Government agencies are being challenged to provide their employees and the citizens they serve with secure, cost effective, high-speed access to online information and resources. For today’s agencies, high quality video, collaboration, social media, VoIP, and multimedia applications have become mission critical services. These applications have placed unprecedented bandwidth and control demands on existing networks. The increasingly rapid deployment of wireless access, data center virtualization, and the adoption of Cloud Computing have further complicated network management and control. For federal government agencies, the challenge is determining how to deliver secure, seamless, always-on access to these mission critical services across both the wired and wireless edges of the network. Agencies need to deliver access from laptops, tablets, smartphones and other types of devices, at any time, from any place and from anywhere, while at the same time maximizing efficiencies and cost savings across all areas of the network infrastructure. Extreme Networks provides a rich set of secure networking solutions that allow federal government agencies to meet not only today’s needs, but also to be prepared for future demands.
Empowering US Federal Government operations and services with unified communications (UC)
US Federal Government departments and agencies suffer from budget pressures due to tax revenue shortfalls, spiralling costs and increasing demands from citizens. They need solutions less to improve service, responsiveness, efficiency, productivity and collaboration with fewer resources.
The Polycom suite of collaborative solutions enable greater interactions and engagement between government organizations and stakeholders, giving citizens on-demand access to better quality of services wherever they may be located.
Law enforcement, military and emergency services teams provide an ever-widening array of services. Polycom solutions help them better prepare and coordinate, shortening response times to emergencies such as natural disasters, environmental crisis, health hazards and security threats.
Overcrowded justice systems create dangerous situations and logistical problems. Polycom solutions help streamline civil and criminal judicial operations by reducing pending in-person proceedings and eliminating transportation requirements for offenders and law enforcement personnel.
US Federal Government agencies and departments responsible for national defense and national security can increase the state of readiness, quickly assess situations and securely communicate in any environment ensuring greater mission success.
Obstacles to organizational efficiency are solved by the integration of the Polycom® RealPresence® standard-based platform that help improve public services, safety, justice and security by minimizing distance barriers, removing organizational differences, and closes gaps to bring people together.
One of the newest and most important additions to our Federal Secure Supply Chain strategy is UID Tagging. UID Tagging is simply a Department Of Defense federal mandate that all products shipped to a DOD federal end user, with a value over $5000.00, must have a Universal Identification Tag that meets certain pre defined specifications.
Westcon performs all aspects of the UID Tagging requirement; applying the tag to the equipment as well as uploading the information in the correct format to the federal government. This is another reason for federal resellers to do business with Westcon. Safe, Secure, and Streamlined for Success!
