Within almost a decade of its establishment. Polycom showed that not only was it here to stay but it was here to rule. The company took over Accord Networks in February 2001. The new takeover formed the backbone of its solutions offering as it was now able to offer firewalls, gateways and multiple control units. It laid the foundation stone on which the Polycom video conferencing behemoth stands.
Months later, is a rather surprising move, Polycom took over PictureTel Corporation. This brought Polycom in the PC based conferencing sector. This led to Polycom video conferencing actually making it large with the common people. Another takeover by Polycom happened in 2004. This time it was Voyant Technologies. While the earlier takeover made the company popular among people, this time the company established itself in the business sector.
Another major breakthrough of Polycom was achieved in 2006. This was the year when the company intrduced it RPX 200 Series as well as the 400 Series telepresence solutions. This happened at a time when the Polycom VSX solutions had already made the company uber popular in the field of video conferencing solutions. It was soon followed by HDX 9000 Series which made high definition video conferencing a reality.
