Keeping the lines of communication and collaboration open between these nations and their militaries is a struggle under the best of conditions. However, the ongoing economic situation is impacting each and every member nation to some degree and at some level. This means that budgets need to be cut, every cent needs to be accounted for and physical face-to-face meetings between the military decision makers from multiple countries simply aren’t affordable.
It’s for this reason that video teleconferencing (VTC) solutions are receiving a serious push within NATO member nations. VTC solutions can ensure countries that are NATO members can stay connected and collaborate without having to travel for face-to-face meetings. By conducting these meetings via video, instead, they can save budget dollars while still enabling coordination between nations.
What has been your experience with using video to coordinate multinational efforts? Are VTC solutions increasing efficiency?
