Smith Micro Software announced that its enterprise connection management software, QuickLink Mobility, has been chosen by the District of Columbia Office of Unified Communications (OUC). The QuickLink software will be deployed by the DC Metropolitan Police Department (MPDC).
Smith Micro is focused on providing client and server software applications and software systems that are intended to improve the mobile experience. The company’s QuickLink Mobility is a core component of Smith’s Mobility Command Center, and helps members of the mobile communications industry provide products that are secure, while optimizing network and device resources.
Within the MPDC, QuickLink will be used to incorporate advanced authentication for mobile systems which provides compliance with Criminal Justice Information Services (CJIS) access requirements. Smith’s collaboration with DC’s OUC ensures that officers in the field will be able to maintain seamless access to all 3G and Wi-Fi connections from mobile devices in their vehicles, with persistent access to back-office applications. The OUC handles nearly two million 911 calls in DC each year, with call traffic coming from the MPDC as well as the fire department and emergency medical services.
Jennifer Greene, DC’s OUC Director, said, “The Office of Unified Communications selected Smith Micro’s Mobile VPN solution to enable our public safety partners to stay connected while in the field. We needed a reliable connection solution that allows access to data over a secure mobile broadband network. The Smith Micro QuickLink Mobility solution offers a seamless transition between commercial mobile and secure Wi-Fi, as well as a platform for multiple operating systems.”
