Overview

Event Overview:

In what feels like an instant, everything we know seems to have changed. From the way we work to how we provide for our families, COVID-19 has thrust us into a new version of the digital world that few saw coming. Government agencies are bearing some of the greatest burdens as they work hard to maintain their operations -- from defending our nation to providing vital citizen services, all while trying to connect a distributed digital workforce.

Supporting critical services from instant bandwidth to WiFi hotspots to unified communications and collaboration, the network is the lifeforce connecting and holding it all together. As agencies find solutions for their current needs, they need to be thinking about what comes next, and accelerating their IT and network modernization efforts should be at the forefront of many of those discussions.

We will discuss:

  • The current digital needs of government;
  • How IT and network infrastructure providers are responding;
  • How agencies are looking at operating in the future; and
  • The acceleration of network modernization: TIC 3.0, investing in the edge and EIS transition
