I can't actually offer AT&T resources without getting some level of
management approval first, but just for the sake of discussion here's
some info about the telepresence system we use.

ATS B2B Telepresence conferences can be conducted with an external company's
Telepresence room(s), which subscribe to the AT&T Telepresence Solution,
or a limited number of other Telepresence service provider's networks.

Currently, the number of Telepresence rooms that can participate in a B2B
conference is limited to a combined total of 20 rooms (19 of which can be
AT&T rooms, depending on the number of remote endpoints included).

We currently have B2B interconnect with over 100 companies and AT&T has
telepresence rooms in many of our locations around the US and around
the world. If other large OpenStack companies also have telepresence
rooms that we could interconnect with I think it might be possible
to get management agreement to hold a couple OpenStack meetups per

Most of our rooms are best suited for 6 people, but I know of at least
one 18 person telepresence room near me.
