A New Model for Government: From Connected to Collaborative

White Paper Published By: Polycom

Type:  White Paper
Length:  4 pages

All over the world, governments, telecom operators and service providers are investing to create "next-generation" wired and wireless broadband networks with the capability to move enormous quantities of information at breathtaking speeds. What does this mean for constituents, businesses and government? Two words: Collaborative Government.

Consider two-way video consultations with caseworkers, court hearings conducted remotely and even virual teaching that brings Advanced Placement courses to at-risks schools.

This new model for government will bring interpersonal interaction into the world of cyberspace and as a result - make the previously impossible and impractical, an everyday practice.
