Qtel Launches Qatar's First-Ever Public Cisco TelePresence Suite at Sheraton Doha Hotel
Posted on Monday, December 19, 2011

DOHA, Qatar- 18, December, 2011:  Qtel recently unveiled the first public Cisco TelePresence® suite in Qatar located within the five-star Sheraton Doha Resort & Convention Hotel.

The result of a collaboration between Tata Communications and Cisco, the pay-per-hour telepresence meeting suite provides participants a life-sized, high-definition and immersive virtual experience that emulates an in-person meeting.

The new telepresence facility will be available for hire 24 hours a day, and the solution will enable local business people in Qatar to virtually connect with partners, customers and colleagues across the world.

Highlights / Key Facts

  • Delivering a live, immersive, face-to-face experience, Qtel's Telepresence Suite allows customers to conduct meetings around the world from the comfort of the Sheraton Doha. The new state-of-the-art suite, the first in Qatar that is open to the public, sees Qtel Business Solutions work with Cisco and Tata Communications, to develop a specially designed telepresence solution for Qatari businesses that need to connect with the world.
  • The new service will link Qatar to any public or private telepresence rooms within the Tata Communications Global Meeting Exchange network, one of the broadest and widest-reaching telepresence networks available today. The room will also be a gateway to Tata Communications' public room telepresence network, which spans 36 rooms across five continents. This network reach makes telepresence a truly global communication tool.
  • The Qtel Telepresence Suite at the Sheraton Doha will be located on the ground floor alongside the exclusive business facilities. An hourly rate of QR2200 will be charged for full use of the service and can be booked via Qtel or the Sheraton business service.
