The Defense Information Systems Agency has released a request for information on digital videoconferencing technologies for use worldwide.
The Defense Video Service Program Management Office wants recommendations of systems that will let Defense Department users choose their level of service. This could range from a multipoint conferencing hub service to an end-to-end service that would include site operation, maintenance and equipment, DISA officials said.
Conferencing units can include studio, fixed, desktop, mobile and deployable systems and related installation or maintenance services, according to the RFI released April 16.
DOD uses videoconferencing in its combatant commands' to execute war plans, and in military training, simulation and general unit command and operation.
DISA will use the RFI responses to develop a request for proposals slated for release early this summer. Vendors can submit responses until May 16 via the Web.
