In Pictures: 10 competitors Cisco couldn’t kill of...
There's arguably no company that did more good for Polycom than Cisco. Cisco's acquisition of Tandberg was supposed to kill off the niche video vendor, correct? That didn't happen, and Cisco's incidentally created a rising tide for both companies. Initially, Polycom wasn't able to do much with the opportunity created by Cisco. In 2010, though, Polycom gutted its management team and CEO Andy Miller re-tooled the company to compete. Some smart people and good execution on Polycom's part, combined with some slow product cycles on Cisco’s part, allowed Polycom to grab some market share.
