Aug 22, 2012
Enables U.S. Army to Achieve Highly Secure AV Networks with Crestron Integrated by Design Solution
Crestron has been granted a Certificate of Networthiness (CoN) for its Fusion RV AV Management & Room Scheduling Software from the U.S. Army Network Enterprise Technology Command (NETCOM)/9th Army Signal Command. The CoN certification confirms that Fusion RV is in full compliance with the Army Infrastructure strict standards for security, supportability, sustainability and compatibility. This stringent authorization is a requirement for all enterprise software products in the Army Enterprise Infrastructure Network and becoming accredited enables Fusion RV to reside on the secure army network with no restrictions. Crestron received the CoN certification for the previous-generation software RoomView® Server Edition.
"We were the first manufacturer of control products to receive the CoN for our software products," said Landon Lovett, Crestron Director of Federal Government Markets. "Our next generation Fusion RV software simplifies the management of the network, without compromising quality or security."
Fusion RV allows the Army to centrally monitor and manage its entire network, including all AV resources, room scheduling, lighting, and climate in every classroom, auditorium, meeting room or command center, across several buildings and bases, from the help desk. It can track device and room usage to schedule routine maintenance, provide real-time remote technical support and receive instant alert notifications.
"We put tens of thousands of engineering hours into making Fusion RV the most robust AV management and room Scheduling software on the market," says Crestron VP of Technology, Fred Bargetzi. "The combination of speed, power, stability and security make Fusion RV a proven solution for the army."
To acquire the CoN certificate, Fusion RV underwent testing by the Senior Executive Service (SES)/Army Enterprise Designated Approving Authority (DAA)/Network Enterprise Technology Command (NETCOM) located in Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri G6. In addition to the U.S. Army, the certification applies to all National Guard, Army Reserve, and Department of Defense (DoD) Organizations that use the Army Enterprise Infrastructure Network.
