This face-to-face experience will help our customers improve employee productivity, strengthen relationships, and reduce travel costs," said Don Perkins, vice president of Business Marketing at Windstream.

LifeSize high definition video communications products will be coupled with Windstream's IP networking solutions. Windstream offers Ethernet and dedicated high-speed Internet services, as well as a full suite of advanced network communications and technology solutions such as VoIP, SIP trunking, and MPLS.
