The Cisco Jabber deployment has begun and will continue through mid-August. Jabber is the first of several telecommunication upgrades coming to HQ and replaces the current Cisco SoftPhone software. Jabber allows you to make and receive telephone calls using your NASA-issued computer. Demos and hands-on workshops are now available for both Windows and Mac users. Current Softphone users with a SoftPhone account will use the same log-in credentials to log in to Jabber. A NAMS request is required for new accounts. Training is strongly recommended for all users. Visit the Jabber Training Web page for dates, times, and registration information. Visit the Telecommunications Upgrade Project Web page for details on the project.

As part of a strategic objective to enhance PIV smartcard usage, the Information Technology and Communications Division (ITCD) is continuing the effort to reduce the number of RSA SecurID Tokens at NASA HQ in phases. The ultimate goal is to resolve all exceptions (i.e., the technical need to use a token) and eliminate tokens altogether. This will provide cost savings to HQ, ensure compliancy with federal mandates for improved security, and allow users to take advantage of advanced technologies available. All HQ personnel are encouraged to turn in tokens that are no longer utilized. Visit the HQ Token Phase-Out Project Web page for details.
Hours: Monday-Friday, 8 a.m. – 4 p.m.
