Forum Communications once again demonstrates its industry leadership, with the design and deployment of the first Unified Capabilities audio conferencing system using native Assured Services Session Initiated Protocol (AS-SIP) to interface directly with the Local Session Controllers (LSCs) on the DISN.

The Consortium II UCCS is a powerful conference server which has met Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA), Joint Interoperability Test Command (JITC) Certification, and Department of Defense (DOD) Unified Capabilities Approved Products Listing.

The Forum Communications Consortium II Conference Server is certified for joint use with all Local Session Controllers, Session Controllers, or Soft Switches on the DISA Approved Products List (APL) that offer an ASSIP or PRI Interface. The server is easy to use, offers comprehensive features, and can support from 20 to 2000 participants over multiple conference types including Pre-set Blast Dial or Meet Me Conferencing, Recurring calls, or Quick Conferences.

The Consortium II Conference Server provides audio conferencing capabilities that offer easy to use features, can support up to 2000 participants over multiple conference types, including Meet Me and Preset Conferences. The new release includes WebView, a secure, browser based user interface which provides system access and does not require browser plug-ins. System administrators and users can now access the system to schedule, create and modify Conferences and Participants over the AS-LAN, using the local sites Common Access Card (CAC) over the Public Key Infrastructure (PKI).

The system includes features to support Pre-Set Blast Dial Conferencing as well as Blast Notifications of voice, text, and email messages. The new release and platform improvements ensure a smooth migration path for JITC Certified Consortium II systems already in the field, and allow them to take advantage of the significant productivity improvements provided by the transition to all Assured Services VOIP technology within the DOD.

Enhanced Login Security Policy

As detailed in JITC approval process, there are stringent policies regarding authentication of users. At both the OS and application layers, we have greatly enhanced the security of user authentication.

Multilevel Precedence and Preemption (MLPP)

During a crisis, when the DSN has been partially disabled due to physical attack or increased use, it is crucial for key personnel to be able to complete phone calls, rather than getting network congestion indications as they would on a disabled or overused civilian telephone network. To ensure that high-level calls go through, users can specify a precedence level for each phone call. In the case of network congestion, higher precedence calls will preempt lower precedence calls, and reuse their network resources.
