Yesterday on the Fire Hose blog, we announced Lync 2013 has achieved JITC certification for Voice, Video, and IM and Presence under the category of Unified Capabilities Collaboration Platform (UCCP). JITC certification ensures that software can connect to the DISN (Defense  Information Switched Network) having strict requirements on how software and hardware interoperates on its network. The UCCP is a new certification category created for products that have multifunctional capabilities.

Microsoft recognizes the importance of meeting specific customer requirements and staying up to date with today’s ever-evolving industry standards and regulations. JITC certification is just one of the ways we continue to meet the needs of our enterprise customers. For more information about JITC certification, please read Fire Hose blog.
