This week, BT Conferencing announced that it has been chosen by Cisco as an exclusive partner for inter-company telepresence in Europe. This joint agreement will allow BT and Cisco to provide ground-breaking business-to-business video conferencing services. BT Conferencing, the conferencing and collaboration services division of BT, will be the only operator in Europe to offer an inter-company Telepresence solution, which will be available from September 2008.
The BT and Cisco Telepresence Sales agreement builds on BT’s strong existing partnership with Cisco. BT Conferencing recently became the first service provider to complete the Cisco Telepresence Global Authorised Technology Provider (ATP) programme, ensuring BT is best placed to deploy its Unified Communication video proposition. Earlier this year, BT Conferencing announced that it has earned Cisco’s Global Certification status.
