DISA adds fiber-optic vendors for GIG-BE

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 contracts, DISA declined to name the winning fiber-optic vendors and cited 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.

In September, DISA awarded two contracts for GIG-BE fiber-optic services.

The fiber-optic vendors will establish service delivery points and oversee network management, information and physical security, and commercial transport leases.
