Network Equipment Technologies' UX2000 Interoperable with Polycom SpectraLink Phones

February 23, 2011

Network Equipment Technologies, which offers networking equipment optimized for real-time communications, announced the completion of interoperability testing with Polycom, a provider of unified communication solutions.

The interoperability testing was part of the Polycom VoIP Field Verified (VFV) Program.

As part of the VFV program, NET completed interoperability testing of Polycom's SpectraLink 8020/8030 Wireless Telephones with Microsoft Lync Server 2010 using NET's Unified Exchange 2000 (UX2000) mediation platform.

Earlier, NET had completed interoperability testing for Polycom's KIRK DECT (digital enhanced cordless telecommunications) systems and SoundPoint IP phones.

“Through our relationship with NET, we offer customers a single device solution that will reduce call routing complexity by centralizing the routing in the gateway instead of through multiple locations,” said Chris Thorson, director of product marketing at Polycom, in a statement. “This is an ideal solution for onsite mobile workers in both small and large enterprises with multiple branch office locations.”

Polycom's SpectraLink Wireless Telephones function on a converged voice and data Wi-Fi infrastructure and significantly improve mobility and productivity for the mobile workforce in industry verticals such as healthcare, retail, manufacturing and hospitality.

By registering with UX2000, Polycom's SpectraLink Wireless Telephones can be used in collaboration with Microsoft Lync.

“The UX2000 is a true enterprise-class product designed for modularity, outstanding performance, and ease of use,” said Kevin Isacks, chief technology officer and vice president of product management, NET. “It was purpose-built to provide a high quality user experience for UC and provides customers with robust scalability and branch survivability options for their Lync 2010 deployments.”

Recently, Network Equipment Technologies announced the launch of its UX Series high performance mediation platform. The company also announced the general availability of its UX2000, the first of a series of products based on the new platform.
