NEW YORK (February 7, 2014) - Teliris (, a leading provider of cloud-based video managed services and solutions, today announced a strategic partnership with Polycom Inc., the global leader in open standards-based unified communications and collaboration (UC&C).

In addition, the 24x7x365 Teliris VNOC guarantees ease of use and the best possible experience in every meeting.

Teliris offers managed services for the entire enterprise video estate, with its vendor-agnostic Lentaris platform. The Teliris Access Portal will allow Polycom users to manage scheduling, reporting and ticketing from a single login, making complex deployments easier than ever before.

Teliris will also license Polycom codecs for its next generation 7G platform, allowing Teliris customers to benefit from Polycom's open, standards-based technology. Teliris customers can upgrade with Polycom codecs inside of existing Teliris systems without any room remediation or significant interruption.

"Teliris brings noted expertise managing high profile meetings and optimizing the overall meeting experience, while Polycom brings a track record for providing high performance, reliable visual collaboration solutions.

Teliris' proprietary software gateway, the Lentaris VideoSoftSwitch (LVSS), allows customers to leverage TIP-based multi-codec interoperability.
