Army chooses Lucent for network services

Lucent Technologies Inc. has won several contracts worth $36.3 million to provide network integration and professional services at Army installations in North America and Europe, the company said yesterday.

The services will support the Army's Installation Information Infrastructure Modernization Program to upgrade the voice and data network infrastructure at Army bases around the world.

The contracts include bases at Fort Gordon and Fort Benning in Georgia and Schofield Enclave in Hawaii as well as Husterhohe Kaserne, Pulaski Barracks and Kleber Kaserne in Germany.

Lucent will provide these bases with installation and ongoing maintenance services for the new communications infrastructure that ties together voice switches and high-speed optical and data equipment.

"The bottom line is that by creating robust, next-generation networks, we are enabling critical communications and information to flow seamlessly between the military bases and, ultimately, to troops in the field," said Rick Miller, president of Lucent Technologies' government solutions division.

The Murray Hill, N.J., company develops network systems, services and software. The company had revenue of more than $9 billion for the fiscal year ended Sept. 30, 2004. It is No. 78 on the 2004 Top 100 list of federal IT prime contractors compiled by GCN's sister publication, Washington Technology.
