Mobile Collaboration For Government – An Integrated Approach to Enabling a Mobile Workforce
Mobility within the public sector workforce is becoming a growing trend. To keep workers connected and as productive as they are in the "main office", Cisco is taking an architectural approach to meet this growing trend of remote and mobile workers. Key strategies to consider when developing a mobility solution, should include:

  • Mobile video endpoints and applications enable field workers and teleworkers to interact "anywhere at any time" with coworkers and citizens face-to-face, building trust and increasing the efficiency of communications.

  • Virtual desktops, stored in the organization's data center instead of on hard drives, help prevent loss of information if a laptop or tablet is lost or stolen.

  • Medianet technology adds intelligence to the network to help IT teams deliver a high-quality experience and simplify endpoint provisioning and troubleshooting.
