Harris buys government network telecom provider

Core180 provides agencies with wide area networks and management services

Harris Corp. has acquired key infrastructure assets of Core180 Inc., a government telecom network integrator in Fairfax, Va. Financial terms were not reported.

Core180 provides wide area networks and management services to government agencies, large enterprises, telecom carriers and systems integrators, according to a Harris announcement today.

Harris acquired Core180’s proprietary carrier agnostic Network as a Service (NaaS) platform, which enables customers to extend their networks without additional capital or operational expenses, providing more network choices while lowering upfront investments.

The acquisition also includes 50 terrestrial networking experts based in Core180's New York and Washington, D.C, area offices, along with a 24 x 7 Network Operations Center that monitors the company’s extensive terrestrial infrastructure.

The acquired infrastructure will become part of Harris CapRock Communications, expanding Harris’ terrestrial network infrastructure and its ability to offer fully managed, end-to-end communication services for government and commercial customers.

Following completion of the transaction, Core180 will continue to serve its commercial and government customers directly.

Harris CapRock Communications owns and operates a robust global infrastructure that includes five teleports, four 24 x 7 network operations centers and 11 regional support centers, and more than 150 field service personnel supporting customer locations across North America, Central and South America, Europe, West Africa and Asia Pacific.

Harris Corp., of Melbourne, Fla., ranks No. 13 on Washington Technology’s 2010 Top 100 list of the largest federal government contractors.
