Why Read This Report

In Forrester's 39-criteria evaluation of videoconferencing solution vendors, we identified the seven most significant providers in the category — Cisco, Huawei, LifeSize, Polycom, Radvision, Teliris, and Vidyo — and researched, analyzed, and scored them. Leaders that emerged have broad product portfolios with deep integration into unified communications (UC) infrastructure, while Strong Performers pursue a more focused strategy, excelling in particular market niches or in particular regions. This report details our findings about how well each vendor fulfills our criteria and where they stand in relation to one another to help IT professionals select the right provider for their environment.
