Sprint has some new managed telepresence service offerings for its enterprise customers after forming a new partnership with Tata Communications.

Under the deal, Tata will be responsible for providing its existing managed telepresence technology for HD video conferencing with "superior audio, video and environmental qualities" that should be almost lifelike.

Although nothing is quite the same as an in-person meeting (just wait these companies try to bring 3D into the picture), these tools are becoming ever better and increasingly important for enterprise. And naturally, there's always the green angle that this saves on emissions from air and car travel.

Tata will also be roping in its Global Meeting Exchange gateway, which is a public and private telepresence network that is accessible from 31 cities in five continents.

Sprint comes in not just as the more well-known brand on the package but also with its Sprint's Global MPLS network that will power these managed telepresence features.
