Collaboration device manufacturer Poly, an HP subsidiary, is expanding the Poly Rove family of wireless DECT IP devices and is certifying more of its all-in-one collaboration devices for use with Microsoft Teams and Google Meet.
New DECT IP devices
The company’s newest additions to the Rove family of DECT IP devices are the Rove 20 wireless DECT IP phone and the B1 base station.
According to the company, the Rove 20 wireless DECT IP phone is an entry-level single cell DECT handset with a 2-inch color display, 4-line keys, duplex speakerphone with up to 35 hours of talk time. The device is designed to be an entry-level option to other existing phones in the Rove lineup, which includes the Rove 30 and Rove 40.
The Rove 20 is designed for small and medium-sized businesses, but also offers the flexibility to scale to the needs of any sized organization, according to Poly. The Rove 20 and B1 are specifically meant for warehouse staff, retail staff, clinic staff and other vertical shift-based or front-line workers.
Poly’s new devices in the Rove family also feature security, leveraging the latest standards in DECT wireless security, such as end-to-end encryption.
The Rove 20 is also designed to be interoperable with other Rove devices, allowing the new solutions to work with existing Poly DECT phones in an organization.
For IT departments, the Rove 20 and B1 allow for easy IT management due to their scalability and compatibility with the Poly PDMS-SP, a device management platform designed for IT teams.
Both devices are expected to be available globally April 5, with the Rove 20 starting at $139.95, and the B1 starting at $279.95.
The company also announced new certifications for its collaboration devices with major videoconferencing platforms, including Google Meet and Microsoft Teams.
According to Poly, the company’s Studio X family of Android-based all-in-one video bars are now certified for Google Meet, enabling organizations to leverage the devices in Poly’s first room solutions for Google Meet.
All of the Poly Studio X devices are now certified under the Works with Google Meet program, which essentially guarantees compatibility of conferencing devices with Google Meet. These are the first Android-based video appliances to deliver a comprehensive meeting experience for Google Meet users, the company says.
The Google Meet app is built into the Poly Studio X family of video bars, allowing users to launch Google Meet meetings right from the TC8 and TC10 touch interface.
For Microsoft Teams Rooms, Poly’s lineup now includes the newly certified Poly Studio X70 video bar for large rooms and the G7500 modular room solutions, both of which are designed to support hybrid meetings.
These certifications make Poly Studio X70 the only video bar for large rooms certified for Microsoft Teams on Android, according to Poly.
