Sunil Bhalla, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Polycom Voice Communications Solutions

"With increased pressures on expenses, people are traveling less and relying on business tools such as their conference phones for effective and productive communications. Companies require reliable, high-quality communications devices. Polycom has been addressing that need since 1992, and we continue to innovate and grow our conference phone portfolio. Our latest lineup of SoundStation IP conference phones all include Polycom HD Voice as well as advanced radio frequency (RF) shielding technology that eliminates the annoying buzzing noise caused by interference from nearby cellular devices. With these next generation conference phones, customers will reap the benefits of a new level of communication with more productive, engaging conference calls."

Rob Enderle, President and Principal Analyst, Enderle Group

On the CX5000 in his recent blog, "Will Cisco and Tandberg Fix What Videoconferencing Is Still Lacking?"

"Done right, [the Polycom CX5000] is actually a more natural-feeling experience than a typical videoconference is because it feels more like a meeting with people sitting around a table and folks don't have to go to special rooms."
