smoothly and appropriately over the customer's network, helping to enhance business success and ensure a consistent user experience," said BĂ©atrice Piquer-Durand, Vice-President Marketing for Ipanema Technologies.

"Innovators like Ipanema Technologies enhance Polycom's UC&C solutions by delivering real value and reliable interoperability - and because of that, Ipanema Technologies has earned Polycom-Ready certification," said Steve Pattison, Vice President of Business Development at Polycom. "Ipanema's Application Performance Guarantee solution provides real-time data streams that are critical to increasing network efficiency as customers scale their collaboration solutions."

Polycom Technology Partners are committed to teaming with Polycom to improve the customer experience by adding unique value to Polycom solutions and solving customer business challenges. The Polycom Technology Partner Program is comprised of Polycom Foundation Technology Partners and Polycom Premier Technology Partners. Premier Technology Partners have committed to a deeper relationship with Polycom, and to an on-going partnership spanning activities such as business planning, development, additional testing of solutions and joint go-to-market activities. As a Premier Polycom Technology Partner, Ipanema Technologies collaborates with Polycom to develop unique, customer-focused solutions that collectively broaden the portfolio offerings of Ipanema Technologies and Polycom.

Along with Ipanema Technologies, Polycom Partner Network members enhance and extend Polycom's open, standards-based video collaboration solutions, and together deliver the most complete UC&C solutions available to Polycom's diverse and growing customer base. Through the Polycom Partner Network, technology providers, ISVs, solution advisors, integrators, service providers, and other valued partners can easily address the multi-faceted needs of today's organizations that are using face-to-face video collaboration to improve productivity, engagement, time-to-market, business continuity, as well as for unique applications across various vertical industries.
