Lumen Technologies to Provide Communications Support to CBP via $137M Contract
Lumen will provide secure and resilient communications services that will support CBP’s missions at ports of entry and borders within and outside the U.S.; enhance the design, engineering, management and maintenance of the agency’s communications services; help with the adoption of a software-defined wide-area network solution; and offer its edge computing platform to support hundreds of locations around the world.
Zain Ahmed, senior vice president of Lumen’s public sector business and a Potomac Officers Club member, said the company will enable next-generation applications and data-driven operations for the agency. Lumen’s technologies are proven to deliver fast and secure connectivity, Ahmed said.
The award follows a $1.2 billion network services contract that the company won from the Department of Agriculture in January. For this effort, Lumen will deliver a fully integrated wide-area data transport service with secure remote access, contact center and cloud connectivity solutions to over 9,500 USDA locations within and outside the U.S.
Lumen Technologies offers networking, security, edge computing and cloud solutions and products. It is headquartered in Monroe, Louisiana, and has offices within and outside the U.S.
