To extend its reach into the U.S. federal market, LifeSize® Communications, a division of Logitech has achieved Joint Interoperability Test Command (JITC) certification for select LifeSize Room™, Team™, and Express™ HD video conferencing systems and the LifeSize Networker™ gateway.
These products have received Interoperability Certification (IOC) and Information Assurance (IA) accreditation from JITC, the organizational element of the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) responsible for certifying joint and combined interoperability of all Department of Defense (DoD) information technology and national security systems.
“HD video conferencing is in great demand by government organizations that are often geographically dispersed and rely heavily on technology to fulfill their mission,” said Paul Cantwell, the new vice president of federal sales for LifeSize. “The JITC certification will now allow all DoD agencies to realize the quality, productivity improvements, return on investment and interoperability that LifeSize systems provide.”
With the JITC certification, LifeSize products are now available through the DoD Unified Capabilities Approved Products List (UC APL). As part of JITC certification, the products were determined to meet IPv6 requirements.
“In addition to the JITC certification, LifeSize is expanding our federal sales organization with our hiring of Paul Cantwell, a Cisco and Tandberg veteran who is a proven leader in the federal market and videoconferencing industry,” said Colin Buechler, senior vice president of worldwide sales and marketing for LifeSize. “Under Paul’s leadership, LifeSize will give federal agencies the superior solutions and support our customers around the globe have come to expect.”
LifeSize is also in the final stages of earning the Federal Information Processing Standard 140-2 (FIPS 140-2).
