SANTA CRUZ, Calif. -- July 1, 2014

Joe Burton, CTO and executive vice president of Plantronics (NYSE:PLT), was
recently named a WebRTC pioneer by the organizers of WebRTC Conference & Expo.
WebRTC Pioneer Award recipients were selected based on their visionary
contributions to the rapid growth of WebRTC, the browser-to-browser
communications technology being used in innovative business applications for
improved customer service and collaboration.

"One could argue that Plantronics has been in the business of 'WebRTC' long
before there was a defined industry,” said Dave Rodriguez, president, TMC.
“Under Joe Burton's leadership, Plantronics has been a pioneer in delivering
communications devices and solutions that create seamless interaction over any
network between people anywhere on the globe. On behalf of the entire WebRTC
World and WebRTC Conference & Expo teams, I can say that no recipient was more
deserving of this honor than Joe."

Burton’s innovations team, led by Cary Bran, vice president, Innovation and
New Ventures, were the first to develop and release source code to integrate
headset functionality for WebRTC environments, including call control and
contextual data such as proximity and state information.
