The Army has chosen Verizon Business to modernize communications infrastructure and systems at Fort Huachuca in Arizona under a new task order worth up to $20 million.
Under the task order, which spans 30 months, Verizon's work will support increased bandwidth and converged communications at the base.
The Army awarded the order through the $4 billion Infrastructure Modernization contract, which was specifically created to cover telecommunications and network capabilities at the service's facilities. Verizon is one of 10 prime contractors on the vehicle.
Fort Huachuca, located southeast of Tucson, houses the Army's Intelligence Center, the Joint Interoperability Test Command and the Army Network Enterprise Technology Command/9th Army Signal Command.
