On-Stage TelePresence First Middle East Debut at Cisco Networkers Bahrain 2010

One of the exciting events we had happening at Cisco Networkers Bahrain was the live keynote session, this event featured Cisco’s Executive Vice President of Cisco Services and Chief Globalization Officer, Wim Elfrink, joined by His Excellency Sheikh Ahmed bin Atteyat Allah Al-Khalifa, Minister of Cabinet Affairs, Government of Bahrain and for the first time in the Middle East, Cisco’s Senior Vice President of Emerging Technologies, Marthin De Beer, but Marthin was not in the Middle East yesterday, he was in San Jose.

So you may ask how did Marthin join the gentleman onstage? Well that is the sight that everyone could not wait to see, Marthin joined onstage via three-dimensional TelePresence.

Thousands of attendees have made their way over to the Cisco Keynote tent to see this amazing keynote as well as thousands will be signed on to Cisco Live and Networkers Virtual to also watch this live streaming.
