Armed forces, National Guard, pubic security personnel, immigration and customs officers understand the importance of real-time communications. Radio, voice and data communications have helped improve government operations over the years. New technologies have emerged which are defining how government organizations run operations, execute missions and win battles.
When dealing with sensitive topics and matters of global security, situational, geographic, cultural, and organizational barriers can prevent the effective sharing of information. Combined with the heightened stress that arises during crisis situations, non-verbal communication (such as facial and physical gestures) is critical to ensuring that decision makers accurately understand information.
Unified communication plays a critical role in improving information sharing and in coordinating operations that are complex, time-sensitive and fast-paced. Moreover, video collaboration is an essential application that provides complete situational awareness to field forces as well as to officers at the command and control center.
