Noting that Telepresence offered a more engaging video conference with cutting-edge technology, RailTel's network, planning and marketing director A. Seshagiri Rao said the service was designed with no capital investment and obsolescence risk.

"RailTel has a PAN India MPLS (multiprotocol label switching) network and our Telepresence runs over the network," Rao added.
