TANDBERG Increases Investment Protection with Automatic Software Upgrades


Full Support Now from TANDBERG for Polycom HDX Endpoints and TANDBERG Codian MCUs

NEW YORK and OSLO, Norway, April 2008 - TANDBERG® (OSLO: TAA. OL), a leading global provider of telepresence, high-definition videoconferencing and mobile video solutions, today introduced a new version of its video management suite, featuring automatic upgrades for videoconferencing endpoints and infrastructure software. With the latest software in use at all times, IT administrators can protect their existing and future telepresence and high-definition videoconferencing investments, while users are assured of the latest features and functionality.

TANDBERG Management Suite (TMS) - a video management platform providing centralized management, diagnostics, monitoring and scheduling options for videoconferencing networks - now supports Polycom HDX endpoints and TANDBERG Codian Multipoint Control Units (MCUs). As with previous TMS versions, this new version of the management suite supports Sony, Radvision, Cisco, Aethra, VTel, and additional Polycom product lines. Organizations with multi-vendor environments can now centrally and efficiently manage video networks, especially critical, as video is deployed enterprise-wide as an integral part of unified communications.

“TANDBERG Management Suite has the broadest multi-vendor support in the industry, a factor that is crucial as we monitor hundreds of endpoints and bridges from multiple vendors,” said Pat Crawford, coordinator for distance learning and telecommunications, Texas Education Service Center Region XI, in Fort Worth, Texas. “TANDBERG Management Suite ensures the best possible experience for users in our 80 school districts while reducing the concerns of our IT administrators.”

“The importance of central video network management grows as the number and distribution of videoconferencing systems increases rapidly within enterprises,” said Peter Nutley, director of global product marketing, TANDBERG. “The new version of our TANDBERG management suite further decreases the burden on support staff and lowers the total cost of ownership for video networks.”

Software upgrades are available immediately through existing service agreements.
