Verizon and Tata Communications Expand Global Telepresence

Verizon and Tata Communications reached an agreement to link their telepresence services. The agreement enables meetings to take place between Verizon's telepresence customers and any public or private telepresence room on the Tata Communications Global Meeting Exchange, which is one of the broadest telepresence networks accessible today and a gateway to the company's public room network spanning 31 cities on five continents.

Verizon and Tata Communications customers currently can use Cisco TelePresence to conduct intercarrier telepresence meetings. Plans are under way to establish similar agreements with other immersive video providers and services to further expand the availability of telepresence.http://www.verizon.com
