NMCI plugs into Emerson

Emerson Network Power has received orders totaling $33 million for power technology to upgrade and protect the Navy-Marine Corps Intranet, the company announced June 5.

The orders are part of the $6.9 billion NMCI program being managed by Electronic Data Systems Corp. of Plano, Texas.

Through its Liebert subsidiary, Emerson Network Power of St. Louis will provide infrastructure support for the Navy and Marine Corps' server farms and remote sites, including special temperature control systems, uninterruptible power supply systems, network monitoring and support services.

The Emerson technology is incorporated into portable computer enclosures that maintain temperature control and power conditioning to protect and monitor network systems vital to Navy and Marine Corps installations in the United States and overseas.

The network overhaul is designed to upgrade and standardize the Navy's network technology used to support its Intranet communications.

In addition to ensuring greater efficiencies for Navy and Marine Corps personnel, the overhaul also is expected to cut in half the federal government's operating and maintenance costs for the network, according to the companies.

Emerson Network Power is a business unit of Emerson Electronic Corp. of St. Louis. The company has more than 124,500 employees and annual revenue of $15.5 billion.
