Versatile networking and security solution that offers
future-proof scalability
The Polycom V2IU 5300-E series helps reduce costs by simplifying the deployment, management, and security
of converged video, voice, and data networks. This is the ideal solution for enterprises that need to enhance
interoffice connectivity and collaboration, or migrate from ISDN to IP-based network connectivity.
Many organizations achieve future-proof scalability by initially deploying the Polycom 5300-E series with a
10 Mbps performance license. As additional bandwidth is required, simply upgrade the 5300-E to 25 Mbps
using a software license key to avoid expensive hardware forklifts or replacements.
In addition, the Polycom V2IU 5300-E is a VoIP and video-aware solution that helps resolve NAT/firewall
traversal issues by performing video and voice NAT at the public/private IP address boundary, eliminating
the security risks of other traversal methods that tunnel or “obscure” video and voice traffic from existing
perimeter security.
It employs a stateful packet inspection firewall in combination with an application layer gateway, providing
comprehensive application-aware security. This approach enables the Polycom V2IU 5300-E to dynamically
provision and close TCP and UDP ports as needed by video and voice endpoints.
The Polycom V2IU 5300-E also makes optimizing the quality of your video and voice calls easy by routing
video and voice traffic via the shortest path possible to minimize jitter, latency, and packet loss.
At the same time, bandwidth not in use by video or voice is made available so that data traffic can burst up
to full line rate, maximizing WAN bandwidth. This traffic management, combined with video and voice call
admission control, allows the administrator to effectively manage video and voice to deliver a high-quality
The Polycom V2IU 5300-E series enables you to access the power of Polycom unified collaborative
