Savvis to Deploy Telanetix Telepresence Platform

Telanetix, an IP solutions provider offering telepresence and VoIP services to business markets, has announced an agreement to supply IT infrastructure provider, Savvis, with its Digital Presence telepresence platform.

Savvis will connect its St Louis headquarters to its London location. Savvis has designed with Telanetix the high bandwidth network services required to obtain the full value of the Telanetix Telepresence system.

Ron Dobes, vice president and general manager of network products and services at Savvis, said: "By working with Telanetix, we've created an environment where our teams in St Louis will be able to work more seamlessly with our London team, using our familiar everyday tools and workflow. This not only leads to increased productivity, but also a decrease in monies otherwise spent coordinating those efforts beforehand."
