Juniper and Polycom Partner on Video Conferencing

Juniper Networks and Polycom announced an alliance focused on telepresence and video conferencing services. Scheduled for release in mid 2010, the alliance will deliver an intelligent service provider solution that enables assured-quality managed video services over a converged network. The solution will use dynamic signaling between the Juniper network resource control platform and the Polycom video call control system. The companies said this level of integration will help drive costs out of the delivery of high-value telepresence.

In addition to the benefits for service providers, enterprise customers will also have more control over how services are delivered, while increasing the business value of those services by enabling telepresence and video conferencing traffic to run over the same networking equipment as other applications with assured quality.
