Sprint Corp. adds managed network services to communications contract

The Federal Technology Service has modified Sprint Corp.'s FTS 2001 long-haul communications contract to add managed network services.

Sprint will offer network design, implementation, operation and management of agencies' frame relay and asynchronous transfer mode networks from its operations center in Herndon, Va. The contract's goal is for Sprint to resolve 95 percent of an agency's networking problems before the agency detects them.

Sprint will offer four types of services:

•'Managed router service, including design and integration

•'Managed ATM service

•'Managed hubs, extending past a Sprint router to an intelligent hub

•'Managed implementation of government-furnished equipment, after which the agency manages the network.

All services except for managed ATM service, which is available only in the 48 contiguous states, are available in the 50 states, as well as Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands.

Managed network services also can apply to existing equipment from expired FTS 2000 contracts.

Contact FTS at 703-610-2546.
