What is Telepresence?
  • Cisco Telepresence is an advanced video conferencing system
  • Advantages over normal video conferencing:
    • Very low latency
    • Crisp video and audio quality
    • Directional sound
    • People appear life size
    • Allows for direct eye contact
the technology
The Technology
  • 1080p High Definition plasma screens (variations in size and price)
  • Each screen requires 2 to 3Mbps of bandwidth
  • Two 1Gb Ethernet ports must be in the room
  • Requires low latency network with QoS for voice
  • Call setup and connection is managed by the Cisco Call Manager backend (installed locally)
  • Uses HD cameras, many microphones and speakers, and special lighting arrays

What it Means for Business
  • Businesses with Cisco Telepresence can have live conferences with contacts all over the globe as if they were literally in the same room
  • Time-sensitive issues can be resolved quickly and easily with effective collaboration
  • High return on investment for the future
    • Lower travel expenses
    • Helps businesses to ”Go Green” due to reduction in travel, therefore cutting carbon pollution

What it Means for Cisco
  • Cisco is working on installing 100 Telepresence suites at their offices around the world
  • They expect to save $100 Million in travel expenses during the first year of deployment
  • Video conferencing equipment sales are expected to reach $1 Billion by 2011
  • An increase in router and switch sales and network upgrades are also expected
how much does it cost
How Much Does it Cost?
  • Currently, the cost for a single Telepresence suite is about $300,000
  • The cost for a ”small” Telepresence system (which is a single 65” plasma screen) is about $79,000
  • Cisco plans to bring Telepresence into homes within 2-3 years for about $1,000
  • With high prices, Telepresence is expected to be used only by very large companies

  • Even though Telepresence is primarily meant to improve the quality and effectiveness of remote collaboration within a business, it can also be used to interact directly with customers
conclusion
Conclusion
  • Cisco Telepresence takes video conferencing to a whole new level, allowing for unparalleled realism, which in turn makes remote collaboration more comfortable and effective
  • Despite high costs, the ROI of Telepresence is very high, most notably reducing travel costs
