General Manager, SCANA Services
Challenge: Needed to integrate over 50 different radio channels across a three-state region (Georgia, North Carolina and South Carolina); to modernize existing systems with flexible IP Dispatch to improve coordination and management with the field workforce; and to meet regulation banning cell phone in commercial truck fleet.
Solution: SCANA now has a standards-based centralized, flexible, converged architecture leveraging Instant Connect, Cisco Land Mobile Radio gateways, and ISR G2 routers.
National Networks Manager-Data, New Zealand Police
Challenge: Needed to quickly and effectively respond to rapidly-changing emergency response scenarios, and to work with both legacy and new digital radio systems.
Solution: Thanks to Instant Connect, any radio channel can now be accessed by the Dispatch Console, Operators Console or IP Phone anywhere in the country.

Manager, Holyoke Gas & Electric
Challenge: The City of Holyoke, Massachusetts, needed to implement Cisco’s services-led vision of Smart+Connected Communities; and to help contribute to a safe environment for citizens.
