DISA extends Verizon's network management deal

The Defense Information Systems Agency has awarded a one-year, $7.4 million contract extension to Verizon Communications Inc. to supply bandwidth manager services to the agency's Defense Information Systems Network.

DISN is the Defense Department enterprise network that handles data, video and voice services.

Verizon Business, the company unit that serves federal government customers, will provide bandwidth managers to direct data communications, network security and network management.

The work falls under the DISN Switched/Bandwidth Management Continental U.S. contract, which the company has held since 1996.
