- High definition, immersive video conferencing technology enables global businesses collaboration
- Agreement connects T-Systems' Cross Company Exchange Service to Tata Communications' Global Meeting Exchange™ Telepresence inter-exchange network
T-Systems, a subsidiary of Deutsche Telekom, extends the global reach of its Telepresence offering through an interoperability agreement with Tata Communications. T-Systems' connection to Tata Communications enables virtual face-to-face collaboration between customers on each respective network, providing customers of both organisations with open access to connect across a much broader business video ecosystem.
Tata Communications' Global Meeting Exchange™ Telepresence inter-exchange network is one of the broadest and widest-reaching Telepresence networks available today. This network has connectivity to all Tata Communications' private Telepresence rooms as well as the customers of service providers with whom it has inter-exchange connectivity agreements in place, and vice versa. Tata Communications' Global Meeting Exchange ™ Telepresence inter-exchange network also serves as a gateway to its public room Telepresence network with nearly 50 rooms across five continents.
T-Systems' Cross Company Exchange Service allows customers of the Deutsche Telekom Group to cross-connect their global Video and Telepresence Systems and have effective and immersive video meetings, reducing the reliance on business travel, that can become costly. T-Systems provides a leading-edge Corporate Video Platform with an innovative booking portal to allow seamless integration of corporate video technology into today's busy business environment.
The network connecting T-Systems and Tata Communications provides first-rate, high quality, audio and video with upload and download speeds of up to 50 Mbit/s, as well as maximum security, with full encryption of all data traffic between conference participants.
Telepresence replicates face-to-face interactions so realistically that it feels as though participants are in the same room, even though they might be thousands of miles apart. Using business video technology to replace in-person meetings makes collaboration among employees, customers, suppliers and business partners more efficient and economical, reducing travel time and costs, while also minimising carbon emissions associated with business travel.
