Printer Print Email Email
Bangalore: AT&T and BT announced today the commercial availability of the industry's first inter-provider exchange-to-exchange telepresence meeting capability. The new connection between AT&T and BT telepresence exchanges allow their business customers to schedule telepresence meetings and to connect their telepresence endpoints seamlessly.

With the new inter-provider telepresence capability, AT&T and BT customers can now meet 'face to face' from their Cisco TelePresence endpoints with an expanded network of customers and suppliers. AT&T and BT telepresence customers will enjoy a consistent service experience when using this new feature of their existing telepresence service.

Additionally, key features such as encrypted connections will be available and can be established for highly sensitive meetings to ensure both AT&T and BT customers enjoy the same high level of security as today's business-to-business telepresence meetings. In the future, AT&T and BT customers will also have access to a directory that will help them determine what other registered organizations and locations are accessible through the inter-provider connection.

Brian Washburn, Research Analyst at Current Analysis, said, "AT&T and BT's exchange-to-exchange connection marks a significant milestone in the industry. Exchange-to-exchange telepresence is a major stride forward in building smooth, end-to-end telepresence experiences for customers across network boundaries worldwide, and advancing Cisco's efforts to support inter-provider connectivity for telepresence."
