Cisco Unified Workspace for Government
The Cisco Unified Workspace transforms the traditional concept of a workplace into a workspace that moves with employees, constituents and students by unifying mobility, video, collaboration and any business applications they need, and then makes them securely available on any device, with an uncompromised user experience. The Cisco Unified Workspace delivers voice, video, and data in ways that meet end-user preferences for the device of their choice, while lowering provisioning costs through a common IT architecture. With collaboration applications like WebEx and Jabber, remote workers and students can have efficient, high quality, and productive collaboration sessions or meetings through high definition video, voice, content sharing, IM, and presence. .
