IEEE ComSoc SCV Meeting on Telepresence and Cisco's Emerging Tech Group

Charles Stucki, VP and GM of Cisco’s TelePresence Business Unit, provided an excellent overview of Cisco’s Emerging Technology Group (ETG), with an emphasis on its first product- the Telepresence video conferencing for enterprise customers (and for Cisco’s internal use). Confirming our earlier supposition about telecom companies concentrating on content, Chuck stated that Cisco was looking at Application layer technologies, such as video, rather then infrastructure technologies within its ETG.
