JPS PoC App Gains FirstNet App Catalog Certification
Wednesday, July 01, 2020 | Comments

Following a rigorous review process, JPS VIA is now First Responder Network Authority (FirstNet) Certified and accessible via the FirstNet App Catalog.

JPS VIA is a secure push-to-talk (PTT) over cellular (PoC) application that provides one-to-one and one-to-many user calling, preconfigured and ad-hoc group calling, text and picture messaging, real-time and historical location, and voice playback features. The app seamlessly integrates with JPS interoperability gateways using the radio over IP (RoIP) protocol, offering mobile and radio users the opportunity to share communications across both technologies.

Powered by the ESChat platform and available on both Android and iOS platforms, JPS VIA allows users on any mobile platform, wireless carrier or wireless network access to the same system(s).

“FirstNet Certification underscores the importance JPS places on integrating our RoIP protocol for LMR and mobile connectivity,” said Roman Kaluta, customer advocate and public-safety liaison for JPS. “It’s a huge milestone for JPS and for public safety; one that will strengthen first responders’ ability to best serve their communities. We’re proud that JPS VIA has passed the stringent certification process, and we are committed to maintaining that certification to ensure that we continue providing our customers with proven, reliable and certified applications.”

The App Catalog is geared to first responders, featuring more than 100 apps relevant to public safety’s mission. Before any mobile solution can be added to the FirstNet App Catalog, it must pass stringent tests for security, relevancy, data privacy and availability.

“Through our work with first responders, we heard their need for innovative applications to assist with their lifesaving mission,” said Mark Golaszewski, executive director of Technology and Innovation, First Responder Network Authority. “FirstNet is helping to address these needs, and we are pleased to welcome JPS VIA to the FirstNet App Catalog.
