The telco today announced the commercial availability of a first end-to-end Telstra / Cisco TelePresence Managed Service solution – a ‘one-click’ in-person collaboration experience delivered over the Australia-wide Telstra Next IP network, according to the company.
Telstra says the Cisco TelePresence solution will give organisations an alternative to travelling long distances for meetings across Australia or overseas as it creates an environment for up to 6 people at each end utilising immersive, purpose built meeting rooms. This gives the experience of feeling you are sitting across the table from participants at other locations.
It can therefore, says Telstra, deliver significant benefits such as improved time management, cost savings and productivity gains, as well as help in reducing carbon emissions.
David Thodey, Group Managing Director, Telstra Enterprise and Government said, “This new Telstra Cisco TelePresence solution will open up many possibilities as it allows real time and real life interaction between people in different locations potentially thousands of kilometres apart”.
