Poly (NYSE:PLT) today announced that Télécom Paris, a leading French higher education institution, an Institut Mines-Télécom (IMT) school, and a founding member of Polytechnic Institute of Paris, has implemented a broad range of Poly unified communications (UC) solutions for digital transformation, and to connect 600 staff and 1,350 students across the institute’s Paris campus.
In 2019, Télécom Paris moved to a large, new 46,000 square meter building complex in IMT’s Saclay campus near Paris, and the school continued to provide distance learning to international students based in China, Japan, Russia, Senegal and more. The institute embarked upon a digital transformation journey to connect its students and staff, no matter where they happen to be located, and to enable hybrid learning. The digital transformation challenge was two-fold: to connect students and staff within the large campus, and to connect international students with the local staff remotely. It was important that the solution was interoperable with all other technology being used at the institute to avoid technical setbacks for ongoing online lectures, coursework allocation, and administrative staff meetings.
Poly Group 500 systems are used for the smaller rooms/spaces, and Poly Group 700 systems, with a cascading array of Poly EagleEye Director II cameras, equip the larger spaces, such as boardrooms and auditoriums. A wide range of other Poly solutions, software, and accessories brings everything together for Télécom Paris.
