PARIS -- January 7, 2013

Ipanema Technologies, the leading provider of Application Performance
Guarantee solutions for business efficiency, today launched a powerful
partnership with Polycom, Inc. This partnership will enable companies to have
full visibility and control of their business critical applications over their
networks. Ipanema Technologies has also demonstrated solution interoperability
with Polycom, Inc. (Nasdaq: PLCM), the global leader in open standards-based
unified communications and collaboration (UC&C).

Ipanema Technologies delivers automated application visibility, QoS and
control, WAN optimization, and dynamic WAN selection. It does all of this over
a company’s global network, whatever its size. All of these integrated
features collectively contribute to the success of delivering Polycom’s video
and voice solutions over the corporate network. With Ipanema, Polycom’s
network utilization can be:

  *Visible to the IT department. This means the impact of UC&C data streams
    can be fully understood by the IT service desk and communicated to
    business leaders with simple metrics, comprehensive KPIs and
    easy-to-understand quality scores. This is important for CIOs, Application
    Directors and IT Directors, helping them to understand how UC&C is
    performing across the corporate network.
  *Controlled effectively so that real-time data inside UC&C (like voice) are
    prioritized above less-critical applications (like file transfers).
    Additionally, Ipanema prevents dynamic video codecs from expanding beyond
    reasonable levels, ensuring that other critical applications (such as SAP
    or transactional systems) still function to the required SLA at any time.
  *Intelligently routed across the appropriate network when deployed with a
    hybrid Internet + MPLS network. Ipanema ensures an excellent user
    experience and provides access to the large bandwidth that UC&C requires,
    all at a reasonable cost.

Ipanema Technologies has satisfied Polycom’s extensive interoperability
requirements and has been certified as Polycom-Ready. Polycom-Ready solutions,
including end-user devices, network devices, and software applications are
tested for interoperability with Polycom products and applications. When
customers see solutions bearing the Polycom-Ready badge, they know they’ve
been proven to work with the world’s leading open standards-based UC&C

“We are pleased to work with Polycom to provide Application Performance
Guarantee solutions. As the importance of unified communications and
collaboration continues to grow, companies need assurance that they’ll receive
consistently high-quality video and voice. We’re excited that this partnership
will fully ensure that UC&C will be delivered smoothly and appropriately over
the customer’s network, helping to enhance business success and ensure a
consistent user experience,” said Béatrice Piquer-Durand, Vice-President
Marketing for Ipanema Technologies.

“Innovators like Ipanema Technologies enhance Polycom’s UC&C solutions by
delivering real value and reliable interoperability – and because of that,
Ipanema Technologies has earned Polycom-Ready certification,” said Steve
Pattison, Vice President of Business Development at Polycom. “Ipanema’s
Application Performance Guarantee solution provides real-time data streams
that are critical to increasing network efficiency as customers scale their
collaboration solutions.”
