The Polycom RealPresence platform will be installed in NATO locations across Europe and North America and will be built to hold resources for operations such as classified communications and resource planning, Polycom said Monday.
NATO aims for the video platform to help workers and delegates collaborate to make decisions regarding diplomatic missions, humanitarian interventions and response force actions.
“NATO’s work requires cooperation and collaboration, so the ability to meet face-to-face anywhere, anytime is a strategic advantage, ” said Mark Escobar, senior vice president of SAIC’s Defense Department agencies and commands group.
Polycom’s firewall traversal services are designed to help desktop and mobile video users to join meetings, as well as the myVRM application to schedule video conferences.
Polycom RealPresence also features closed captioning, content sharing across systems and Microsoft Lync interoperability.
The unified communications provider is scheduled to demonstrate the video collaboration tool at the NATO Information Assurance and Cyber Defense Symposium Tuesday through Thursday in Mons, Belgium.
