DecisionPoint to Lead USCIS Network Migration to IPv6

DecisionPoint announced on Wednesday that it has secured a $9.6 million task order to lead the transition of the Department of Homeland Security’s U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services network to Internet Protocol Version 6 from Version 4. 

The company disclosed that the contract was competitively awarded via the General Services Administration Veterans Technology Services 2 contract. Migrating to IPv6 will modernize mission-critical USCIS networks and applications, DecisionPoint said.

IPv6’s key benefits, according to network intelligence company ThousandEyes, include auto-configuration, private address collision avoidance, improved multicast routing, flexible options and extensions and built-in authentication and privacy support. 

DecisionPoint founder and CEO Brian Flood, a 4×24 member, said the IPv6 migration will bring “modern and effective solutions” to over 280 USCIS offices inside and outside the continental United States.

Gaithersburg, Maryland-based DecisionPoint is a service-disabled, veteran-owned small business and Historically Underutilized Business Zone program member.

DecisionPoint caters to defense and federal civilian agencies requiring services in IT modernization, digital transformation, cybersecurity, health IT and intelligent automation services.
