JITC certifies Teo as the first AS-SIP End Instruments approved under the DoD Unified Capabilities Requirements

Teo's non-proprietary VoIP phones offer substantial cost savings for the Department of Defense, while streamlining standards-based deployment across the globe

MUKILTEO, Wash., Dec. 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Teo (http://www.teotech.com), a communications technology company with more than 40 years of experience developing mission critical solutions for the DoD, today announced their award of the first-ever certification by the Department of Defense Unified Capabilities Certification Office (UCCO) for Assured Services Session Initiation Protocol (AS-SIP) End Instruments (AEI).

Teo's certification by the Joint Interoperability Test Command (JITC) is unique in that it is the first end instrument to be approved with standards-based generic AS-SIP signaling, rather than a vendor-specific proprietary protocol. This allows for universal cross-platform deployment of Teo phones on all switch types that provide AEI support. The certification covers all of Teo's commercially available IP phones, including its CNSS-approved TSG-6 models that can be deployed in Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility (SCIF) areas.

Teo's UCR 2013 certification is the culmination of years of development and testing to meet the DoD Unified Capabilities Requirements (UCR) for Approved Product Listing (APL). The DoD UC APL was established to maintain a single consolidated list of products that have completed Interoperability (IO) and Information Assurance (IA) certification. This allows DoD branches to deploy UC components over all DoD network infrastructures with complete assurance of network security and interoperability.

"Teo is proud to be a part of this important DoD milestone toward deploying a global communications network that supports multi-vendor interoperability. Teo shares DoD's goal of establishing effective, secure, and common standards-based UC, and is pleased to have received this landmark approval after years of development and testing" – Steve Hill, President of Teo.

Teo's DoD-approved AS-SIP phones are available for purchase now.  Visit:  http://www.teotech.com/product_list/IP%20Phones.  For pricing and ordering information, call (800) 524-0024.
