BT signed an agreement to connect global offices of Nestlé, a leading global nutrition, health and wellness company, using the next-generation high-end video conferencing services.

Under the terms of the agreement, BT will deliver to Nestlé a fully-managed video conferencing service comprised of Cisco TelePresence technology running on BT’s global Multi Protocol Label Switching (MPLS) network. The deal also includes complete on-going support using BT’s Video Business Unit (VBU) Concierge service.

The solution, which will initially connect Nestlé’s global hubs, uses high-definition video and multi-dimensional sound to offer a high quality videoconferencing experience. The system gives users the feeling of being in the same room as the other participants, whether those participants happen to be on the other side of town or the other side of the world.

Further to improving international meeting efficiency, Nestlé expects the new system will help the company reduce travel costs and improve productivity through improved collaboration between geographically dispersed teams.

Olivier Campenon, BT President, EMEA said: “We are delighted to be able to help Nestlé make substantial savings on travel costs. This latest project with Nestlé is a further proof of the strong relationship we have built over the years, connecting the company’s operations in far flung places around the world.”
