SLOUGH, U.K. -- Polycom Inc®., the world’s leading provider of unified collaborative communications solutions, today announced that David Davies, Assembly Member and Member of Parliament for Monmouth, officially opened Polycom’s state-of-the-art Semi Anechoic Chamber, an echoless chamber for measuring levels of radio interference, at its Technical Compliance testing facility located in Monmouth, Wales on Friday 18 November.

“As the demand for Polycom conferencing and collaboration solutions grows across the globe, it is imperative that our products continue to comply with all mandated electronic standards worldwide,” said John Pearson, Director, International Compliance for Polycom. “Polycom is renowned for its innovation in video communications and the investment in this new Semi Anechoic Chamber will help us bring innovations to market faster. Our echoless chamber ensures we meet international standards since it is both calibrated for the emissive measurement requirements of all of the major global standards authorities including Canada, USA, EU, South Africa, China, Japan Australia, New Zealand, Korea and India and is also accredited so the results are acceptable to those authorities.”

With its own state of the art and accredited testing facility, Polycom is no longer dependent upon certification being carried out at external laboratories. “Polycom’s Semi Anechoic Chamber is a huge competitive advantage as it enables us to carry out crucial radio interference testing internally, which will help us save an average of 6-10 weeks per country on the design cycle,” explained Pearson.

“I was delighted to open Polycom’s new testing facility. Polycom’s commitment to Wales began with the establishment of Polycom’s Corporate Technical Compliance Department in Monmouth in 1997,” said David Davies. “More and more companies are choosing to locate their facilities where it makes economic sense and Polycom is a great example of an international organisation using its own solutions – voice and video conferencing - to shrink time and distance and make Wales the centre for its testing facilities worldwide.”
