Very soon the Microsoft Lync Optimized Polycom CX5100 Unified Conference Station will be available at VoIP Supply.
We’re expecting to see these by the end of September 2013.
Unveiled at the 2013 Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference, the CX5100 is for Microsoft Lync users collaborating with remote teams.
What they’ll get is a unique 360 degree, panoramic video experience that also displays a seamless dual window layout.

When next day shipping isn’t fasn’t enough, VoIP Supply now offers Rush Processing for VoIP, Video Conferencing, IP Surveillance, and Unified Communication devices.
When you’re checking out online, all you need to do is check the “Need your order faster?” box or, if you’re on the phone with your account manager, just ask them for “Rush Processing.”
Here’s how it works — VoIP Supply will speed up shipment:
- On all orders placed before 3:30pm EST
- For a small, additional fee
- When the billing and shipping address are the same.
VoIP Supply always puts forth its best efforts, but unfortunately cannot guarantee that orders will ship the same day.
Patience is annoying but sometimes necessary, so in the event a rush order fails to ship on …

I am not talking about the layer of dust over everything that rivals a mid-winter snow storm, the fact it is one of the last Fridays in the summer and I’m at work, or the two phones on my desk but, …
