Today’s mobile warrior relies on a portable to stay in touch. Whether you work on a laptop, tablet or smartphone, video conferencing away from the office should not be, well… hard work.
AT&T wants to take the “task” out of multitasking, announcing an expansion of video features and on-demand meeting capabilities for its AT&T Telepresence Solution. The new features will make video conferencing on any device as easy as making a phone call.
These enhancements also allow users to conduct face-to-face meetings—even ones not registered on the AT&T Business Exchange. Other new features include virtual meeting rooms and guest access enhancements.
The best part is that customers can join into meetings anytime from anywhere and on almost any device, whether it’s a laptop, desktop computer, or select mobile devices. AT&T says that compatible video applications include the Cisco Jabber Video for TelePresence, Polycom RealPresence Mobile, Logitech’s LifeSize ClearSea, and other standards-based video clients using Wi-Fi hot spots, 3G, 4G and 4G/LTE wireless connections (where available). That type of compatibility and access makes it even easier for customers to meet, connect and get down to business.
“These new AT&T Telepresence Solution enhancements help make video conferencing more useful,” said Brian Washburn, research director of Network Services, Current Analysis. “These features cut across different video devices, vendors, and calls types to bring ease and simplicity to the end user experience.”
AT&T is also expanding its hosted call control capabilities, offering additional service bundles, and more. For more info, check out AT&T’s Telepresence Solution.
