Lumen to Provide High-Speed Connectivity at Army Recruitment Sites Under EIS Contract
The Department of Defense has awarded Lumen Technologies a task order to support the U.S. Army Contracting Command by providing secure high-speed connectivity.
Lumen will deliver its internet and voice over internet protocol solutions to the command under a task order that could be worth $52 million if all options are exercised.
The Monroe, Louisiana-headquartered telecommunications company will execute the contract requirements throughout a one-year base period. After the initial contract work, the DOD will decide on the continuation of services under the task order’s 11 one-year options.
According to the company, the internet and VoIP solutions will support the communications needs at various Army recruiting sites across the country and in U.S. territories.
Lumen’s products are designed to provide customers with near-zero latency to support next-generation applications on the edge.
The solutions support connected security through automated threat detection and built-in protection capabilities; adaptive networking through connectivity delivered by an architecture that can adjust to real-time capacity needs; and collaboration by streamlining networks, among others.
The Lumen connectivity will help Army recruiting sites attract volunteers to serve in the military force, according to Zain Ahmed, the regional vice president of the company’s federal government business.
“Lumen is providing modern communications and networking services to this crucial division that we count on to recruit people who are able to deploy, engage and succeed,” Ahmed said in a statement.
The company is one of the contractors for the GSA’s EIS program, which provides next-generation products and services to the federal government to modernize information technology infrastructure.
