City of San Jose Selects Nortel to Provide Network for New City Hall
SAN JOSE, Calif. - The City of San Jose has selected Nortel to provide a converged communications network for the new San Jose City Hall to help city officials collaborate and serve constituents.
An agreement was signed following the San Jose City Council's unanimous approval of a recommendation to accept Nortel's bid.
Under the agreement, Nortel is expected to complete network installation no later than June 9, 2005 and to provide related network operations services for at least one year.
The Nortel solution for the new San Jose City Hall will offer collaboration tools based on voice, data, video, wireless and IP (Internet Protocol) multimedia capabilities.

Also included will be a call center with voice recognition capabilities that will provide residents with a way to access city government services.
