AT&T launched a new Telepresence demonstration facility in Shanghai.  This is the 15th AT&T owned Telepresence facility in Asia Pacific and first in China. The Shanghai Telepresence room is connected with over 180 AT&T Telepresence rooms and over 100 partner rooms around the world through AT&T Business Exchange.


This Shanghai Telepresence room rides on AT&T Virtual Private Network solution provided by Shanghai Symphony Telecommunications (SST), a joint venture among AT&T, China Telecom and Shanghai Information Investment.  During a customer launch event on Nov 21, AT&T demonstrated Virtual Meeting Rooms, using smart phones, tablets and PC to dial into the meeting from different locations in different countries.


About AT&T Virtual Meeting Rooms


AT&T Virtual Meeting Rooms is an affordable reservationless, multipoint video meeting solution.  With AT&T Virtual Meeting Rooms users can get meeting flexibility by bringing the ad-hoc, on-demand approach into a group meeting setting.  Instead of reserving resources in advance, everyone simply dials to the meeting from VPN, Internet, Wi-Fi or 4G/LTE networks.  Virtual meeting rooms give your participants the flexibility to join from:

•Any of the over 4,000 endpoints registered with the AT&T Business Exchange

• Single screen (both H.323 and SIP) endpoints on your VPN, the Internet or mobile networks and multi-screen endpoints registered to the AT&T Business Exchange

• Desktop/laptop and select mobile devices using video applications like the Cisco Jabber™ Video for Telepresence; Polycom® Realpresense® Mobile; Lifesize® Clear Sea™ from Logitech

•Microsoft Lync clients


AT&T Virtual Meeting Rooms is available in 6, 10, 20, 30, 40 and 50 port and beyond. With AT&T Virtual Meeting Rooms your customers will be charged only a fixed monthly recurring charge for the port capacity. For access over the internet there are no usage charges.  The Virtual Meeting Rooms can either be assigned to a single employee or used by a corporate as  a shared resource, thereby reducing the overall total cost of ownership (TCO) of the solution.


Typical AT&T Virtual Meeting Rooms Applications

• C-level executive wants “always on” video meeting capability for instances where a scheduled meeting is not practical

• The IT department wants a pool of emergency overflow video ports they can assign to users to quickly overcome any issues with a scheduled meeting

• Project teams need to meet frequently but they don’t work in locations that can justify room-based systems

• Video power users need the flexibility of on-demand meetings
