Richmond logistics center upgrades networks

The Defense Supply Center in Richmond, Va., will upgrade its local and wide area networks to streamline logistics support and procurement for its Defense Department customers.

The upgrade is part of a $3.8 million delivery order the center awarded yesterday to Dimension Data Holdings of Reston, Va. Under the one-year base order with four optional years, Dimension Data's Government Services Group will support the networks and help the center fulfill design and security requirements set by its parent, the Defense Logistics Agency.

'Because the DSCR provides logistics support to the military around the clock, availability and security are of the utmost importance,' said Steve Clark, the center's telecommunications manager, in a release. 'The improved network will offer remote access, high availability, better scalability and enhanced security.'

The Center supplies all types of aviation products to military services and DOD agencies. Its networks serve more than 2,500 users.
