BAE Systems to deploy AT&T Telepresence system

To provide an in-person meeting experience with teams across the US and the UK

By CBR Staff Writer

BAE Systems Land and Armaments, an operating group within BAE Systems, a UK-based defense and aerospace contractor, is enhancing its global collaboration and productivity with AT&T’s Telepresence system.

Under a new $5m, three-year contract with AT&T, BAE Systems Land & Armaments will use the AT&T Telepresence system to provide an in-person meeting experience with leadership teams and engineering teams across the US and the UK. This capability will be expanded to Sweden, South Africa and other regions in the future, according to AT&T.

In addition, with AT&T fully managing the system to include in-room equipment, installation, full monitoring and management of the application, network provisioning, remote help desk service and on-site equipment maintenance and repair, BAE Systems Land and Armaments will not have to assign and allocate additional resources for support activities.

Ronald Spears, president and CEO of AT&T Business Solutions, said: AT&T’s Telepresence Solution offers a secure, in-person Cisco TelePresence meeting experience that is ultimately transforming how enterprises communicate and collaborate with their employees, customers and partners around the world.
