Verizon gets Army task orders

Verizon Business has won multiple task orders to improve IP networks at Army bases.

Verizon Business will begin installing and upgrading IP networks at five Army installations under five task orders totaling $70.7 million.

The task orders are part of the Installation, Information, Infrastructure Modernization contract for network service centers under the enterprise information systems program. The indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity modernization contract was awarded in 2006 to multiple vendors who are now bidding on individual task orders.

Under the largest task order, valued at $36.9 million, Verizon will upgrade voice, data and cable networks at Aberdeen Proving Ground, Md., to bring the existing network to the next-generation protocol, known as IPv6.

In addition, Verizon will upgrade networks at Fort Lee in Virginia under a $9.6 million task order; upgrade network facilities at Kwajalein in the Marshall Islands under a $12.9 million task order; expand and upgrade networks at Fort Sill in Oklahoma under a $2.5 million task order; and install fiber-optic cables and infrastructure at Fort Greely in Alaska under a $1.3 million task order.

Verizon Business is a unit of New York-based Verizon Communications Inc. The parent company ranks No. 18 on Washington Technology's Top 100 list.
