Lumen Technologies is to Provide Connectivity and Network Services to Navy JAGs
Lumen Technologies announced on May 12 that the Navy had selected the company to provide secure high-speed connectivity, WiFi, unified communications and managed network services to the U.S. Navy Judge Advocate General (JAG) Corps. Under the 12-year task order, Lumen will provide connectivity solutions via software-defined wide area networking (SD-WAN) and managed security services hosted at the company’s federal data centers in support of 20 Navy JAG sites in the continental U.S. “Our secure high-speed connectivity will empower the Navy JAG Corps to efficiently meet its mission to provide Navy commanders, sailors and their families with legal solutions whenever and wherever required to enable effective naval and joint operations,” said Zain Ahmed, regional vice president of Lumen’s federal government business.
The task order, which has an initial term of one year with 11 one-year options, was awarded under the General Services Administration’s 15-year, $50 billion Enterprise Infrastructure Solutions (EIS) program. EIS is a multiple-award contract vehicle for federal government agencies to purchase information technology and telecommunications infrastructure services. It gives federal agencies the flexibility and agility to migrate to modern communications and IT services that meet strict government security standards, according to the company.
