New Delhi, India: BT and Cisco today announced that PepsiCo,
one of the world’s largest food and beverage companies, will be
deploying Cisco TelePresence systems across PepsiCo’s major offices
worldwide. The technology includes fully managed �concierge-level�
services from BT, including inter company capabilities that will help
enable cross-company
collaboration between PepsiCo and key distributors and
retailers.

Cisco TelePresence systems create immersive virtual meeting
experiences that make participants feel as though they are in the same
room though they may be thousands of miles apart. This combination of
high-definition video and spatial audio provides an alternative to
in-person meetings.

�This new collaboration strategy with BT and Cisco will
reinvent the way we work,� said Robert Dixon, senior vice president and
global chief information officer for PepsiCo.
  “Global virtual meeting collaboration will enable us to
travel less, which will allow for greater productivity and a smaller
environmental footprint. In this day and age, it’s simply a smarter way
of going about our business.�

�We look forward to providing PepsiCo with an easy-to-use,
reliable, cost-effective TelePresence experience,� said Michael
Boustridge, president, BT Global Services Multi-National Corporations.
�This game-changing technology provides live, face-to-face virtual
interaction that allows people from different locations to come
together and collaborate as if they were all seated in the same room.
This contract builds on BT’s existing relationship with PepsiCo, which
we look forward to expanding worldwide, leveraging BT’s global reach.�
