Tata Communications has announced that it will introduce telepresence exchange services for Cisco TelePresence, an expansion of its telepresence services.
The Global Meeting Exchange will support meetings between any connected private and public Cisco TelePresence rooms, said Tata.
Tata Communications’s telepresence services include managed private Cisco TelePresence rooms, public TelePresence rooms that can be rented by the hour, and the ability for these private and public rooms to connect with each other. To reliably and cost-effectively support global business-to-business (B2B) connectivity, Tata’s Global Meeting Exchange will have major telepresence service points of presence (PoPs) in Mumbai, New York, and London and minor points of presence co-resident in Tata’s global MPLS PoPs in major cities around the world, according to Tata.
Peter Quinlan, director of managed telepresence services at Tata Communications, said: The Global Meeting Exchange will conveniently support B2B sessions amongst any connected private and public Cisco TelePresence rooms. This pioneering global service framework pushes telepresence from being a private intra-company experience to support the strong demand for inter-company sessions.
