ZURICH -- Quick reactions are essential in the modern business world. Companies' interest in using videoconferencing systems as a way of saving time and money on meetings is on the rise. With the addition of TelePresence and Live Meeting, Swisscom now offers two systems which together cover the various different needs of business customers. Stable networks and high bandwidths are prerequisites for these new methods of collaboration.

The Cisco TelePresence conferencing system makes it possible to hold meetings - even across large distances - where participants have the feeling that they are sitting together at one table. HD-quality cameras and large monitors display the other participants as large as life. Nonverbal communication - facial expressions and gestures - are just as effective as in a real meeting.

Video conferences are held in specially-equipped rooms to ensure the right acoustics and lighting for high-definition transmissions. This kind of quality also necessitates IP connections which provide guaranteed bandwidths of up to 20 Mbps. A variety of systems are available for meetings of all sizes, from one-on-one conversations to group meetings with up to 18 participants per location. Swisscom has Cisco TelePresence rooms in Berne, Zurich and Milan.
