Senate seeks vendors for telecom modernization

The Senate is seeking qualified bidders as it begins a project to overhaul its existing telecommunications system.

In a recent notice, the Senate Office of the Sergeant at Arms said it is looking to transition from its Time Division Multiplex voice network-managed solution to one based on Internet Protocol Telephony (IPT). Responses are due Oct. 31.

Under the Senate's telecommunications modernization project, the winning vendor will be expected to:
  • Review the existing infrastructure design and suggest modifications to the IPT

  • Develop an IPT-enabled network architecture

  • Install and test necessary hardware and software

  • Conduct the transition from the old to the new system and

  • Provide operation support and training for the new system.
