Lumen to Deliver Defense Network Support Services Under $110M DISA Contract
The Defense Information Systems Agency has awarded Lumen a five-year contract worth approximately $110 million to provide network support services to the Department of Defense.
Lumen will maintain DISA’s network infrastructure, including its co-location facilities, end-to-end networks and over 11,000 miles of fiber cables. The company will also provide system updates to allow the agency to use new technologies that improve network resilience, reduce latency and increase capacity.
The contract supports the DOD Information Network, as well as IT modernization efforts across the department, Lumen said Tuesday.
The award builds on several contracts the company received in recent months to modernize communications capabilities.
In February, DISA awarded Lumen a $223 million contract to provide secure voice communications services supporting the Pentagon’s network modernization efforts. Lumen said its voice-over-internet-protocol system will enable next-generation 911 at military bases.
In November 2022, Lumen received a 10-year $1.5 billion indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract from DISA to provide and operate a communications network for the U.S. Indo-Pacific Command. Services delivered under the contract include edge cloud computing and adaptive networking.
