DISA upgrades ATM nets

DISA upgrades ATM nets

The Defense Information Systems Agency is adding asynchronous transfer mode concentrators to its secure Defense ATM Information Systems Network (DATMS) in the continental United States and to the Defense Information Systems Network for the Pacific.

Cell Exchange concentrators from TimePlex Federal Systems Inc. of Fairfax, Va., will boost DATMS' bandwidth by carrying its classified data securely over the unclassified DISN. The move will eliminate the need for dual networks for secure traffic.

The TimePlex concentrators cost DISA about $2 million. Installation will likely be done by late spring, officials said.
