Polycom V2IU Series

The Polycom V2IU series enables reduced costs for your enterprise, by simplifying deployment, management and security of converged video, voice and data networks.

NAT(Network Address Translation) and Firewall traversal issues are resolved by performing video and voice NAT at the public/private IP address boundary. This eliminates security risks posed by other traversal methods that 'tunnel' or obscure video and voice traffic at the existing perimeter.

IT managers, you no longer need to open ports in your firewall for voice or video. The V2IU allows you to keep your security policies intact.

The V2IU series is available in the following end-user configurations:

Polycom Global Management System (GMS)

A web-based architecture that has the ability to manage your video network from outside the Local Area Network (LAN). This feature enables Global Management System to be a true end-to-end solution that can manage any manufacturer's video communication device with an embedded web server.

Zero-Administration Directory Services enables the ViewStation systems to automatically register themselves with the network directory, eliminating the need for manual administration. The centralized, network-based directory eliminates the problem of maintaining remote address books as you add more ViewStation systems to your network. The intelligent dialing feature automatically adds area code and country code prefixes to eliminate user-dialing confusion. Non-Polycom equipment can be added to the directory as well.

By pressing the "Info" button on the ViewStation remote control, users send an alert to the administrator console to receive immediate assistance. The remote video monitor enables administrators to see what the end user's see on their video screens from the convenience of the administrator's console. The remote dialing capabilities help users in trouble by letting the administrator dial the call for the user. These features virtually eliminate the need for dispatching remote support personnel.

The new provisioning functionality greatly simplifies the management of large video communication deployments by enabling IT administrators to create standard profiles of ViewStation settings. Provisioning makes it possible to simultaneously configure groups of ViewStation systems from a single location as opposed to manual configuration each time a ViewStation is deployed or when a group of systems need to be reconfigured.
