“Brocade's robust, reliable, and scalable network hardware allows us to remotely monitor and manage our entire security and information management systems without unnecessary maintenance or unexpected additional costs.”
In today's challenging economic climate, state and local governments are being asked to provide a wide range of new services at a time when budgets are being slashed and workers furloughed. To overcome these challenges, many are turning to innovative technology solutions such as Voice over IP (VoIP), data center consolidation and virtualization, and Web-based self-service applications. At the forefront of delivering these solutions, Brocade offers a complete family of Ethernet, storage, and converged networking products that are purpose-built for these unique requirements.
With fewer resources to call upon these days, state and local governments are looking for ways to provide traditional services over the Web. For instance, enabling citizens to pay a department of motor vehicles bill or water bill quickly and easily online dramatically reduces processing time and expense—and streamlines the overall revenue collection process.
Adopting VoIP technology is another way many government entities are saving money while delivering new services. In particular, Brocade helps them unlock the value in converged networks by offering an extensive set of VoIP-ready solutions that deliver uninterrupted service quality, reliability, and security for IP-based phones, video, and converged desktop applications.
Following the mandate to "do more with less," governments are also consolidating and virtualizing their data centers to eliminate costs and be more responsive to dynamic requirements. Consolidation and virtualization provide economies of scale, significant cost savings, increased efficiency, better information sharing, and many other benefits.
By giving state and local governments the freedom to choose the right plug-and-comply infrastructure solutions, Brocade provides a no-compromise approach to high performance, reliable networking. Brocade solutions facilitate successful consolidation, virtualization, and VoIP adoption today and in the future—at a price that meets today's fiscal challenges.
