The Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs has chosen Verizon Business for consolidating global communications over a single Internet Protocol (IP) network which would enable a secured and centralized communications infrastructure for its employees around the world and thus help reduce costs and administrative hassles. The ministry is going hi-tech with video conferencing which would help their employees to collaborate from wherever they are based.
The Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs has 115 outposts in 95 countries which represents Danish citizens and Danish interests. The ministry does research on new economic opportunities and providing an information-and-support resource for Danish citizens collaborates and implements changes in foreign policy. Since they have a global presence, there is a need for its employees to collaborate daily with the Danish government and other domestic authorities to articulate real-time responses to local requests and activities.
Therefore the consolidation under a single IP will help the ministry to implement IP-enabled applications such as VoIP and on-demand video conferencing. Communications traffic is prioritized via strict service level agreements, ensuring the most efficient delivery of business-critical information. The result is an always available, high-quality communications infrastructure to support virtual team meetings, crisis talks and even broadcast media interviews.
