Polycom Security and Remote Access

Security and Firewall Traversal

Polycom Video Border Proxy (VBP™) solutions allow video conferences to securely traverse firewalls, while retaining complete network security.

Users of standards-based high definition video endpoints such as the Polycom HDX series can now remotely and securely communicate over video on enterprise or service provider networks.

By performing video NAT at the IP address boundary, Polycom VBP solutions forward video traffic via the shortest path possible to minimize jitter, delay, and packet loss. Polycom VBP solutions fully protect H.323 gatekeepers, video endpoints, and multipoint conference platforms from attack, while safeguarding video quality.

Polycom VBP series also optimize video conference quality through traffic management features such as prioritization, traffic shaping, call admission control, and diffserv marking/policing. In addition, the Polycom VBP series enhances network security with an H.323-aware packet inspection firewall that opens and closes TCP and UDP ports as required.

Polycom Video Border Proxy (VBP) Solutions

Extend your visual communication ecosystem safely and securely

The Polycom Video Border Proxy™ (VBP™) NAT/Firewall traversal solutions remove communication barriers and allow teams to collaborate more effectively over video. Supplanting or integrating with existing firewalls to provide a trusted route for remote users into room and personal telepresence and traditional video conferences, the Polycom VBP Series also optimizes video quality by prioritizing video traffic over data traffic and providing both shortest-path routing and traffic shaping.
