BITS Pilani deploys Cisco TelePresence technology
TT Correspondent |  |  28 Mar 2013

Cisco has said that Birla Institute of Technology and Science (BITS) Pilani, one of India’s premier independent universities, along with BITSAA International, its global alumni community, have successfully deployed the immersive, high-definition CiscoTelePresencevideoconferencing and Cisco WebExtechnologies as part of a cross-campus technology initiative named BITSConnect 2.0.

This would be the largest and first-of-its-kind deployment in India to increase collaboration, foster innovation, enhance productivity, and streamline administration.

Set to transform the learning experience through unparalleled campus-connectivity, this platform is aimed at creating a dynamic and collaborative learning environment by connecting classrooms through a MPLS –based data network.

Custom-built using Cisco TelePresence technology, the new virtual lecture facility will offer immersive, high-definition visual communications, enabling all students, regardless of location, to collaborate and participate as if they were in the same room as one another and their professor. The initiative will benefit over 11,000 students and 700 teachers and provide them with access to business leaders and guest lecturers located around the globe, enabling collaborative research and interactive learning a routine part of their lives.

Bijendra Nath Jain, vice-chancellor, BITS Pilani, said;” “BITSConnect 2.0, which is built on Cisco technology, comes at a time when the Institute is on its way to become a top research-led university in Asia. This joint University-Alumni initiative will provide seamless integration of all campuses; create new avenues of research collaboration and knowledge sharing among faculty, students and researchers worldwide. BITSConnect 2.0 initiative will further strengthen industry

Minhaj Zia, director, Collaboration Sales, Cisco India & SAARC said, “ “BITS Pilani is one of the leading institutes in India focused on imparting quality education and creating a distinctive environment for research and innovation. While they have been on the cutting-edge of technology use for years, this initiative is taking that to a new level and will foster new methods of collaboration, enrich the in-class experience, and help better utilize school resources.”
