AT&T and BT have announced the commercial availability of an inter-provider exchange-to-exchange telepresence meeting capability. The new connection between AT&T and BT telepresence exchanges allows their business customers to schedule telepresence meetings and to connect their telepresence endpoints seamlessly.

With the new inter-provider telepresence capability, AT&T and BT customers can meet “face to face” from their Cisco TelePresence endpoints with an expanded network of customers and suppliers. Last summer, customers piloted this capability and successfully conducted numerous meetings between AT&T and BT telepresence locations.

Features such as encrypted connections will be available and can be established for highly sensitive meetings. In the future, AT&T and BT customers will also have access to a directory that will help them determine what other registered organizations and locations are accessible through the inter-provider connection.
