LGS Innovations has been awarded a $7.3 million task order to upgrade the network at Joint Base Lewis-McChord, near Seattle.
LGS will provide a robust fiber overhaul to the base’s network architecture. The project, scheduled for completion by April 2016, will improve network resiliency and lower operating costs, according to a company news release.
Under the terms of the task order, LGS will engineer, furnish, install, secure, test, and migrate a robust fiber overhaul to the base’s network architecture. The modernization effort, with a period of performance from May 2014 to April 2016, will significantly improve network resiliency as well as lower the cost of ownership.
“This solution is forward-looking as it not only satisfies current needs, but also creates a cost effective foundation for potential future upgrades to a 40 or 100 Gigabit network,” said LGS Innovations CEO Kevin Kelly.
