In Februrary 2018, Nex-Tech was featured in an article from NTCA, the rural broadband association, for acting as a trusted third party (TPP) that assists telecommunication companies with compliance in the Communications Assistance for Law Enforcement Act (CALEA).

The 1994 law requires that if telcos are presented with a subpoena or a warrant, they must be capable of “wiretapping” users of their network without detection so that information can be turned over to law enforcement.

CALEA allows providers without the resources to comply with the law to instead hire TTPs that meet the requisite security requirements and can fulfill requests on behalf of others.

As one of its carrier-facing business services, Nex-Tech functions as a trusted third party (TTP) that assists ISPs with complex regulation compliance, and hopes to further innovate and diversify in the future.
