DISA Introduces DoD Teleconferencing Tech

The Defense Information Systems Agency's Defense Collaboration Services unveiled a free and integrated teleconferencing technology for Department of Defense employees.

The technology is compatible with defense switched network, enterprise voice over internet protocol and commercial phone systems to help telephone and web conference users communicate with DoD co-employees through an integrated DCS audio function, DISA said Wednesday.

Users may perform screen-sharing, present PowerPoint slides, carry out polls and record web sessions through the DCS web conferencing capability. In addition, users may remove call participants, mute users and view all conference participants.

“It’s important that organizations allow necessary network and workstation  changes so employees can have access to these free features that will let DOD employees worldwide work more collaboratively," said Derek Westray, lead engineer at DCS.
