Polycom Earns Prestigious InfoWorld 100 Award

Industry Visionary Polycom Recognized for a World-Class Network Transformation

PLEASANTON, CA--(Marketwire - November 18, 2008) - Polycom, Inc. (NASDAQ: PLCM), the global leader in telepresence, video and voice communications solutions, has been named to the 2008 InfoWorld 100. The InfoWorld 100 awards honor companies for IT projects that exemplify intelligent, creative uses of technology to meet business and technical objectives. According to InfoWorld, the winning projects stand as proof that striking a new path in IT can reap deep organizational rewards.

Polycom and Glenn Noga, Polycom chief information officer, were recognized for the comprehensive transformation of the company's network infrastructure. Polycom's network transformation began with a bottom-up design of the company's global WAN and LAN environments, with an emphasis on reducing the latency, jitter, and packet loss of high-definition video, VoIP, and business application traffic, spanning 500 network devices and 5,000 end-user devices at more than 40 locations.

"Our new high performance network has become a competitive advantage for the company," said Noga. "We have equipped our employees with a complete set of communications tools that support all the different styles found in a global company, and there's no question that the investments we made in unified communications and collaboration technologies have had a significant impact on employee productivity worldwide."

"Breathing new life into outdated operations, advancing business goals with inventive use of technology -- this year's winners demonstrate, once again, that innovative, business-minded IT is the lifeblood of successful organizations," said Jason Snyder, senior editor for InfoWorld. A complete list of InfoWorld 100 winners is available on www.infoworld.com.
