Executive Summary

The budget impact of travel can be substantial, particularly for offices located far from Denver. When the agency began assessing alternatives to streamline its communications, Richard Reynolds, transportation director for Region 5, calculated that employees in his region spent $49,000 in travel costs in a single month. Following an initial deployment of Polycom VSX 8800 video conferencing solutions, CDOT video engineers, headed by Rivera in Denver, designed and installed a statewide video conferencing network. Today, the year-old CDOT network includes 22 video conferencing sites equipped with 14 high definition (HD) Polycom HDX 7000 telepresence solutions and the eight original VSX 8800 systems. Using a Polycom RMX 1000 conference platform, the systems link CDOC's Denver headquarters and main regional offices with additional engineering and maintenance facilities around the state.
