More companies are relying on video conferencing to conduct business. Picking the proper solution can have a real effect on daily operations—both good and bad. However, why pick just one solution when you can have two?

That’s what AT&T is thinking, announcing a partnership with Polycom, Inc. The end result means AT&T users will get a piece of the Polycom RealPresence Platform. Polycom boasts a comprehensive software infrastructure for universal video, on-premises or in the cloud collaboration, inter-operating with the broadest set of applications, devices and network protocols.

“AT&T and Polycom’s announcement is a big win for customer choice and interoperability, and it will help accelerate video collaboration as businesses increasingly look to cloud-delivered options,” says Zeus Kerravala, principle analyst at ZKResearch. “In addition, this agreement opens new revenue streams and business opportunities for AT&T, and demonstrates the momentum Polycom is having with service providers and in the video cloud market.”

To start, AT&T will add the interoperable Polycom RealPresence Platform into its AT&T Telepresence Solution video infrastructure in the AT&T Business Exchange. That will give users access to on-demand virtual meeting room capabilities, easy-to-use video collaboration experiences, and new forms of collaboration with business customers, partners and suppliers on the AT&T Business Exchange.

It also means users will now have access to a range of Polycom RealPresence video solutions in 40 countries, as well as VPN services.

“Our goal is to lead the innovation curve by introducing solutions and services that make communications easier, anytime, anywhere, on any device,” says Michael Bowling, chief marketing officer at AT&T Business Solutions. “The work between AT&T and Polycom will bring customers new capabilities, help expand their reach and use of video collaboration and ultimately deliver lasting impacts by transforming how they get work done.”
