Platform Functions: Five Ways to Improve Collaboration
The Polycom RealPresence Platform fits in the UC "stack" between the foundation layer of core network and security infrastructure and the services, applications, and device/endpoint layers above it, enabling the various software elements, which are typically from a range of different vendors, to interoperate seamlessly. The five functional areas spanned by the platform are described in the diagram.
Polycom® RMX® solutions are the cornerstone of the Polycom RealPresence™ Platform, enabling you to realise the benefits of open unified communications by mixing multi-party voice, video and content collaboration sessions together. Streamlining complexity and reducing costs, RMX solutions connect UC environments and applications seamlessly and enable a reliable, high-quality user experience.
Complete solutions for video-enabling all or select parts of your organisation, including management applications, video conferencing platforms, recording and streaming servers, video content management, secure remote access, and a full suite of partner solutions.
The Polycom Distributed Media Application is a unique network-based virtualisation application for managing & distributing calls across collaboration networks. Utilising a highly reliable & scalable processing architecture, the DMA 7000 as an integral solution in the Polycom RealPresence Platform, which maximises and leverages existing infrastructure & investment.
Managed, monitored, and under control
A key component of the Polycom RealPresence Platform, available as a hardened appliance or software optimized for virtualized environments, the RealPresence Resource Manager application is critical to effectively managing thousands of mobile, desktop, and group telepresence systems.
Administrators can use it to centrally provision, monitor and manage the entire video collaboration network. Through dynamic provisioning, it automatically configures and maintains thousands of video clients at pre-determined software baselines. This eliminates having a variety of software releases in the field, fixing end-user configuration mismatches, being uncertain about the quality of video being provided, and other typical management issues.
Built-in reports, application dashboards, and drill-down tabs ensure you can instantly access troubleshooting and operational metrics are readily available.
RealPresence Resource Manager is dependent on an external video call control (gatekeeper/SIPRegistrar) for scale which is achieved via tight integration with Polycom RealPresence Distributed Media Application (DMA). This provides highly reliable scheduled conferences, a unified dial plan, and a variety of options for leading UC environments.
Customers and partners who want to better understand the API suite, or get started, can refer to the Polycom Developers Program. For assistance in using the API suite to develop applications for your specific business needs, visit the API Software Integration service page for consulting options.
