  • The U.S. DoD granted Joint Interoperability Test Command (JITC) certification to our core communications systems. To attain this certification we completed rigorous interoperability and information assurance certification. Access The DoD Unified Capabilities (UC) Approved Products List (APL).
  • Vocera received FIPS 140-2 certification for the Vocera Smartbadge and Vocera Badge, certificates #3865 and #2107.

DoD has awarded a Single Award Task Order Contract (SATOC) to Government Marketing and Procurement (GMP), the reseller for Vocera in federal markets. Read more
