Breakout Session T2: Interoperability, Interconnection, and Sky-Rocketing Global Utility

Location: South Pacific 2

Organized by:

Telepresence Systems are not only becoming more natural and realistic, they are also becoming more interoperable with both telepresence solutions from disparate manufacturers, and other visual collaboration solutions alike. At the same time, telepresence and video networks (enterprise and carrier overlay/converged WAN) with QoS, low-latency, and high speeds, are connecting at telepresence. This, together with video exchanges which are handling IP address conflicts, security, and disparate QoS tags, allows for successful connection between organizations, their partners, vendors, and customers.

This growing interoperability and inter-connection, alongside directories, publicly available telepresence, and improved collaborative tools, is sending utility – what you can do and who you can reach, sky-rocketing!
