Polycom SoundStation Connect Conference Phone now Available at VoIP Supply

April 08, 2013

Provider of voice, video and telepresence solutions, Polycom has said that the new Polycom SoundStation Connect Conference Phone, with its iconic starfish design, is now available at VoIP Supply.

The company has designed the SoundStation Connect for unified communications (UC) calls in small to medium-sized rooms. This conference phone is USB-based with HD Voice, according to company officials.

“The Polycom SoundStation Connect’s small size and ease of set-up makes it the ideal solution for small computer-based group calls whether you're in the office or on the road” said Garrett Smith, CMO at VoIP Supply, a supplier of voice over Internet protocol (VoIP) equipment and complete VoIP solutions in North America.

In addition to being simple to use and install, the SoundStation Connect is compatible with any UC soft phone application running on Windows, Mac, or Linux computer systems. Company officials said it’s an ideal solution for meetings on the go as it is portable and its compact design fits in a laptop bag.

Moreover, with a USB connection, users can plug-and-play on any computer. Company officials said it eliminates the need for software drivers or an additional power source.

Additionally, each of its three microphones has a seven-foot pickup range with 360-degree room coverage, providing clear conversations in HD Voice. Company officials said the SoundStation Connect features an ultra simple user interface with only a few buttons, as well as volume up/down and mute.

The Polycom SoundStation Connect is scheduled to start shipping in late April 2013 and is currently available for pre-order.

Earlier this year, Polycom announced a definitive agreement to acquire Sentri, a provider of advanced services with expertise in Microsoft technologies, UC&C, video collaboration, cloud services and networking.
