The video component is increasingly important in any Unified Communications implementation that takes into account the evolving way we communicate. And while videoconferencing may get the job done, telepresence is where video needs to be for the most effective, almost-like-being-in-the-room, meetings.
That’s why Sprint’s relationship with Tata Communications is worth noting here. Enterprise customers can now take advantage of a broad range of Managed Telepresence services, from Tata Communications, via Sprint’s Global MPLS network.
With Managed Telepresence, enterprises can get that lifelike, high-def conferencing that we’ve all been looking for since those early videoconferencing systems hit the market some two decades ago. This enables enterprises to take advantage of the technology without the sizable capital cost of putting in their own telepresence rooms.
The way it works is that Sprint Telepresence customers can seamlessly connect to the Tata Global Meeting Exchange, which has the distinction of being one of the broadest public and private telepresence networks accessible today. The Exchange is also a gateway to a public room network covering 31 cities across five continents. In addition, Tatacustomers can now connect to telepresence rooms on the Sprint MPLS network.
The idea is to bring a rich collaboration experience to Sprint customers, allowing them to leverage the tool and its superior audio and video qualities, for meetings with employees, customers, and suppliers via the Global MPLS network.And, of course, to allow enterprises to more fully incorporate video into their whole UC strategy.
