SYDNEY -- In an Australian first, Telstra today launched Business to Business TelePresence, giving Australian organisations the ability to collaborate with each other using Telstra's Cisco TelePresence Managed Service.

Telstra Business to Business Cisco TelePresence means organisations will be able to bring other businesses together in a single, face to face, virtual meeting room, as opposed to intracompany Cisco TelePresence collaboration within the boundaries of one organisation.

Paul McManus, Executive Director of National Sales for Telstra Enterprise & Government said the new Business to Business TelePresence service operated on the Telstra Next IP™ network and would help organisations further reduce travel costs, shorten cycle time, improve decision making and help reduce their carbon footprint.

"Business to Business TelePresence is set to provide a real productivity boost to Australian organisations, as they will now be able to communicate via Telstra Cisco TelePresence with their customer networks, partners and supply chain and use the service to make decisions faster, reduce costs, simplify collaboration and importantly help to meet sustainability targets," Mr McManus said. "The ability to use ultra-high definition video will accelerate these benefits even further."

David Barker, Director of the Telstra Alliance for Cisco, said: "We are very pleased to be working closely with Telstra to enable more businesses to effortlessly connect with customers, partners and suppliers from all over the country in a way that feels like participants are across the table. Cisco TelePresence enables organisations to improve productivity and reduce expenses while at the same time enabling them to collaborate without boundaries and improve business innovation."
