Modernization Will Improve Network Performance, Lower Ownership Costs
HERNDON, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Innovationstoday announced it has been awarded a $7.3
million task order under the Army Infrastructure Modernization (IMOD)
contract to upgrade the Joint Base Lewis-McChord (JBLM) network located
in the Pacific Northwest’s Puget Sound region.
Under the terms of the task order, LGS will engineer, furnish, install,
secure, test, and migrate a robust fiber overhaul to the base’s network
architecture. The modernization effort, with a period of performance
from May 2014 to April 2016, will significantly improve network
resiliency as well as lower the cost of ownership.
LGS Innovations provided the best value with an innovative solution that
supplements existing fiber optic cable. The solution simplifies the
network architecture while creating a more robust coordinated network.
“This solution is forward-looking as it not only satisfies current
needs, but also creates a cost effective foundation for potential future
upgrades to a 40 or 100 Gigabit network,” said LGS Innovations CEO,
Kevin Kelly. “It will provide higher connectivity speeds to Joint Base
Lewis-McChord locally, and allows the base to expand its services
regionally to better enable our nation’s warfighters as they train and
implement America’s combat power.”
JBLM is the Defense Department's premiere military installation on the
West Coast, providing world-class installation support to more than
40,000 active, National Guard, and Reserve Service members and about
15,000 civilian workers. The base also supports 60,000 family members
who live on and outside the base, and nearly 30,000 military retirees
living within 50 miles.
