AT&T, BT, Tata dial up first inter-carrier telepresence call

AT&T, BT, and Tata Communications have conducted the first international, inter-carrier, inter-company multi-point telepresence call over Cisco Systems gear. The call involved telepresence systems at AT&T locations in Bedminster and Morristown, N.J., and Chicago, Ill.; a BT location in Colorado Springs, Colo.; a Cisco site in San Francisco; and Tata sites in Boston and London. There has been much talk of inter-company telepresence as being a key to greater success for such services, and this inter-carrier demonstration further broadens the utility of telepresence.
