Polycom's CEO says the company has gained marketshare from rival Cisco/Tandberg. Polycom is expected to enter the consumer and small business video conferencing space soon.
The so-called unified collaboration market -- of voice, video and web -- is a subset of the unified communications market that brings together real time instant messaging and videoconferencing with non-real time e-mail and text messaging.
Miller reckons the total addressable unified collaboration market, excluding digital telephony over the Internet, is worth about $5.2 billion.
Shares of Pleasanton, California-based Polycom have almost doubled since mid-October.
