Polycom, Inc. (Nasdaq: PLCM), the global leader in open standards-based unified communications and collaboration (UC&C), today announced that select solutions from the Polycom® CX Series of IP phones, optimized for Microsoft ® Lync , are now available for Federal government agencies on the GSA Schedule, on the GS-35F-0511T GSA vehicle through EC America, Inc.

The Polycom CX Series of IP phones takes the simplicity and familiarity of the Lync interface to government agencies to better and more securely connect their voice and collaboration platforms into one UC&C environment. Polycom’s Lync-optimized solutions simplify deployment, streamline communications, encourage collaboration, and lower total cost of ownership through native integration and plug-and-play functionality for easy deployment, management, and provisioning versus traditional PBX and IP PBX voice systems.

“Microsoft Office 365 and Microsoft Lync are being adopted quickly by customers seeking cost savings and greater productivity,” said Greg Myers, Vice President of Microsoft Federal Sales. “Polycom CX phones availability on the GSA Schedule makes it easier for our customers to order and benefit from a full unified communications solution. Polycom delivers innovative voice and video end points and infrastructure that deliver to customers a great Lync experience and value.”

“The Federal government is under increasing pressure to improve communication and collaboration, both within and between agencies, to streamline operations, reduce costs, and better serve citizens,” said Tony D’Angelo, Vice President of Federal Operations, Polycom. “The Microsoft Lync environment is ideal for rapidly connecting employees and contractors across government agencies, and Polycom offers the broadest portfolio of Lync-optimized solutions, spanning desktop, common areas and conference rooms, and builds on its legacy of high-quality audio and conferencing by delivering the only conference phone designed for Lync.”
