Today is an important day for LifeSize in the federal market.
Since our products came to market, federal standards-setting organizations and leading government contractors alike have selected LifeSize as one of the best solutions for HD video collaboration. Now, our full line of endpoints has received Joint Interoperability Test Command (JITC) certification from the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA). LifeSize products are now available on the DoD Unified Capabilities Approved Products List (UC APL). Specifically, the LifeSize® Room™ series, LifeSize® Team™ series and LifeSize® Express™ series of endpoints and the LifeSize Networker™ gateway are now fully JITC compliant, with both Interoperability (IO) and Information Assurance (IA) compliance certification.
Additionally, LifeSize has entered into a strategic reseller agreement with Avaya Government Solutions. You’ll remember from our blog post last week that LifeSize is now Avaya DevConnect compliant. Now, LifeSize and Avaya Government Solutions will cooperatively provide complete, end-to-end video collaboration solutions to the United States Federal Government, leveraging the Avaya Aura® platform and LifeSize’s full suite of high-definition video products.
From teleworking to distance learning, to continuity of operations and beyond, the need for federal agencies to work together and share information seamlessly has never been greater. LifeSize solutions are currently installed in federal agencies such as the DoD, U.S. Army, the Department of Energy, NASA, the U.S. House of Representatives, DISA and the list continues to grow. I believe that our full suite of JITC compliant endpoints, coupled with our agreement with Avaya Government Solutions, makes LifeSize uniquely positioned to impact the federal market in a meaningful way.
