Bestel Inaugurates Its Public Telepresence Service with Cisco Support
Posted on Monday, July 9, 2012

 The Mexican telecommunications company Bestel has choosen Cisco TelePresenceTM for the Bestel Public TelePresence Room Service. Cisco TelePresence enables an immersive face-to-face experience over the network, allowing meeting attendees to feel as if they were all in the same room, even if they are miles apart, thus enriching collaboration.

In Bestel's Public TelePresence Room Service, the solution will be implemented via the Cisco TelePresence System 3010, which combines three immersive life-size screens, offering ultra-high-definition video (1080p) and spatial audio, a specially designed environment with interactive elements that create the feeling of being "physically present" with participants in remote locations. The room is created to host up to 18 attendees in two rows of participants, 6 in the front row and 12 in a second row.

To complete the collaboration experience, Bestel's Public TelePresence Room Service allows the attendees to share information through the displays and screens inside the room. The Cisco TelePresence Manger software managesCisco Unified Communications Manager, which shares the schedule of meetings through a calendar invitation.

Corporations, public and private institutions, governments, schools, and many other entities of all sizes are usingCisco TelePresence technology to reduce costs, improve productivity and transform business processes. "Decisions that had to wait several weeks can now be taken in hours, and costs can be significantly reduced. People can save several hours per week, increasing productivity and work/life balance," said Rogelio Velasco, general manager of Cisco Systems de Mexico.
