October 2001, Polycom completed its acquisition of PictureTel Corporation, adding to its product line the world's leading PC-based group video communications architecture.
January, 2004 Polycom added Voyant Technologies, offering best-in-class products to service providers, carriers or enterprises wanting to provide collaborative, enhanced voice applications to internal or external customers.
