UC and Telepresence

How will the advent of  telepresence affect incumbent UC  solutions ?   Telepresence is likely to be viewed as a  node  in the UC tree.  Unfortunately bandwidth requirements are impeding the large scale adoption of TP solutions  by SME’s – these firms are only now adopting the ubiquitous nature of the UC solution as integral to their business models.  So expecting them to jump to the TP bandwagon would be presumptuous if not mistimed.  When video within the UC model itself is not as popular as the integration of  email and voice, it may take some time for the TP  solutions to be seen as mainstream.   We have got accustomed to hearing folks on telephone lines as opposed to observing their body language on a video screen in all our meetings and conferences.  We may have to get used to enjoying the latter – these solutions are here to stay.
