Managed, monitored, and under control
A key component of the Polycom RealPresence Platform, available as a hardened appliance or software optimized for virtualized environments, the RealPresence Resource Manager application is critical to effectively managing thousands of mobile, desktop, and group telepresence systems.
Administrators can use it to centrally provision, monitor and manage the entire video collaboration network. Through dynamic provisioning, it automatically configures and maintains thousands of video clients at pre-determined software baselines. This eliminates having a variety of software releases in the field, fixing end-user configuration mismatches, being uncertain about the quality of video being provided, and other typical management issues.
Built-in reports, application dashboards, and drill-down tabs ensure you can instantly access troubleshooting and operational metrics are readily available.
- Scalability to 50,000 devices, helping you effectively manage mobile, desktop and group telepresence systems
- Easy administration through comprehensive device monitoring, provisioning, management and software revision control
- Directories and presence engines that simplify dialing
- An API suite, for direct integrations into your key applications and systems
- Multi-tenant support for cloud-based hosting
- Scheduling options via Web GUI or APIs, resulting in a holistic application
RealPresence Resource Manager is dependent on an external video call control (gatekeeper/SIPRegistrar) for scale which is achieved via tight integration with Polycom RealPresence Distributed Media Application (DMA). This provides highly reliable scheduled conferences, a unified dial plan, and a variety of options for leading UC environments.
Customers and partners who want to better understand the API suite, or get started, can refer to the Polycom Developers Program. For assistance in using the API suite to develop applications for your specific business needs, visit the API Software Integration service page for consulting options.
