Without the proper tools, managing a video conferencing network can be challenging, error prone and very time consuming, resulting in wasted time and underutilized services. Typical administrators spend a considerable amount of time manually updating, configuring and troubleshooting the network. Not having immediate reports on conferencing usage hinders administrators in planning and increasing utilization. The RealPresence Video DualManager 400 provides administrators centralized management application tools to implement, integrate, monitor, manage and report on the video network. This centralized solution puts the administrator in control of the network in real time, allowing them to understand exactly the current health and status of all video conferencing services.
Administrators can use Video DualManager to centrally provision, monitor and manage the entire video collaboration network. Through dynamic provisioning, it automatically configures and maintains hundreds 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 instant access to troubleshooting and operational metrics.
The built in H.323 gatekeeper and SIP Proxy/Registrar functionality provides administrators the flexibility of integrating the video conferencing network into leading UC platforms, making video conferencing easy to use for end users without complex and costly reconfigurations. The integration simplifies and unifies dialing so that making video calls is as easy as a telephone call.
- Scalability to 400 devices, helping you effectively manage mobile, desktop and group telepresence systems
- Easy administration through comprehensive device monitoring, provisioning, management and software revision control
- Directory and presence engines to simplify dialing
- Scheduling options via Web GUI or APIs, resulting in a holistic application
- Utilizes a centralized AD database for simplifying and streamlining account management, logging and monitoring.
- An API suite, for direct integrations into your key applications and systems
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.
