Special Report: Next-Generation Networks

Communications networks that provide Internet, phone, video and other services become the foundation of a high-performance, 21st-century economy. Government agencies are challenged with unprecedented pressure to provide citizens, employees and even other agencies with services such as Next Generation 9-1-1, video arraignment, telehealth, real-time traffic management, smart utility metering and more.

Federal, state and local governments are challenged to cost-efficiently deliver these high-bandwidth services.

This must-read Special Report gives CIOs and other government leaders a look at how their agencies can increase productivity, improve citizen services, enhance public safety and more through the use of a robust next-generation network infrastructure.
