This paper examines how the increasingly ubiquitous connectedness of our IoE world can help provide public safety and justice agencies with new opportunities to meet and overcome the challenges they face.
Cisco and our partners can help agencies obtain secure networks, which help:
• Reduce time between incident detection and response
• Empower field personnel to make decisions based on all available information
• Disseminate the right information to the right people at the right time
This paper examines how the increasingly ubiquitous connectedness of our IoE world can help provide public safety and justice agencies with new opportunities to meet and overcome the challenges they face. It specifically examines this topic through applications in law enforcement, emergency response, corrections, courts, and national security, and shows how IoE can help transform agencies to better protect citizens and make communities safer. Finally, this paper will provide recommendations on strategy implementation to enable agencies to take the next steps.
To effectively respond to these challenges, public safety agencies must be able to rely on secure networks with integrated voice, video, and data capabilities. With these networks and their associated assets, agencies can obtain more timely and accurate information, enhancing situational awareness and improving response times. Cisco and our partners can help agencies obtain secure networks.

It’s no secret—healthcare is transforming. The transition to value-based care is well underway; healthcare players are feeling the impact and each has a role to play, including you! Moving to a value-driven model demands agility from every person, process and technology. These changes are generating more data than ever, there is a lot of data, in fact IDC Global Health Insights predicted that over the next 10 years, the amount of digital healthcare data created annually will grow 44 fold. Organizations that lead the pack and succeed will be those where clinicians, business leaders and patients are empowered with access to clean, safe and connected data. Learn more about your role in putting information to work…
The network has never been as critical to the healthcare sector as it is today. Electronic health records, Wi-Fi-connected medical devices, and clinician smart phones are among a plethora of healthcare technologies that depend on a stable network.
The consistent development of this infrastructure is key for the healthcare sector to continue its successes in creating new possibilities for management, patient and family experience, and patient outcomes.
Extreme Networks posed key questions to Nolan Greene, a senior research analyst with IDC’s Network Infrastructure group, who highlights the critical issues healthcare IT professionals must consider when building a network that maintains industry needs.

this information is utilized.
As high-visibility security breaches occur - affecting
ecommerce, banking, retail and other industries - the
critical importance of the security of the infrastructure
these businesses rely on continues to grow.
Security in the workplace is a daily fact of life. From
using ID cards to control physical access, to entering
passwords to join the network, to using software to
monitor and prevent unauthorized access, all are
routinely used to protect critical assets and information.

Anytime, anywhere access to work is now a basic need for the modern workforce. Whether remote, in the field or in the office, workers are no longer physically connected to your network or data center. Today’s employees work in a digital workspace that features virtualized laptops, desktop and workstations; a variety of personal systems and smart devices that may be part of BYOD programs and a diverse app ecosystem with desktop, remote, mobile, SaaS and Universal apps. In this mobile-cloud world, new and unpredictable forms of malicious software continue to evolve. Traditional network security, perimeter protection and firewalls are no longer enough to combat these new threats to the corporate IT infrastructure and company data integrity.
With a secure foundation in place to manage internal IT, many IT leaders are thinking about a foundation for the entire business. In the new world of mobile apps, cloud services, and the Internet of Everything, people, processes, data, and devices are all converging to reshape how day-to-day business is done. Companies are reaching out to customers and partners—and even intelligent objects like connected cars and monitoring systems—and modifying the products and services they bring to market as a result. To an unprecedented degree, the future of an enterprise lies in the hands of the CIO and her IT staff who orchestrate these connections and act on the benefits they bring.
IT leaders are finding new opportunities in an era of digital disruption. This executive brief provides a quick overview of how they are driving growth and increasing efficiency by securely connecting the digital enterprise with customers, partners, suppliers and distributors.

There’s no denying that today’s workforce is “mobile.” Inspired by the ease and simplicity of their own personal devices, today’s workforce relies on a variety of tools to accomplish their business tasks — desktops, smart phones, tablets, laptops or other connected devices — each with varying operating systems.
The specific tasks they need to accomplish? That depends on the person. But it’s safe to say remotely logging in and out of legacy, desktop, mobile, software as-a-service (SaaS) and cloud applications is a given.
And the devices on which they work? They could be owned by the enterprise or the end user, with varying levels of company oversight, security and management. The result? An overabundance of “flexibility” that leads to fundamental IT challenges of security and manageability.
One of the agency biggest challenges is juggling multiple projects across departments while retaining complete visibility into finances, pipelines and resources management. Most agencies use multiple systems to handle each of these processes. According to The Drum Lab rats, to have “one integrated and user-friendly connected system would be the ideal solution.”
Five leading agencies tested the WorkBook Agency Management system in a recent Drums Labs workshop. Testers quickly discovered the wealth of functionality, the high level of usability and the full integration that WorkBook provides to agency businesses.
While they’re intensifying, business-data challenges aren’t new. Companies have tried several strategies in their attempt to harness the power of data in ways that are feasible and effective. The best data analyses and game-changing insights will never happen without the right data in the right place at the right time. That’s why data preparation is a non-negotiable must for any successful customer-engagement initiative. The fact is, you can’t simply load data from multiple sources and expect it to make sense. This white paper examines the shortcomings of traditional approaches such as data warehouses/data lakes and explores the power of connected data.
For today’s service providers and enterprises, bandwidth demands continue to increase and evolve. The introduction of Internet of Things (IoT) solutions, such as smart homes, smart cities, connected cars, and connected medical devices, is forcing organizations to change existing business models and to build more cost-effective networks.
