NEW DELHI, INDIA: Polycom, Inc., a provider of telepresence, video and voice communications solutions, today announced the launch of the VoIP Field Verified (VFV) Program in Asia Pacific.
The program recognizes SIP-based call control providers that have successfully integrated Polycom VoIP phones with their call control platforms.
It provides a value proposition for platform vendors, enabling them to speed up time-to-market cycles and increase revenues through their own in-house interoperability testing, said a press release.
Eligibility for the program is dependent on platform vendors performing comprehensive testing in their own lab, as well as testimonials from at least two end-user customers that verify successful integrations with the call control platform.
There are no certification costs or annual membership fees associated with the VFV Program, the release added.
The first partner to join the VFV Program in the Asia Pacific region is Hong Kong-based Deltapath Commerce and Technology Limited, the provider of a SIP-based PBX platform with prefix-free call-routing intelligence that enables users to receive calls wherever they may be located.
“The VFV Program has helped Deltapath grow substantially, by enabling us to access Polycom technical information and resources, and better leverage Polycom’s superior voice communications solutions,” said David Liu, founder and CEO of Deltapath.
According to Peter White, APAC head of voice sales at Polycom “The Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) was established to promote interoperability amongst devices from multiple vendors, giving end users greater flexibility in choosing solutions to support their business communication requirements.”
