Cisco (CSCO) China will deploy the Cisco TelePresence System on Chinese Web portal Sina.com's services to create an in-person communication experience for its online interview program with guests around China.
Cisco says Sina.com will be the first web portal globally to use the virtual meeting solution to transform the way that its online video interviews are conducted, and the Chinese company will deploy the service at its studios in Beijing, Shanghai, and Guangzhou. More than 100 customers in over 40 countries have already deployed Cisco TelePresence technology, according to a statement from the company.
"We are pleased to bring the 'in-person' communications experience to SINA Corp's online interview program with the Cisco TelePresence solution," said Sue Bostrom, executive vice president and chief marketing officer for Cisco. "Cisco is dedicated to bringing innovative experiences to the human network of Internet users in China by changing the way people communicate and collaborate with networking solutions."
