CenturyLink wins $1.7M contract protected fiber-optic system

CenturyLink has won a $1.7 million contract to provide a fiber optic system to DISA that is buried in concrete and steel.

The fiber will run in a steep pipe encased in concrete conduit to protect it from the effects of high altitude electromagnetic pulses to ensure continuity of service and survivability.

The system will support the Colorado Springs Survivable Communications Network, helping to deliver uninterrupted connectivity among Schriever Air Force Base, Peterson Air Force Base and Cheyenne Mountain Air Force Station.

In addition to the system, CenturyLink will provide telecommunications services, network systems, equipment and maintenance.
