Telepresence Solutions for Public Sector

Governments around the world are faced with the challenge of addressing limited resources, the need for real-time collaboration and broad geographic reach. Cisco TelePresence solutions can help governments address these challenges by enhancing citizen services, simplifying collaboration with vendors and contractors, improving inter and intra-agency communications and reducing travel. The Cisco TelePresence portfolio integrates easily with existing network infrastructure and productivity tools, creating a transparent video experience. Interoperability with other video conference platforms, voice and data systems helps ensure maximum return on investment, making the most of personnel and financial resources. Cisco TelePresence can play an important role in reinventing government services and the way government runs.

Featured Case Study: United Nations (COP15)

When the United Nations (UN) selected the Danish Government as host of the Climate Change Conference, the Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs prioritized two objectives. First, this had to be the most accessible and inclusive conference ever, cutting across geographical, cultural, financial, and political boundaries. Second, and equally important, they wanted to create the most carbon-efficient climate conference to date. They had to "walk the talk." See how Cisco TelePresence was at the heart of the solution.
