INX to Provide Cisco TelePresence Solutions

March 26, 2008 | Chris Payatagool

inxlogo.gifHOUSTON -- INX Inc., announced today that it has been recognized as an Advanced Technology Provider of Cisco's TelePresence meeting solution.

INX announced today that it has been recognized by Cisco Systems as a Cisco TelePresence Advanced Technology Provider. Cisco TelePresence is an enterprise video conferencing solution that creates life-like communications experiences using state-of-the-art multiple high-definition video images and spatial discrete audio. As an advanced technology solution, TelePresence reaches beyond video conferencing to real collaboration that allows for face-to-face virtual business interactions regardless of location.


With advances in technology and increasing globalization in today's markets, organizations are seeking to establish advantageous economical business operations worldwide. To compete in this fast-paced business environment, high quality interaction and collaboration with co-workers, partners, and customers all over the world is critical. TelePresence enables communications and collaboration over the IP network with colleagues, prospects, and partners, whether they are in different states, countries, or hemispheres.

Regarding the announcement, Jon Groves, Vice President of Professional Services for INX stated, "Business communication demands are dramatically increasing for every organization. The ability to effectively communicate and collaborate in person is not always an economical or logistical option. Cisco TelePresence provides a life-like, face-to-face virtual experience that enhances business communications at a substantially lower cost as compared to business travel for in-person meetings."

A Gartner Study entitled Comparing Videoconferencing Telepresence Systems, September 2006 stated, "The obvious gains of reductions in travel time and travel costs [from TelePresence] may, in fact, be far outweighed by potential gains in increased productivity, efficiency, time to market and other factors."

Mark Hilz, President and COO for INX stated, "We believe Cisco's TelePresence solution is a viable, cost-effective method of improving business communications for enterprise organizations in today’s increasingly global marketplace. TelePresence is a part of the growing use of video by enterprises as a part of their overall unified communications infrastructure to create a more robust, feature-rich, collaborative communications experience. This growing use of video is just one more driver of IP network change and increased network load, solidifying our belief that demand for enterprise organization network upgrades will continue far into the future. We expect that growing demand for Cisco’s TelePresence meeting solutions and a limited number of authorized Cisco TelePresence Advanced Technology Providers will create increased revenue opportunities for INX."
