Polycom® RealPresence® Access Director

Polycom® RealPresence® Access Director™
Universal video collaboration within and beyond
your firewall
Polycom® RealPresence® Firewall Traversal and Security solutions remove
communication barriers to allow your teams to collaborate more effectively
over video. These solutions provide a secure route for users to connect from
virtually any location and device, providing support for business-to-business
and intra-company collaboration.
The Polycom® RealPresence® Access Director™ enables users within and beyond
the firewall to securely access video services—whether at home, in the office or on
the go. A software based edge server—RealPresence Access Director—securely
routes communications, management and content through firewalls without requiring
additional client hardware or software.
Your IT users can easily and effectively deploy, configure and manage RealPresence
Access Director while reducing the cost to support the growing number of videoenabled workers in your organization without compromising network security. Your
employees can securely and transparently access video services and collaborate
with colleagues, customers and partners from virtually anywhere, with the same
functionality they would have if they were in the office. Additionally, customers,
partners and vendors can join a video conference as a guest user or over a
federated network. By providing a seamless video collaboration experience,
Polycom helps your organization focus on what really matters—connecting your
people, networks, and companies.
As a key component of the Polycom® RealPresence® Platform, the RealPresence
Access Director is tightly integrated with Polycom® RealPresence® Resource Manager
to monitor, manage, and control all the devices on your network and Polycom®
RealPresence Distributed Media Appliance™ (DMA) to manage and distribute
calls across the network. Together, these solutions provide a scalable, secure and
powerful video collaboration solution for your organization.

System capacities and licensing
Hardware specifications
• 25–1,000 concurrent calls
• The Polycom RealPresence Access
Director capacity scales from 25 to
1,000 concurrent calls depending on
the licensing selected. The entry-level
platform comes preconfigured with a
baseline capacity of 25 call licenses.
Additional licensing is offered in the
following expansion license pack sizes:
25/50/100/250/500. When applied to
the system an expansion license pack
augments the device license count.
For example, applying a 100-call
expansion license pack to a baseline
system will yield a total license count
of 125 concurrent calls.
