Polycom, Inc . (Nasdaq: PLCM), the global leader in open standards-based unified communications (UC), today announced that POSCO Engineering & Construction Co., Ltd. (POSCO E&C) has selected Polycom RealPresence video collaboration solutions, for its Video Conferencing Project, designed to accelerate business operations and minimize travel through enhanced collaboration between the company’s head office, local offices, and constructions sites in and out of Korea, and globally, including operations in Brazil and Indonesia.

Working together with POSCO ICT, a specialized company in IT & Engineering, POSCO Engineering and Construction deployed Polycom RealPresence video solutions – including Polycom® RealPresence® Room systems – in six locations across Korea including executive conference rooms in its Songdo office building, and conference rooms for employees in provincial areas. The system was also built in 13 locations in nine countries abroad including China, India, Indonesia, Vietnam, Brazil, Australia, Chile, Peru, and Israel.

A key requirement for the project was the need for a secure and stable system interoperable with other solutions and highly scalable. Polycom’s video solutions are powered by the Polycom® RealPresence® Platform – the most comprehensive and interoperable UC software infrastructure for universal video collaboration – which transforms islands of fragmented communications systems into a seamless culture of collaboration, with enterprise-grade video easily and securely accessible to all authorized personnel whether they’re mobile, remote, or on-site.

With an easy-to-use interface, proven reliability, and capacity for multi-lateral collaborations, the video solutions have already been used frequently across POSCO’s offices including those in Seoul and Busan, and construction sites in many different parts of the world for everything from business and executive meetings, design and process review and remote inspections, to project team meetings with construction crew and remote site staff, conducting as many as 15 video calls a day on average, across the company’s global sites. By replacing business trips with video, the company secured a channel for quick information sharing and interactive collaboration, thereby helping to enhance productivity and ensure business continuity. The company frequently connects anywhere between 40 to 800 participants over video at the one time, and is benefitting from streamlined operations and smooth collaboration.
