DISA adds fiber vendors to the GIG-BE program

The Defense Information Systems Agency has added three vendors to the fiber-optic portion of the $900 million Global Information Grid-Bandwidth Expansion program.

The three multiple-year contracts are worth $55 million for implementation and $19 million for lifecycle support. DISA chose the winners from a field of 10 companies.

As with the earlier two contracts, DISA declined to name the new vendors, citing security concerns.

Through GIG-BE, DISA is creating a Synchronous Optical Network with throughput of 10-Gbps for Defense Department users at 90 sites worldwide.
