Cisco On Board With Natl Remote Meeting Tech Plan; Natin Kawale Comments

cisco_executivebizCisco‘s Canada business supports the Canadian government’s move to adopt technology in facilitating remote meetings, similar to video conferencing systems.

The government is aiming to reduce the amount of time public sector employees spend traveling to work, according to a federal budget document Cisco cited in its release.

Cisco’s Telepresence technology is intended to give participants access to life-size, full-motion video.

“The nature of work and Canada’s next-generation workforce needs are changing,” said Natin Kawale, president of Cisco’s Canada business.

Kawale added technologies like Telepresence aim to help worker teams in the country and worldwide meet and collaborate as if they are in the same room.

Earlier this month, the company announced it helped launch a project in Jordan for medical personnel to use Telepresence in exchanging information.
