AT&T offer a high quality, enterprise level audio, video and web conferencing solution. It can be deployed on your own infrastructure, hosted by AT&T or a combination of both is possible. It provides a huge range of features and supports small, within the company meetings or large webcasts for potential customers. AT&T is a major player in enterprise level conferencing solutions.
Whether you choose to deploy AT&T Connect on your own infrastructure or purchase the hosted package the wealth of features on offer is just the same. You get unlimited access to hosting any size of meeting for personnel within the company or customers from outside. Within a web meeting it is easy to share your whole desktop and the applications on it, share ideas using the whiteboard and switch between presenters easily. Plenty of other features are also available to support large scale "all hands" meetings and virtual training sessions.
For communications AT&T Connect supports integrated audio via VOIP or TDM and audio conferences can be run independently of web conferences - although it is easy to escalate to a web conference if necessary. Full support for video conferencing is also available and simultaneous broadcasts from large numbers of participants are possible.
As a product aimed at enterprise customers AT&T Connect provides enterprise level security features. End to end encryption on all communications is standard and a variety of different authentication mechanisms are available - as well as the ability to integrate with your own. The software can also integrate with any existing directory services that your company uses.
AT&T Connect is an enterprise level product and therefore not suited to smaller business users or casual users. However, it is a very powerful application and could prove very cost effective when compared to alternative solutions. The blended deployed/hosted solutions could be very useful for businesses with a large head office and many smaller offices and can greatly enhance productivity. To discuss which solution would be best for you AT&T have a highly trained sales team which are easily contactable.
