News : Spok Solutions Achieve JITC Certification
Springfield, VA, USA, Oct 14, 2015 -- Spok, Inc. announced that several of its key solutions have received Joint Interoperability Test Command (JITC) certification and are now listed under the Department of Defense’s Unified Capabilities Approved Products List. The solutions are:
9-1-1 call-taking and dispatch console
Enhanced 9-1-1 (E9-1-1)
Additionally, the Spok(R) pc/psap call-taking and dispatch solution received updated JITC certification for its additional computer telephony integration (CTI) security, and the Spok(R) Smart Console solution was recertified.
The accreditation means these Spok solutions meet the levels of security and interoperability required by the U.S. Government and the U.S. Military. JITC certification encompasses Information Assurance (IA) Accreditation from the Defense IA/Security Accreditation Working Group (DSAWG) and Interoperability Certification (IOC) from the Joint Staff (JS).
To earn JITC certification, Spok completed rigorous federal government testing and compliance processes under real-life conditions. The test lab has the same infrastructure as a live 9-1-1 center, ensuring that solutions undergo testing using the same circuits used by public safety professionals. The JITC certification process tests the ability to provide and accept data, information, materials and services, including both the technical exchange of information and the end-to-end operational effectiveness of that exchange. JITC serves the Defense Information Systems Agency, combatant commands, the Department of Defense, and other federal agencies, allies, coalition partners, and commercial vendors.
