Cisco has provided a communications system for video and audio conferencing, data sharing, text-to-speech, decision support management and uninterrupted power supply for the Ukrainian state tax service.
“The project of building a highly secure special communications system for STSU has been performed within very limited time,” said Vladislav Maslo, AMI CEO. “For instance, in just seven working days we launched the central system, connected all offices, tuned and verified the solution.”
According to a company release, AMI, a Cisco® select certified partner in Ukraine, provided 43 STSU regional offices across the Ukraine with the system.
Alexander Chemerys, Cisco Ukraine account manager, said the company’s video services supporting interactive employee collaboration are becoming more popular with Ukrainian government agencies because they work to save time and eliminate travelling expenses.
The STSU videoconferencing system includes HD transmission and recording and supports up to five conferences with 40 participants.
The system includes two Cisco TelePresence® MCU 5320 video servers, the Cisco TelePresence video communication server, Cisco VCSE external calling server, Cisco TelePresence content server and Cisco TelePresence management suite.
The STSU conference hall has three rotating cameras with 12х optical zoom that automatically focuses on the person speaking and shows the close-up image on video terminals.
A decision support system helps users plan meetings, register minutes and provides access to sections of video library for better execution and control.
