Located in the south west of England and covering an area of 497 square kilometers, South Gloucestershire Council employs 7800 staff and is responsible for a population of over a quarter of a million. The Council recognized that it needed to look for outside communications solutions that would support this strategy, reduce costs and underpin its 'Green' credentials. To address these needs council chose Polycom. South Gloucestershire Council deployed Polycom HDX 7000 room telepresence solution, Polycom RMX 2000 multimedia conference platform, Polycom Video Border Proxy (VBP) network device and Polycom Converged Management Application (CMA) Desktop. With these solutions the council can leverage the investment and produce genuine ROI information to the executives, and the rate payers.
