TASSTA’s T.Flex Earns FirstNet Certified™ Designation
First Responders Can Now Access TASSTA’s T.Flex via the FirstNet App Catalog
Atlanta, US – June 30, 2021 – Following a rigorous review process, TASSTA’s T.Flex for Android devices is now FirstNet® Certified™ and accessible via the FirstNet App Catalog.
TASSTA’s T.Flex app runs on any IP broadband network (2G/3G/4G/wi-fi) and is powered by the Android operating system. The solution includes Push-to-Talk voice communications and recording capabilities and also integrates added value services such as GPS tracking and Indoor Localization, task management, Push-to-Video, a certified (BGR 139) emergency and Lone Worker Protection (LWP) system, and alarm functions that provide support in emergencies.
FirstNet – America’s public safety communications platform – features the first-ever App Catalog geared to first responders, featuring more than 165 apps relevant to public safety’s mission. This gives FirstNet subscribers a dedicated location to find meaningful new solutions that have been specifically reviewed for use with FirstNet services.
“We are honored to receive FirstNet Certified™ designation,” said Kaveh Hosseinzadeh, General Manager TASSTA Inc. “We are happy to assist first responder communities adding broadband critical communication capabilities making safety a priority on their daily operations.”
Achieving a FirstNet Certified™ designation means TASSTA’s T.Flex is a heavily vetted and trusted solution for public safety, meeting FirstNet app requirements. Before any mobile solution can be added to the FirstNet App Catalog, it must pass stringent third-party tests for security, relevancy, data privacy and availability, as well as review by the App Review board which includes the FirstNet Authority. As a FirstNet Certified™ app, TASSTA’s T.Flex has been confirmed to meet those requirements, as well as higher requirements for mobility, scalability and resiliency.
Additionally, FirstNet subscribers will also be able to take advantage of the TASSTA’s T.Flex solution while benefitting from the enhanced security provided by the FirstNet network core, which is the only physically separate network core dedicated entirely to public safety in America.
