Liberating Government Communications
July 5, 2012
Happy 4th of July! We in the U.S. truly do have much to celebrate — 236 years of freedom is quite an accomplishment. This success is due in large part to the local and regional administration of government functions that have been able to adapt and scale with the country’s growth.
Staying on top of constituent concerns requires the use of modern communication tools. As much as the Founding Fathers of the Declaration of Independence could not have imagined Ethernet, email, videoconferencing, or mobile computing, present-day government officials cannot imagine conducting business without access to these now fundamental tools.
Even with the advantages of technology, government offices must still address concerns and challenges:
- Cutting expenses: One universal challenge is the pace of U.S. economic recovery. Some locales have been hit hard — even forced to declare bankruptcy.
- Maintaining security: Tax information, court documents, and public records all have to be correct and protected.
- Dealing with growth: Some regions have experienced rapid (and often unpredictable) growth and development.
They all need a communications technology infrastructure that is affordable, secure, and scalable.
That’s where tw telecom comes in. We have years of experience installing networks for government offices of all sizes throughout the U.S. We have a new GSA contract in Hawaii to provide Ethernet and VoIP services to all federal agencies there. Additionally, tw telecom has contracts with Texas, Arizona, New York, and Ohio.
These agencies have chosen tw telecom because we have a fiber-based network that connects more than 16,000 commercial buildings across the U.S., so we can handle the volume. Our private Ethernet network extends from doorstep to doorstep, offering unparalleled security. And with tw telecom’sIntelligent Network, IT professionals have the visibility, flexibility and control into the network they need. They have the power to adjust bandwidth to demand at their fingertips, which improves efficiency.
Scalability, security, and affordability make tw telecom the right choice for liberating government communications.
