State and local governments have a partner to turn to during challenging times.
Do more with less. Increase productivity. Cut costs. Speed up response. During this economic crisis perhaps no entities have been more challenged than local governments asked to take on more responsibility and complex initiatives despite dramatic drops in tax revenues and record revenue shortfalls.
Meeting rising constituent expectations, shortening response and increasing efficiencies have been difficult for local governments to achieve. Meanwhile, they must prepare continuity of government plans, enhance communications infrastructure and create greener government operations. These challenges are increasing the demand for new, cost-effective technology solutions that will meet the needs of constituents and employees.
Sprint understands and values the needs of local governments and is committed to providing integrated, mobile communications solutions to meet them, including:
3G/4G Mobile Broadband: With speeds up to 10 times faster than 3G*, mobile broadband solutions provide improved multi-dimensional (GPS Navigation, GIS, video), near real-time intelligence for faster decision making, enhanced mobile workforce support and continuity of government planning.
Mobile Resource Management: Location-Based Services provide a near real-time view of equipment, vehicles and resources to help agencies better manage assets to increase situational awareness, productivity, operational efficiency and cost savings.
Nextel Direct Connect®: Enables employees to work securely from virtually anywhere, supporting increasingly mobile workforces. With the fastest national push-to-talk network, Sprint connects coast-to-coast push-to-talk calls in under a second. Even when disaster brings other networks down, Direct TalkSM customers can still communicate within six miles line of sight.
Dispatch Operations and Interoperability: Solutions such as Land Mobile Radio Augmentation and Wireless Priority Services integrate into every dispatch center in the nation to enhance day-to-day operations and emergency response. New, professional dispatch integration devices enhance communications in the field.
Emergency Response: The Emergency Response Team (ERT) mobilizes equipment, coverage and support anywhere in the continental U.S. 24x7 to ensure uninterrupted communications. Improve response time during events – from large-scale planned events to unanticipated emergency situations.
A continued focus on meeting the communications needs of state and local government reflects the dedication of Sprint to serve. With complementing industry-leading solutions including the first 4G wireless network from a national carrier, value pricing, personalized account management and support, and industry recognition for network performance and call quality, Sprint demonstrates a commitment to delivering robust, innovative solutions for government.
