CHANNEL PARTNERS — UCaaS provider Telesphere (Booth 3009) is celebrating its newest technology, MobileConnect, by unveiling a masterpiece aquarium while taking part in the production of the national Animal Planet reality show "Tanked."
"Tanked" is being filmed at the Telesphere booth today from 4–7 p.m. Come watch the big reveal and enjoy refreshments with "Tanked" co-stars Wayde King and Brett Raymer, while learning about Telesphere’s new UC cloud mobility platform. King and Raymer also will be signing autographs.
Telesphere’s eight-foot tall, telephone-themed aquarium, was designed to display the evolution from analog phones to unified cloud communications. Buried treasure of encased phone parts provides the backdrop for exotic fish that will inhabit the 300-gallon display. The finished episode of "Tanked" featuring Telesphere and MobileConnect will air in the spring. The aquarium will permanently reside in Telesphere’s lobby at corporate headquarters in Scottsdale, Ariz.
