International network operator glbc had a virtual trade show going on today, the subject of which was collaboration and conferencing - sort of a virtual conference about virtual conferencing. To go along with it, the company this morning announced connectivity to some 4,000 executive video suites across the world, which include more than 500 hi-def public video conference rooms and 400 court reporting facilities. That's a rather nice footprint to start off with.
Those rooms come via an expanded agreement with Affinity VideoNet, which provides such rooms worldwide, and fits nicely with their relationship with telepresence provider Teliris announced in late July. Global Crossing's pursuit of the nascent telepresence market reflects their emphasis on large multinational clients. I remain curious to see just when the revenues from telepresence across the sector will reflect the amount of attention it is getting.
