Cisco TelePresence Adds Support for NTT's User Network Interface

Cisco has added support for NTT's user network interface (UNI) to Cisco IOS Software , enabling Cisco routers and switches to connect directly to NTT's UNI. The Cisco TelePresence system can now be added to commercial NGN services offered by NTT East and NTT West.

The companies said business communications can more easily take place between companies using the same NTT service, while Cisco TelePresence use can be tracked via metered billing.

Cisco TelePresence can be used as a guaranteed bandwidth application service called "Hikari Telephone Office Type" that can be subscribed to by users of "Flets Hikari Next Business Type," for which NTT East and NTT West are scheduled to begin service in October 2008.
